Exelis has signed an agreement with four Federal Aviation Administration-designated test facilities to study the integration of unmanned aircraft systems into U.S. civilian airspace.

The sites will use Exelis' Symphony RangeVue sense-and-avoid tool for operators and test personnel to access real-time and historical aircraft surveillance data via a Web platform, Exelis said Tuesday.

Symphony RangeVue is designed to function as either a command center support and post-event analysis resource or a sense-and-avoid tool in the field, Exelis said.

“The test sites receive air traffic control-quality surveillance data, increasing safety and enabling beyond-line-of-site operations, while Exelis gains critical product feedback which will be used to shape and validate our service offerings,“ said Ed Sayadian, vice president of civil and aerospace systems at Exelis.

Test sites covered under the agreement include:

  • Griffiss International Airport in New York
  • University of Alaska at Fairbanks
  • University of North Dakota
  • Virginia Tech
