Vigilant Aerospace Director of Business Development, Zach Peterson, will be speaking at the 2022 UAS Summit & Expo at 3:10 PM on Tuesday, October 4th. The presentation titled “FlightHorizon Multi-Sensor Detect-and-Avoid System” will be featured on the Summit’s Innovation Stage. The 15-minute presentation will discuss the company’s hands-on work developing detect-and-avoid (DAA) safety systems with multi-sensor integration that provide reliable collision avoidance with or without human intervention and meet technical standards to provide a clear path to regulatory compliance. The presentation will also touch experiences adding new air traffic surveillance sensors , UTM integration and Remote ID data into the airspace management system, progress on providing automatic detect-and-avoid for larger military and civilian UAS operating in both controlled and uncontrolled airspace, results from system testing at recent National Detect-and-Avoid trials, and brief update on the installation of the FlightHorizon airspace management and DAA system at the Northern Plains UAS Test site.

About the UAS Summit & Expo

The UAS Summit & Expo started as a small gathering of regional stakeholders. Now, 16 years later, the event in the Northern Plains of North Dakota has become a yearly major event for UAS experts from around the world. It’s the original epicenter of drone research, earned its place as the Silicon Valley of Drones and as you’ll see from the commercial, government and military flight activity filling the sky of the Northern Plains and beyond every day, it has truly become America’s UAS proving grounds.
