WASHINGTON, Oct. 22, 2019 — (PRNewswire) —  Raytheon Company's (NYSE: RTN) Ground Based Detect and Avoid team received the Air Traffic Control Association's annual Team Award for outstanding achievement for its collaboration with the Air Force Research Laboratory, academic partners, and federal, state, and local government agencies to integrate drones safely into the National Airspace System.  

GBDAA SkyVision team accepts the ATCA Annual Team Award for Outstanding Achievement.

Contracted by the U.S. Air Force through the Department of Transportation's Volpe Center, GBDAA SkyVision, the only mobile beyond visual line-of-sight system certified by the Federal Aviation Administration to provide drone operators with real-time aircraft display data, satisfying a key "see and avoid" requirement.

"The GBDAA SkyVision team overcame numerous technical challenges in establishing the Unmanned Aircraft Systems test site in Ohio earlier this year," said Matt Gilligan, vice president of Raytheon Intelligence, Information and Services. "Our National Airspace System can now support the safe integration of drones as a result of their exemplary collaboration."

The system is now operational in Ohio at the Springfield-Beckley Municipal Airport and will be used to test the safety and efficiency of small drone operations in the 200-square-mile drone test range.

"Much like the early days of manned flight, I think we are in a 'golden age' of rapid technological advancement, which today supports amazing new capabilities for unmanned aircraft systems," said Art Huber, Air Force Research Lab deputy director of operations. "In this vein, we see the SkyVision system as a remarkable achievement on the road to full integration of remotely piloted aircraft in the National Airspace System."

The announcement was made during the 64th annual ATCA conference and exposition in Washington, D.C., Oct. 21-23.
