Abstract:

To allow for routine operation in the NAS, Navy UAS platforms will be required to have a certified Air-Based Sense and Avoid (AB-SAA) system to provide collision avoidance against non-cooperative threats. The choosen AB-SAA sensor is an air-to-air radar system being developed by RDRTec. This effort will 1) optimize tracker design developed in Phase 1 that accurately characterize the tracker errors when predicting the target"s future position, 2) develop threat determination and suggested avoidance maneuver algorithms using tracker and threat maneuvers uncertainties, 3)Prove the performance using Monte-Carlo simulation that uses Fire Scout sensor performance models, dynamics models, and stressing scenarios, 4)Develop real time code for SAA system and 5) Optionally, demonstrate in end-to-end HWIL simulation and flight tests.
