A Practical Evaluation of DAA Technologies against Emerging Standards
Tuesday, October 06, 2020: 12:05 PM - 1:00 PM
Unable to conduct Beyond Visual Line of Sight (BVLOS) flights due to not having a working collision avoidance system? Are you a developer that is looking to certify your Detect and Avoid (DAA) system against standardized requirements? This poster is for intermediate to expert level developers and integrators alike who are seeking to build and/or employ Detect and Avoid systems in their UAS operations. I will be reviewing a method that has been developed to evaluate a complete Detect and Avoid system to support BVLOS operations. This method has been developed in accordance with standards that are emerging from the UAS community for using DAA technology to achieve BVLOS flights. I am working on testing and evaluating multiple DAA systems utilizing a robust and controlled test plan to create baselines for employing these systems in the development of safety cases. This testing can be used to determine baseline data for informing what kinds of DAA systems may be applicable to a safety case, such that the user can balance choosing a system which will best suit their needs at the best price point. This data can also be utilized to create multi sensory DAA systems and can accurately inform simulations due to the validity of the data being recorded in consistent conditions.
