UAS Flight Test Visualization at FutureFlight Central
June 22, 2017

NASA researchers have developed an aircraft data streaming capability that can be used to visualize live aircraft in near real-time. During the joint Federal Aviation Administration (FAA)/NASA Airborne Collision Avoidance System (ACAS) flight series, test sorties between NASA's Ikhana unmanned aircraft and a manned intruder aircraft were shown in real-time at NASA Ames Research Center's FutureFlight Central (FFC) Tower simulation facility as a virtual representation of the encounters. This capability leveraged existing live surveillance, video, and audio data streams distributed through a Live, Virtual, Constructive (LVC) test environment and depicted the encounter from the point of view of the Ikhana unmanned aircraft showing the proximity of the manned aircraft. It is anticipated that visualizing the encounters in real-time will provide a safe and effective method for providing observation of live flight testing during this, and future, flight campaigns, as well as provide remote researchers with the ability to remotely monitor flight test activities.
