uAvionix awarded FAA contract to scale C-band frequency management for regional UAS C2

uAvionix has been awarded a Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) Broad Agency Announcement contract to scale C-band frequency management for Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) Command and Control (C2) communications to a regional level with multiple UAS operating in proximity to one another. 

The efforts allow multiple UAS from different companies to operate near one another while maintaining reliable and deconflicted communications within the limited range of spectrum available for UAS operations.

Building on previous collaboration with the FAA, uAvionix demonstrated a Dynamic Frequency Management System (DFMS) for UAS C2 using the protected C-band spectrum. Under this new contract, uAvionix will demonstrate the use of DFMS as a National Airspace C-band frequency management application that meets regulatory policy and encourages commercial build-out of C2 Communications Service Provider infrastructure.

The demonstration is expected to show how organisations can dynamically assign available frequencies within the protected C-band spectrum to multiple UAS operating near each other using the SkyLine Platform. These frequency assignments would be deconflicted and time-phased, ensuring consistent and reliable C2 communications throughout each flight.
