About the UAS Integration Pilot ProgramThe UAS Integration Pilot Program is the FAA’s premiere program focusing on evaluating and testing technologies and methodologies for advanced UAS operational concepts in order to safely and efficiently integrate unmanned aircraft into the national airspace. In May 2018, United States Department of Transportation Secretary Elaine L. Chao announced ten UAS IPP sites in the nation representing a mix of states, counties, cities and tribes. The Choctaw Nation of Oklahoma (CNO) was one of the ten IPP sites that were selected as well as the only tribal government lead participant.

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.
