【NCKU R&D Forum】

  • R&D Forum, NCKU
    Speaker : Dr. Won Zon Chen, Technical Fellow, Northrop Grumman Corporation, USA
    Topic:  Sense and Avoid (SAA) Technology for Unmanned Aircraft (UA)
    Date: 4 Dec. 2008
    Time: 14.00-16.00
    Venue: Lecture Hall, Department of EE

    Speech Info:
    Use of unmanned aircraft (UA) has been quickly grown for military applications and explosive growth also expected for commercial applications.  However, for these growths to be realized UA must be fully integrated with manned aircraft and be allowed to "file and fly" like manned aircraft.  One technological barrier for such full integration is the lack of an onboard sense and avoid (SAA) system capable of providing UA with the ability to autonomously detect and avoid collisions with other aircraft.

    This talk will describe the SAA problems/needs, various candidate technologies, an overall system-of-system solution approach, and recent flight test results.  Advanced virtual prototyping via hardware-in-the-loop (HWIL) ground laboratory for software development and system integration will also be briefly discussed.
