Abstract
The proposing team will develop a practical, complete Autonomous UAS Detect, Sense, and Avoid (AU-DSA) system for safe and effective UAS operations within the National Airspace System (NAS) and outside of Special Use Airspace. The AU-DSA will incorporate a compact, flexible, state-of-the-art avionics system, innovative guidance algorithms designed to comply with FAA-mandated operating procedures, and an intuitive interface for communications with operators, ATC, or other pilots in order to provide the complete range of functionalities needed for a UAS to operate safely and autonomously in the NAS.
