Raytheon Company’s Ground Based Detect and Avoid team received the Air Traffic Control Association’s annual Team Award for outstanding achievement for its collaboration with the Air Force Research Laboratory, academic partners, and federal, state, and local government agencies to integrate drones safely into the National Airspace System. The award was presented at the ATCA Annual Congress in Washington 21-23 November 2019.
Contracted by the US Air Force through the Department of Transportation’s Volpe Center Volpe, GBDAA SkyVision, is the only mobile beyond visual line-of-sight system certified by the Federal Aviation Administration to provide drone operators with real-time aircraft display data, satisfying a key “see and avoid” requirement.
The system is now operational in Ohio at the Springfield-Beckley Municipal Airport and will be used to test the safety and efficiency of small drone operations in the 200-square-mile drone test range.
