Detect-and-Avoid capabilities for next-generation UAS

In order to safely and seamlessly integrate UAS into non-segregated airspace, a robust Detect and Avoid (DAA) capability needs to be established. The New York UAS Test Site at Griffiss International Airport is evaluating next- generation UAS ground-based detect and avoid (GBDAA) systems capable of enabling beyond visual line of sight (BVLOS) operations in airport terminal areas and in transition airspace.

Griffiss has installed and activated a dedicated precision air traffic surveillance system based on wide area multilateration (WAM), ground-based primary 3-D Radar and automatic dependent surveillance-broadcast (ADS-B) provides high-definition air traffic surveillance (independent of legacy FAA air traffic control radar) for the NY UAS Test Site. Installed in the UAS Operations Control Center is a state-of-the-art multimedia and air traffic data capture, display, storage, playback, analysis capability and operations support system. System capability includes synchronized multi-channel recording and playback of video, audio, and data, including accurate aircraft track and telemetry data.

The engineering design philosophy for NY UAS Test Site instrumentation is for operation at a high Technology Readiness Level (TRL).  This system is designed to be extensible, both in its ability to incorporate additional ground and airborne sensors, and to expand to cover additional airspace, from the surface to Class A airspace and above, over a 15,000 square mile lightly-populated area in Upstate New York.

Griffiss has a signed Interconnection Security Agreement (ISA) with NASA for Live, Virtual, Constructive-Distributed Environment (LVC-DE) air traffic surveillance data exchange. This intent of Griffiss is eventually to extend this capability to support exchange of live Griffiss surveillance data with the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA).

NUAIR is playing a leading role working with the FAA & NASA, testing a system that would make it possible for unmanned aircraft to fly routine operations in United States airspace.

The state-of-the-art New York UAS Test Site Operations Control Center at Griffiss International Airport provides tracking capability for unmanned aircraft systems. The system was installed by Ax Enterprise, a New York State Certified Women-Owned Small Business that specializes in Certified Hardware, Software and Systems Engineering and Light Electro-Mechanical Manufacturing
