SARA proposes to integrate a Beyond Line of Sight (BLOS) system on a NOAA-selected UAS platform. The BLOS system will detect cooperative aircraft as well as non-cooperative aircraft by including SARA’s Passive Acoustic Non-cooperative aircraft Collision Avoidance System (PANCAS). PANCAS is an acoustic system which is low weight, low cost and has a 360-degree field of view. SARA will develop a safety case for the integrated system, including an autonomous collision avoidance maneuver. SARA has performed similar integrations on NOAA relevant platforms and can leverage this experience to offer NOAA an accelerated timeline and cost savings. SARA has a working relationship with multiple UAS manufacturers who endorse this proposal.
