Collins Aerospace technology supports MQ-9B flight

2nd May 2019 - 10:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Collins Aerospace’s technology has supported the first end-to-end flight of General Atomics Aeronautical Systems’ (GA-ASI's) MQ-9B SkyGuardian Remotely Piloted Aircraft in civil airspace, the company announced on 29 April.

The flight, which took place at the Yuma Proving Grounds in Yuma, Arizona, in March, was completed using GA-ASI’s Certifiable Ground Control Station. The Collins Aerospace Pro Line Fusion integrated avionics system was used as part of the interface for the flight’s ground control station.

The integration of the FAA-certified Pro Line Fusion into UAS ground control stations helps to bring together a multitude of data inputs such as weather, airspace information, mission data, SAR pattern flight management and notice to airmen notifications, providing real-time mission optimisation and a common operating picture for the operator.
