Airborne-Unmanned 11.06.18: Autonomous Sikorsky, Trusted Operator, Northwest UAV

Also: Drones Deliver Vaccines, High-Resolution Forecasts, Microsoft Azure, Propeller Aero And DJI

U.S. Army pilots exercised supervised autonomy to direct an optionally-piloted helicopter (OPV) through a series of missions to demonstrate technology developed by Lockheed Martin company Sikorsky and DARPA.

The series of flights marked the first time that non-Sikorsky pilots operated the Sikorsky Autonomy Research Aircraft (SARA), a modified S-76B commercial helicopter, as an OPV aircraft. Sikorsky is developing autonomous and optionally-piloted technology that will ultimately decrease instances of the number one cause of helicopter crashes: Controlled Flight Into Terrain (CFIT). AUVSI has launched the Trusted Operator Program (TOP), a new certification program available to remote pilots and UAS training organizations. Through TOP, operators and organizations can distinguish themselves in a growing marketplace by holding themselves to a higher standard of safety and professionalism. UAV propulsion manufacturer Northwest UAV (NWUAV) has successfully completed the first phase towards FAA 14 CFR Part 21 Type Certification in support of the NW44 type certification program. Members of the FAA team, which comprised FAA Flight Standards (AC-AW), AIR UAS Programs and Procedures Division, AIR Policy & Innovation Division and the Engine Directorate, came together on October 16th and 17th at NWUAV headquarters in McMinnville, Oregon for the first gated certification process in collaboration with the FAA. All this -- and MORE in today's episode of Airborne-Unmanned!!!
