On Thursday, Sept. 20, there will be a demonstration of on-board technologies designed to help integrate remotely-piloted aircraft into the national air transportation system at the Grand Forks International Airport in North Dakota. The research flight test will feature a specially equipped NASA Langley Research Center Cirrus SR22 that will serve as a surrogate unmanned aircraft system (UAS). The surrogate UAS will automatically maneuver using Automatic Dependent Surveillance Broadcast (ADS-B) data and software algorithms developed by The MITRE Corp. and the University of North Dakota. A UND Cessna 206 will act as an intruder aircraft.
