A key to routine airspace access for autonomous aircraft will be the availability of automated detect-and-avoid (DAA) systems that enable them to meet the regulatory requirement that all aircraft stay well clear of other traffic. So far, size, weight and power requirements have dictated that most DAA work be focused on larger unmanned aircraft flying at higher altitudes, but technology is advancing, and sensors and processors are becoming smaller and more powerful. And the need to detect ...
