Observations and musings from the uAvionix team.
There has been a lot of discussion in the past couple of years about just what the right technology is for tracking the swarms of drones coming our way in the next decade. Because uAvionix is a communications, navigation, and surveillance (CNS) company focused almost solely in the drone industry – we are wrapped right up in the middle of the debate.
We've posted our white paper on implementation of a Remote Identification system for UAS. Our solution offers standalone functionality with optional enhanced capabilities when connected to LTE or other cloud data services.
Could a contact lens-sized microchip, a flash drive-sized receiver and a mobile application provide the solution for remote identification of unknown drones?
Performance Based Navigation (PBN) can help the UAS industry both measure and qualify the navigation capabilities of unmanned vehicles as we move towards operations over people, beyond line of sight and closer to the integration of our airspace.
Christian Ramsey of uAvionix shares thoughts on the use of low-power ADS-B to improve safety and protect the integrity of the National Airspace System.
