The Unmanned Aircraft System (UAS) Integration into the National Airspace System (NAS) Project has begun a two-month flight test program at Armstrong Flight Research Center with the NASA Ames-developed Detect and Avoid (DAA) System, referred to as “Autoresolver.” Three UAS flights were completed between June 15-22, 2015 during which 57 encounter scenarios of various geometries and vertical profiles were flown. The encounter scenarios, between NASA's Ikhana UAS and a manned intruder aircraft, were designed to collect data on DAA system performance in real-world conditions and uncertainties. Resulting flight test data and analysis results will be used to validate the DAA system performance and to add fidelity to simulation models used to inform Minimum Operating Performance Standards (MOPS) for integrating UAS into routine NAS operations.
