Virginia test site deploys management platform to test BVLOS drone services such as conflict detection

CAL Analytics is testing its Contingency Management Platform (CMP) with the Virginia Tech Mid-Atlantic Aviation Partnership (MAAP), a Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) designated Unmanned Aircraft System (UAS) test site. The deployment of the CMP is part of a pilot program with MAAP, to enable BVLOS operations.

CAL’s CMP will offer critical airspace services, such as situational awareness (Kongsberg), conflict detection (CAL), health monitoring (Resilienx), and various weather services (TruWeather) to help ensure the safe operation of all unmanned aircraft.

“We are excited to work with MAAP and bring our CMP platform to their site for expanding their operational use-case and build towards a routine beyond visual line of sight (BVLOS) capability,” said Dr. Sean Calhoun, managing director of CAL Analytics. “We built the CMP to provide all the critical services to enable BVLOS operations, but look to these partnerships, like with MAAP, to validate the CMP capabilities for variety of operations and under different environment conditions,” he continued.

“Software that can provide comprehensive airspace awareness is a crucial source of safety-critical information for a ground-based pilot,” said John Coggin, MAAP’s associate director. “This visibility into multiple characteristics of the airspace is essential for drone operations to safely expand towards broad commercial viability, and we’re excited to leverage CAL’s platform to explore potential solutions.”
