Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS)

In order to enable the future of aviation in low altitude Beyond Visual Line of Sight (BVLOS) UAS operations, regional and large scale aircraft surveillance solutions that integrate a mix of surveillance technologies such as primary radar, Automatic Dependent Surveillance – Broadcast (ADS-B) and LTE are required for UAS Sense and Avoid (SAA) solutions. Harris provides integration services, display systems and surveillance sensors for such BVLOS infrastructure, ensuring safe UAS integration into the National Airspace System (NAS).

Integrated Surveillance Solutions for UAS: Symphony RangeVue®

RangeVue is the first airspace situational-awareness tool designed specifically for test-range operations for UAS. Part of the Symphony® suite of applications, RangeVue puts real-time NextGen surveillance data, obstacle data, flexible background maps and weather information in the hands of the people who are actually in the field testing and validating UAS missions.

NextGen Data

Nationwide ADS-B ground station deployment by Harris serves as the cornerstone of the FAA's NextGen satellite-based surveillance initiative to fundamentally improve the quality, accuracy and reliability of flight tracking data throughout the entire NAS.

ADS-B Xtend™

The ADS-B Xtend™ dual-band ADS-B receivers and network augment the existing NextGen Data commercial offering from Harris, which is a fusion of all FAA system derived aircraft surveillance data, including over 650+ ADS-B ground stations and 425+ FAA radar systems to create the largest air traffic control surveillance data network in the world. By strategically deploying ADS-B Xtends, existing gaps in ADS-B coverage are closed, ensuring low altitude surveillance of ADS-B equipped aircraft for UAS asset tracking and SAA systems.
