FlightHorizon GCS™

FlightHorizon GCS™ (Ground Control Station) is a complete solution to allow unmanned aircraft pilots to detect, track, predict and avoid other aircraft. The software sends self-separation and commands to maintain well-clear distances 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 GCS™ is installed on a laptop or workstation at the ground control station for the unmanned aircraft and uses an ADS-B receiver at the workstation and a transponder on the aircraft to track the unmanned aircraft and all other nearby aircraft in real-time to provide situational awareness, traffic alerts, collision warnings and commands to maintain safe distances. When available, add-on data sources include ground-based radar and networked air traffic control feeds (Unmanned Traffic Management – UTM).

The user interface for unmanned pilots provides 2D map views, 3D synthetic cockpit views, and specific traffic warnings and avoidance commands in the form of audible, textual and visual guides.

FlightHorizon GCS™ 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).
