R&D Activities

R&D of flight control function to achieve long distances on a non-consolidated basis (for remote islands)

Participants SUBARU CORPORATION/Japan Radio Co., Ltd./Autonomous Control Systems Laboratory Ltd./Nippon Avionics Co., Ltd./Magellan Systems Japan, Inc
Contract Type Entrustment


・ A collision avoidance system and a quasi-zenith satellite system of miniaturization and low power consumption application are mounted on a small unmanned aircraft, and collision avoidance is possible at a relative speed of 200km/h with an anti-manned aircraft is verified by flight tests.

・ Conduct verification tests to verify the fabrication and connectivity of operation control devices for remote islands.



In order to realize security and reliable autonomous flight outside the eyes, the "miniaturization and low power consumption of collision avoidance system" and "miniaturization and low power consumption of quasi-zenith satellite system" developed in the "development of collision avoidance technology for unmanned aircraft" will be mounted on small unmanned aircrafts, and its effectiveness will be evaluated by flight test, and the flight control function assuming the case in which long-distance flight is conducted independently like the distribution between isolated islands will be researched and developed.


Relevant Achievement

・ Development of traffic management system and collision avoidance technology for unmanned aircrafts
Development of autonomous dynamic rerouting technology for unmanned aircraft using quasi-zenith satellite system
