News Release: The world's first detection performance test of collision avoidance system mounted on unmanned aircraft

Please check the video of the collision avoidance system's detection performance test. (Japanese only)


This test is a simulated collision avoidance test in which a mid-sized unmanned aircraft flies around a manned helicopter (airborne) by following a route designed in advance. The unmanned aircraft was equipped with various sensors and a receiver compatible with the Quasi-Zenith Satellite System, and we confirmed the operation of the collision avoidance system, such as whether it could properly detect the object (manned helicopter) during flight.
