The NASA Unmanned Aerial System (UAS) Traffic Management (UTM) project successfully completed its Build 1 Demonstration August 24-September 2, 2015 at Crows Landing Airfield, California, which is approximately 95 miles northeast of NASA Ames Research Center. Numerous industry, academic, and government partners participated in the UTM demonstration with NASA Ames, including Exelis, Gryphon Sensors, San Jose State University, University of Nevada-Reno, Airware, SkySpecs, Unmanned Experts, Precision Hawk, Ne3rd, Harris, Verizon, and the Lone Star UAS Center. There were several objectives to the flight test, including the demonstration of UTM capabilities/procedures, navigation performance, and aircraft tracking. Data were collected on noise signatures and observations for weather models. Analysis of the results is underway to help design future UTM flight tests. (POC: Marcus Johnson)
