  9. Windhover Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) Software Ecosystem

    SBC: Windhover Labs            Topic: A2.02

    The safety of Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) flights is currently the responsibility of the pilot who is required to keep the vehicle within their line of sight (LoS). However, many UASs are capable of increasingly autonomous operation. As autonomy pushes against this boundary it is inevitable that the LoS requirement must be replaced with onboard intelligence to sense and avoid trouble without ...
