ABSTRACT: This SBIR pursues and identifies approaches to achieving postern (rear-looking) sense and avoid (SAA) for remotely piloted aircraft (RPA). After idenfiying and assessing the approaches, this effort develops the most promising and commercially viable candidate. The effort concludes with a demonstration of performance and capability in a relevant environment. BENEFIT: This technology can potential increase aircraft and UAV safety from a sense and avoid scenario. Further, a proven system will accelerate UAV integraiton into the U.S. National Air Space and globally.
