Raytheon Technologies’ intelligence and space business unit was tapped to field test uncrewed aircraft systems traffic management capabilities for the Federal Aviation Administration.
Raytheon Intelligence & Space said Monday it will perform data correlation using remote identification, update the cybersecurity capabilities of UTM technology and evaluate future concepts that support real-world small UAS operations.
Denis Donohue, president of surveillance and network systems at RI&S, said the company’s Skyler radar system will gather data for situational awareness and detect and avoid operation support.
RI&S will collaborate with the Virginia Tech Mid-Atlantic Aviation Partnership and the Lone Star UAS Center of Excellence & Innovation to conduct a diverse set of missions as part of the program.
FAA will use test outcomes to enable beyond visual line of sight and routine visual line of sight operations.
