4. High-Speed, Vertical-Lift X-Plane Enters Preliminary Design Phase

Aurora Flight Sciences has completed the conceptual design review for a game-changing, high-speed, vertical lift X-plane and will continue development of a preliminary design review. 

The aircraft is being developed for a Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) program called Speed and Runway Independent Technologies (SPRINT), which “aims to design, build, and fly an X-plane to demonstrate the key technologies and integrated concepts that enable a transformational combination of aircraft speed and runway independence.”

5. Echodyne Radar Integrated into BVLOS UAS

Echodyne’s EchoFlight radar has been integrated into the American Aerospace Technologies, Inc. (AATI) AiRanger aircraft.

EchoFlight radar is integrated into a pod on each wing of the AiRanger aircraft, providing the necessary visibility to meet minimum operational performance standards (MOPS). The detection and tracking ranges provided by EchoFlight provide the DAA system with sufficient time and information to take avoidance measures and maintain operational safety.
