ANRA UTM powers NASA TCL4 campaigns in Nevada and Texas

Panorama of Las Vegas, Nevada, USA

On 15 February 2019, the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) selected two organizations to host the final phase of its four-year series of increasingly complicated technical demonstrations involving small Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS), commonly known as drones.

The Nevada Institute for Autonomous Systems in Las Vegas and the Lone Star UAS Center of Excellence & Innovation in Corpus Christi, Texas, will host demonstrations to confirm NASA’s UAS Traffic Management (UTM) system can safely and effectively manage drone traffic in an urban area. The drone flights will take place in and around downtown Reno, Nevada between March and June, and Corpus Christi during July and August.

“ANRA Technologies is proud to be a part of these initiatives and our DroneUSS™ UTM platform will be a key part of both these demonstrations at both these initiatives”. said Amit Ganjoo, CEO ANRA Technologies

“This phase represents the most complicated demonstration of advanced UAS operating in a demanding urban environment that will have been tested to date,” said Ronald Johnson, NASA’s UTM project manager. “We are pleased at the plans by our partners to conduct flight tests in a true urban environment with the support of the City of Reno and the City of Corpus Christi.”

With these demonstrations, NASA and its partners including the Federal Aviation Administration, aim to help the commercial drone industry understand the challenges posed by flying in an urban environment. Results of the flight demonstrations also will help inform future rules, policies and traffic management procedures for operating drones safely over populated areas.

PERTH, AUSTRALIA: Orbital Corporation Ltd (‘Orbital UAV’, ‘the Company’) was delighted to welcome The Honourable Kim Beazley AC, Governor of Western Australia to its Perth headquarters, as the Company continues to build its international business delivering world-class propulsion systems to the tactical unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) market.

Governor Beazley – who this month celebrates his first anniversary in the role – has identified the defence industry, defence technologies and the defence of Western Australia as one of his key areas of strategic interest during his tenure as Governor of WA.

“I was delighted to join Orbital UAV and gain a better understanding of the exciting work they are doing in the global UAV sector from here in Perth,” said Governor Beazley.

“I have been aware of the Company for many years and it is a testament to their technical capabilities and an international reputation that they are today supplying some of the world’s leading tactical UAV manufacturers with their unique propulsion systems and associated technologies,” he said.

Orbital UAV is currently focused on supplying key customer Insitu Inc. – a wholly owned subsidiary of The Boeing Company – with multiple propulsion systems and services that will be applied across Insitu’s entire range of unmanned aircraft system (UAS) platforms.

his work forms part of a five-year Long Term Agreement signed in 2018 and worth between A$120-A$350 million.

“During his distinguished political career, Governor Beazley has had firsthand experience of the defence sector and its significance in Australia,” said Todd Alder, Managing Director and CEO of Orbital UAV.

“As state and federal governments continue to drive the strategic importance of increasing Australia’s defence capabilities, we were delighted to be able to demonstrate to the Governor Orbital UAV’s unique offering and highlight the role we are playing in the rapidly growing and evolving UAV market,” he said.

The Australian Defence Force continues to develop its UAS capabilities with initiatives such as the Navy’s commissioning of the 822X Squadron to operate UAS platforms, and the recent launch of the Boeing Airpower Teaming System – designed for global defence customers by Boeing Australia.

“As an Australian-based SME operating on a global level, we are excited by the significant opportunities in this area of the defence sector and we look forward to continuing to support the push to develop Australia’s defence capabilities,” said Mr Alder.
