Real-World Testing of Multi-Sensor Detect-and-Avoid Systemsan SAE Innovations in Mobility:
Tuesday, May 18, 2021 10:15 – 10:45 AM ETVenue: ONLINE Session description: The unmanned aircraft industry is eagerly awaiting a detect-and-avoid safety system that will enable UAS to fly beyond visual line-of-sight. This presentation will discuss the available technologies, technical standards, emerging industry consensus and regulatory direction around detect-and-avoid systems and also present recent real-world testing of multi-sensor system that is designed to meet the need for a variety of operating environments and aircraft. The presentation will discuss current challenges, strategies for achieving BVLOS safety and upcoming industry developments. Register now to join us for the 2021 Innovations in Mobility virtual event.
About Innovations in MobilityThe 2021 Innovations in Mobility: Aerospace Digital Summit is where aerospace mobility leaders convene to leverage cutting-edge technology and design, develop safety measures, integrate current regulations, suggest future policies and understand how to expand markets and diversify revenue streams. Innovations In Mobility, produced by SAE International, has traditionally been a series of meetups in multiple cities throughout North America and Europe, but now it’s going virtual – and global! SAE proudly introduces the first of two fully digital Innovations In Mobility Digital Summits in 2021, with this May 2021 event focusing on new mobility within air and aerospace. This new, digital, global event will enable air and aerospace executives, developers, and engineers from multiple continents to discuss the accelerated advancement and development of next generation air vehicles and their supporting technologies and infrastructure.

Vigilant Aerospace is the leading developer of detect-and-avoid and airspace management software for uncrewed aircraft systems (UAS or drones). The company’s product, FlightHorizon, is based on two NASA patents and uses data from multiple sources to display a real-time picture of the air traffic around a UAS and to provide automatic avoidance maneuvers to prevent collisions. The software is designed to meet industry technical standards, to provide automatic safety and to allow UAS to safely fly beyond the sight of the pilot. The software has won multiple industry awards and the company has had contracts and users at NASA, the FAA, the U.S. Department of Defense and with a variety of drone development programs.
