Flight Test for UAS Sense-and-Avoid Technology is September 20
UND, NDSU, NASA-Langley, and MITRE Corp. will host a flight test for UAS sense-and-avoid technologies Thursday, September 20, at the Grand Forks International Airport.
These technologies are designed to help integrate remotely piloted aircraft into the national air transportation system. The research flight test will feature a specially equipped NASA Langley Research Center Cirrus SR-22 that will serve as a surrogate UAS. The surrogate UAS will automatically maneuver using Automatic Dependent Surveillance Broadcast (ADS-B) data and software algorithms developed by The MITRE Corporation and UND. A UND Cessna 172 will act as an intruder aircraft.
