FAA grants AFRL waiver to operate SkyVision technology to advance UAS research
The Air Force Research Laboratory in partnership with the Life Cycle Management Center has a newly established test site to fly Unmanned Aerial Vehicles from beyond visual line of sight. The technology known as SkyVision allows for safe, effective operation of UAVs by detecting and avoiding other aircraft while in flight through the use of radar feeds from local airports. In simple terms, SkyVision is an air traffic control system for UAS and will allow the lab to test defense-related UAS technologies without reliance on spotters or chase aircraft.
