See & Avoid Display for PIC

The UAS-C securely integrates with existing ATC Surveillance Systems to support ALL UAV operations flying Beyond Visual Line of Sight (BVLOS) including flying in or through Controlled airspace regardless of size or altitude. The UAS-C has addressed the major surveillance challenges flying BVLOS and/or in controlled airspace creating a ubiquitous surveillance picture for critical operations in controlled airspace. UAV Tracking: Tracking of UAV‘s does not rely on Radar or ADS-B. By connecting to the UAS Ground Control System (GCS), Sunhillo’s UAS-Connector (UAS-C) converts the positional data that is already being sent from the UAS to the GCS into a radar or ADS-B message using Sunhillo’s proprietary software with no equipment required on the aircraft. This message can then be sent to ATC or a local command center and displayed with other radar and ADS-B targets for situational awareness. The UAS-C can be used remotely via LTE or directly connected via Ethernet. Situational Awareness:

UAS-C System Components

UAS-C Gateway

Utilizes Sunhillo’s ATC-grade Brigantine SGP platform to handle an operation or complete region of airspace Acts as the conduit to provide updated aircraft positions of all participating UAS-C units and an operational command center Receives the ADS-B or optional Radar feeds and processes them to the Surveillance Monitoring System (SMS) display Returns the fused surveillance data to the PIC for see & avoid
