Inmarsat and TTP bring UAV airspace access a step closer
Inmarsat and the European Space Agency (ESA) today announced the development of a compact satellite terminal for Uncrewed Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) as part of the ground-breaking IRIS air traffic modernisation programme: paving the way for UAVs to be safely integrated into commercial airspace.
Aeromobile: Keeping people connected while in the air
Whether we are traveling by car, train or boat, we all take for granted that we are able to call family, friends, and colleagues. But for a long time, one glaring exception was the inability to make calls while in the air.
Fresh approaches are propelling the UAV space to new heights
By designing agnostic core technology components for partners to build their own solutions around, Inmarsat and TTP are pointing towards a new way of working in the UAV market.
Detect and avoid: how do we make UAVs “uncollidable”?
Sensor fusion will be needed to unlock BVLOS, but achieving low SWAP-C is key to take “detect and avoid” to the next level. TTP went back to the first principles to work out what is possible with different sensors.
BVLOS for UAVs: How can we let smaller drones off the leash?
Beyond vision line of sight (BVLOS) or autonomous operation enabled by low SWaP-C Electronic Conspicuity and Detect and Avoid technology based on sensor fusion could unlock many business cases for lightweight UAVs.
Towards a technology platform for future enterprise drones
With Beyond Visual Line of Sight (BVLOS) operations just over the horizon, future enterprise drones could vastly improve industrial productivity. Drone manufacturers must guide the development of a common underlying technology platform for their target market segments, says Vidhya Sridhar.
Ready to take off? – Towards Detect and Avoid for Commercial UAVs
Commercial drones, and the business models they enable, will truly take off when fleets of UAVs can operate autonomously in shared airspace.
For this to happen, UAVs need to be able to fly beyond the visual line-of-sight (BVLOS) of remote human pilots, and the technologies that make this possible need to come at an acceptable size, weight, power, and cost (SWaP-C).
This whitepaper focuses on the technical challenges standing in the way of UAV autonomy, including last resort tactical airspace deconfliction by means of onboard sensing, also known as Detect and Avoid (DAA).
We also consider the safety goal posts, what can be achieved with different sensors and data processing techniques, and whether we can meet industry needs for SWaP-C and chart a course towards certification.
