UAS Integration in the NAS (UAS-NAS) Systems Integration and Operationalization (SIO) Demonstrations

UAS Integration in the NAS (UAS-NAS) Systems Integration and Operationalization (SIO) Demonstration

The goals of the NASA Aeronautics Research Mission Directorate (ARMD) Integrated Aviation Systems Program (IASP) include technology development for integrating UAS into the NAS. The UAS-NAS Project provides research finding to reduce technical barriers associated with integrating UAS into the NAS by utilizing integrated system level testing in a relevant environment. Since its inception in 2011, the UAS-NAS Project has been focused on providing research findings to inform standards development for detect and avoid (DAA) and command and control (C2) technologies. However, the long-term vision of the project has been to advance the overall state-of-the-art for the technologies necessary to achieve robust risk-based, data-supported oversight system, to obtain UAS access in the NAS. To help communicate the expectations and the role that NASA will play, the UAS-NAS Project is hosting an Industry Day on November 30, 2017.
