[…American Aerospace Technology Inc’s AiRanger™ (formerly the Resolute Eagle) unmanned aircraft system (UAS/drone) successfully completed a demonstration flight on February 25 as part of NASA’s Systems Integration and Operationalization (SIO) activities. The objective of the AiRanger demonstration was to tackle key challenges to enable routine commercial UAS operations in the National Air System (NAS), including development, integration, and certification of UAS and the technologies required for safe operation with manned and unmanned aircraft traffic in the NAS. Target applications are focused on critical infrastructure missions including beyond visual line-of-sight (BVLOS) patrols over pipelines, rail, road, and agricultural environments using multispectral sensors with integrated machine learning and communications for real-time delivery of threats to damage prevention specialists via a cloud-based platform. The operation was conducted in support of the SIO program’s goal to “work toward commercial UAS operations in the NAS…”]
