22-May-14 RUASRT to develop prototype UAS Safety Assurance System. Working in collaboration with Flight Data Systems and its research division UAV Australia, the RUASRT is undertaking the engineering analysis, research, preliminary design and testing of a prototype avionics product that has the potential to enhance the safety of unmanned aircraft operations. The final system performs a number of safety functions independent of existing avionics. The end product will be designed to a pre-defined assurance level (software and hardware standards).
The project is jointly funded by Flight Data Systems, RMIT and a Victoria State Government Business Research and Development – Innovation Voucher Grant.
