The Cincinnati Business Courier (https://www.bizjournals.com/cincinnati/news/2018/07/20/university-of-cincinnati-project-secures-nearly-1m.html) and UASVision.com report that a University of Cincinnati project to develop a new management system for unmanned aircraft has secured nearly USD1 million in federal grants.
According to the Courier: “The Regional Unmanned Traffic Management System (RUTMS) was one of 33 projects submitted to the Ohio Federal Research Network, a state-funded organization that funds research and development initiatives at 11 Ohio colleges and universities. RUTMS is led by a research team at UC’s College of Engineering and Applied Sciences. It aims to develop RouteMaster – an air traffic management system that will allow drones and other unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV) to avoid each other mid-flight, even if those systems operate on different controls.
“Sinclair College, a longtime contributor to drone research, collaborated with UC on the project. Other partners include Springfield-based Demeter, Inc. and Simlat, an Israeli software company.”
