Sagetech Avionics to test detect and avoid technology with NUAIR
Sagetech Avionics Inc., a U.S. aerospace technology company providing industry-leading situational awareness solutions for crewed and uncrewed aerial systems, and NUAIR(Northeast UAS Airspace Integration Research Alliance, Inc.) a New York based nonprofit with a mission to safely integrate uncrewed aircraft systems (UAS) into the national airspace, have partnered to test Detect and Avoid (DAA) solutions and Automatic Dependent Surveillance–Broadcast (ADS-B) transponders, both developed by Sagetech. The testing to occur will be for various concepts of operations including package delivery, lateral infrastructure inspection, and other advanced operations where crewed and uncrewed aviation must safely share the same airspace.
Testing will take place in Syracuse, New York early this year. The partnership will also focus on the integration of various detect and avoid technologies and non-cooperative sensors, utilizing the robust LTE network at the New York UAS Test Site and within New York’s 50-mile UAS Corridor developed specifically for a wide variety of UAS operations.
