The UAS-C attaches to the ground stations of UAS systems and provides Situational Awareness, UAS Tracking, Voice Communications, and See & Avoid for UAS pilots.
The UAS-C provides tracking of all UAS aircraft regardless of size or altitude. The UAS-C has addressed the major surveillance challenges flying BVLOS and/or in controlled airspace creating a ubiquitous surveillance picture for critical operations in controlled airspace.
UAV Tracking: Tracking of UAV‘s does not rely on Radar or ADS-B. By connecting to the UAS Ground Control System (GCS), Sunhillo’s UAS-Connector (UAS-C) converts the positional data that is already being sent from the UAS to the GCS into a radar or ADS-B message using Sunhillo’s proprietary software with no equipment required on the aircraft. This message can then be sent to ATC or a local command center and displayed with other radar and ADS-B targets for situational awareness. The UAS-C can be used remotely via LTE or directly connected via Ethernet.
Situational Awareness: Both manned and unmanned aircraft pilots have a complete visual situational awareness picture. The UAS-C provides the pilot with a See and Avoid display showing all aircraft (via Radar and ADS-B) in the immediate area as well as sending the location of the UAV to ATC or a local command center.
Voice Communications: The UAS-C provides ground-to-ground voice communications between UAS Operators and a local command center or ATC.
