FlightHorizon AIR™ is a complete solution to allow unmanned aircraft pilots to detect, track, predict and avoid other aircraft. The software sends self-separation and collision avoidance commands to the unmanned aircraft pilot to avoid conflicts quickly and efficiently.
Based on a patent and software developed at NASA, the system uses algorithms and flight rules to achieve safety and regulatory compliance when flying beyond visual line-of-sight.
FlightHorizon AIR™ is installed on a laptop or workstation at the ground control station for the unmanned aircraft and uses data received by the onboard transponder to track all nearby aircraft.
The data is delivered over one of the aircraft’s radio control channels to the ground-based FlightHorizon software to provide situational awareness, traffic alerts, collision warnings and collision avoidance commands to the unmanned pilot. Using the onboard receiver, detect-and-avoid functions can be provided at any distance from the ground control station.
Available add-on data sources include ground-based radar and networked air traffic control feeds (UTM).
The user interface for unmanned pilots provides situational awareness, 2D map views, 3D synthetic cockpit views, and specific traffic warnings and avoidance commands as audible, textual and visual guides.
FlightHorizon AIR™ is designed to meet the FAA’s Part 107.205 waiver requirements for beyond visual line-of-sight flights and the anticipated RTCA SC-228 Phase II Minimum Operating Performance Standards (MOPS).
