 Lusby, Maryland (10/24/2012) – R³ Engineering LLC (R³E) announces the first ADS-B (Automatic Dependent Surveillance – Broadcast) based, fully autonomous collision avoidance sequence, executed by a sense and avoid system installed on an unmanned aircraft system (UAS).  On Friday August 10th, 2012, an AWSAS (R³E’s All Weather Sense and Avoid System) installed on a research UAS, with no external command or control inputs, commanded the UAS’s auto-pilot to depart from its programmed flight path, execute an internally computed maneuver to avoid a potential collision, and then return to the original planned flight path when well clear of the intruder.
