About the Alaska UAS Interest GroupFrom the website: The Alaska UAS Interest Group started in the mid-2000s as a coming together of Alaskans interested in UAS operations in Alaska. In the early years, the primary purpose of the group was to disseminate news of UAS operations in Alaska, or involving Alaskans in other locations, and provide a network of UAS resources for operations that involved Alaskans through a contact list.The Alaska UAS Interest Group is supported by the Alaska Center for Unmanned Aircraft Systems Integration (ACUASI), the Geophysical Institute, and the University of Alaska Fairbanks.

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.
