Abstract
RDRTec with Raytheon as a subcontractor and transition partner proposes to design, develop, and demonstrate feasibility of enhanced approaches to unmanned aircraft weather avoidance using a combination of organic weather radar and electro-optics.
The goal of this effort is to provide increased safety against weather hazards while minimizing unnecessary deviations by using visual cues and measurable parameters such as cloud heights that are made available by the combination of organic weather radar and electro-optics.
