Safran demonstrates Patroller drone’s ability to operate in civilian airspace
Safran Electronics & Defense demonstrated a complete anti-collision function during flights, one of the keys to integrating drones in a civilian airspace shared with manned aircraft.
The "see and avoid" system developed by Safran and integrated in the Patroller's control system, combines traffic detection sensors, including an infrared optronic (electro-optical) sensor, and an automatic risk collision estimation and avoidance flightpath generation module.
During the flight tests, this system was successfully operated using different conflict scenarios with a "dummy" aircraft provided by ENAC, thus enabling Patroller to detect the risk of a collision and avoid it, without requiring an operator.
