Abstract

Planck Aero and UC San Diego will collaborate to adapt and modify technology to address defense needs by providing an innovative, modular aerial navigation system that is capable of identifying and monitoring the accuracy, availability, and integrity of sensor sources, and ingesting all data into algorithms capable of providing a precision navigation solution for the duration of a mission without reliance on GPS or human intervention. The result is a robust and accurate odometry and localization system for high-speed flight for either manned or unmanned aircraft. The modular system acts to augment existing designs and architectures while provide a higher degree of reliability for autonomous navigation. This system relieves users of the dependence on GPS, which is not always reliable or available. The technology will be commercialized for logistics, urban air mobility, and military operations in contested environments.
