Vigilant Aerospace Systems’ CEO, Kraettli L. Epperson, is participating in a panel discussion at the upcoming Technology Collaboration Center Remote Sensing Technologies event at the NASA Johnson Space Center in Houston, Texas on October 12, 2016. The event, sponsored by the Strategic Sensing Alliance, is focused on bringing organizations together who are needing or developing new remote sensing-related technologies. The event will feature presentations on the latest technology advances and unmet challenges, in a format providing an opportunity for participants to network and explore potential partnerships. Mr. Epperson’s presentation during the panel will feature an exploration and discussion of the use of aircraft transponders and ground-based receivers to provide both interactive and automatic aircraft detection, tracking and avoidance for both small general aviation aircraft and unmanned drones; Including discussion of conflict detection algorithms, application of self-separation and well-clear strategies, and recursive checking of conflict resolutions.

About the Technology Collaboration Center (TCC):
From the website: The TCC concept arose after a series of high level meetings, focusing on how the community can more fully exploit the technological capabilities in the greater Houston region. A shared interest among our communities is in the development of more efficient interdisciplinary approaches to real world problems, with the goal of bringing those solutions into practice and to the market.

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.
