Abstract
The implementation of Sense and Avoid (S&A) capabilities on Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) present a particular challenge in that sensor technologies, visible, infrared and RF, tend to require too much space, weight and power (SWAP) for these relatively small airframes, yet these craft are a great threat to other aircraft. Consequently, the FAA is requiring S&A capabilities commensurate with current pilot's requirements to see and avoid while operating inside all national airspaces. This poses significant issues with the Navy's operation of UAS's. This investigation is focused on putting S&A capabilities on the Fire Scout using radar Technology. The candidate radar system used for this investigation is the ONR funded Mustang Technologies Fire Scout radar.
