Pegasus Imagery, Kongsberg Geospatial Sign MOU to advance the development of safe autonomous unmanned aircraft

Jul 2021 | No Comment

Kongsberg Geospatial, developers of the TerraLens Geospatial Software Development Kit (SDK), and Pegasus Imagery Ltd. an aerospace company developing advanced autonomous aircraft and sensor systems, announced today that they have signed an MOU to work together to advance the development of safe, autonomous Unmanned Aircraft.

Pegasus designs, manufactures and operates autonomous Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS) to deliver Intelligence Surveillance Reconnaissance (ISR) solutions at scale for industry and government. Equipped with proprietary Detect-and-Avoid (DAA) sensor systems, Pegasus aircraft are able to safely operate in shared airspace with manned and unmanned aircraft to collect and deliver scalable, on-demand, data solutions.

Pegasus Imagery’s technology includes the Autonomous Airspace Awareness System (A3S) – a Detect and Avoid sensor system that uses airborne radar and other sensors to autonomously avoid potential hazards like birds, other drones and manned aircraft; a Moisture & Icing Detection Alert System (MIDAS) that provides early detection and pilot notification of icing conditions and buildup for manned aircraft; and their own autonomous aircraft, the PV-02 Eos.

Pegasus Imagery also conducts Beyond Visual Line-of-Sight (BVLOS) flight operations, providing photogrammetry, LiDAR and enhanced Full-Motion Video (FMV) surveys for government and industrial clients. Their flight missions range from infrastructure surveys of power transmission lines, to surveillance of forest fires.

Pegasus will be implementing Kongsberg Geospatial’s IRIS UxS airspace situational awareness system as a navigational system for their Beyond Visual Line-of-Sight flight operations, and as part of their PV-02 Eos autonomous aircraft system.
