UAS Situational Awareness Tactical Kit
Emergency Management | BVLOS Operations Solution
The UAS Situational Awareness (USA) Tactical Kit is designed to increase the safety of UAS operations by providing enhanced situational awareness of manned and unmanned aircraft. The kit utilizes the UAS-C system provide tracking of cooperative UAS aircraft alongside manned aircraft equipped with ADS-B. The ADS-B targets are tracked via the Sunhillo Margate II ADS-B Receiver. All aircraft are displayed on a feature rich Surveillance Monitoring System (SMS) which allows geofencing, ownship, moving map, recording, and graphical overlays.
A hardened secure waterproof carry-on sized luggage case is utilized to house the UAS-C, UAS-C Gateway, Margate II ADS-B Receiver, and SMS Laptop. A lightweight antenna is used to bring in the ADS-B feed.
UAS-C System Components
Provides a proprietary connection to the UAV Ground Control Station to receive the positional information and forwards the data to the UAS-C Gateway. Provides feed for UAS pilot See & Avoid Display.
Acts as the conduit to provide updated aircraft positions of all participating UAS-C units, Receives the ADS-B or optional Radar feeds, and processes them to the Surveillance Monitoring System (SMS) display. The Gateway then returns the fused surveillance data to the PIC for See & Avoid.
UAS ATC Integration
UAS-C System for Emergency Management
Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) can be valuable tools in emergency response. They accelerate response and increase the safety of first responders and people in distress. With regulatory approval for routine BVLOS UAS operations in the National Airspace System (NAS) emerging as a near-term priority, the use of UAS in real world disaster response has become a real prospect.
Sunhillo’s UAS-C System was used in this Emergency Management UAS Operation Demonstration at Woodbine Airport in June of 2021 to track the UAS flying a 12 mile BVLOS mission, track the chase aircraft, and provide situational awareness of manned aircraft via ADS-B to the pilot and the command center.
