Abstract
An integrated autonomous sense and avoid system providing full omnidirectional situational awareness, real-time, CNS-ATM compliant avoidance maneuvers and advanced ground control/visualization. The on-board piece of the system is based on a lightweight compact Passive/Active Omnidirectional Infrared Detection module combined with an ADS-B transceiver. Using these together, the system builds a complete map of both ADS-B compliant and non-compliant/unresponsive objects (manned and unmanned) in the 3D airspace surrounding the small UAV. This information is used to effectively generate evasive maneuvers compliant to the airspace rules. The ground pice of the system provides real time situational awareness of the operator's own UAV as well as surrounding vehicles and obstacles by providing intuitive visualizations and decision aids, accurately mapping a complete airspace picture.
