Vigilant Aerospace Systems was recently featured in an article by Oklahoma Magazine ( on commercial drone integration into the U.S. national airspace. From the article:
“Our system provides the capability to detect-and-avoid aircraft and gives unmanned pilots air traffic alerts, conflict warnings and self-separation commands,” says Kraettli Epperson, Vigilant Aerospace CEO. “The system can also send avoidance commands to an autopilot and uses the existing air traffic control system and aviation radio transponders to detect, track and avoid an aircraft.”   “It is a very exciting time to be working in the autonomous systems and remote sensing industry because we are on the edge of a new technical frontier, and the land run has just begun,” said Epperson.   “We are making the same adjustments for self-driving cars, electric vehicles and both industrial and household robots right now,” Epperson says. “New technology always brings change, which can sometimes be difficult or even disquieting. Humans adjust, adapt and thrive when given new technologies.”   “Almost nobody wants to exchange their car for a horse and buggy or their plane ride for weeks on a leaky ship. Science and technology improve human life, so long as we are deliberate, careful and principled in their use.”

About Vigilant Aerospace Systems

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.
