Research Institution

KalScott Engineering is developing miniature electronic position reporting systems for unmanned air vehicles. These conform to FAA#39;s the RemoteID and ADS-B standards, while also being interoperable with IoT standards. Using the ADS-B standard, vehicles or personnel carrying these devices can be quot;seenquot; by ADS-B equipped aircraft. The position can also be reported via the RemoteID standard using wifi and bluetooth, and LTE, and received on other airborne or ground vehicles or ground nodes. In this SBIR project, we propose to develop and demonstrate the technology to support wildfire management operations, where manned and unmanned ground and aerial vehicles and personnel are involved in a highly dynamic and challenging environment. In Phase I, we will refine the technical requirements in conjunction with NASA and first responder personnel, make the necessary adaptations to our hardware, andnbsp;rapidly demo a proof-of-conceptnbsp;solution. In Phase II, the hardware and software solution will be refined, along with the network elements. Our firm already hasnbsp;commitments from a third party investor already for cost matching for Phase II-E, CCRPP and any post-SBIR commercialization (letter included).
