BVLOS Operations with Continuous Airspace Data
To enable the continued growth of the UAS or drone market proliferation, the FAA has implemented an important regulatory condition that requires UAS aircraft to be instrumented with detected and avoid sensors for beyond visual line of site (BVLOS) operations. This government regulatory requirement helps to ensure safety with current FAA Part 107pilots by requiring drone operators to maintain visual line of sight at all times. Under Part 107, the operator is responsible for ensuring that their UAS does not collide with other aircraft or aerial objects.
Fortem SkyDome and TrueView satisfy regulatory detect and avoid requirements and make BVLOS operations a reality by providing real-time alerting, notification, and monitoring. Fortem's TrueView radar platform provisions surrounding airspace and flight corridors. With TrueView, UAS operators can perform BVLOS tasks while expanding the business model and use cases for UAS operators.
Fortem Solution Building Blocks
TrueView - The Most Compact, Long Range, Detect-and-Avoid Solution for Safe Drone Operations
Using AI-enabled algorithms, TrueView provides accurate real-time situational intelligence and awareness for safe autonomous unmanned aircraft operations. Fortem TrueView R20 weighs 1.5 lbs. and is a breakthrough technology, due to its small form factor, weight, power requirements and low cost.
Fortem’s Radar technology has been hardened over the past six years through rigorous testing with the US Department of Defense. TrueView extends this technology to detect potential air to air collisions and enables unmanned aircraft to safely navigate beyond visual line of sight (BVLOS) day or night and in clouds, fog, smog and in other challenging weather conditions.
DroneHunter - Safe Mitigation in All Environments
DroneHunter™ is the world’s first UAS perimeter intrusion detection and protection solution. DroneHunter uses AI-enabled algorithms and software to provide detection, monitoring and autonomous capture of rogue drones and UAS. Once captured, DroneHunter can be instructed to tether and return or to safely discard the captured drone at a safe zone or bomb-disposal container.
DroneHunter™ notifies all authorized personnel of potential aerial threats in real-time. The command ground station provides monitoring and manual intervention override options as needed to meet situational requirements.
SkyDome - Real-time UAS Intrusion Detection Solutions
SkyDome utilizes TrueView’s AI-enabled detection and classification technology to provide a complete view of local airspace.
Fortem’s SkyDome platform of AI-enabled airspace surveillance services offers an intrusion detection solution that can detect, classify, monitor and if necessary, provide physical remediation of malicious or uncooperative drones. SkyDome is a military proven solution, able to monitor and secure day or night, and in all weather conditions.
