ABU DHABI, UAE – Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Center, Canada Pavilion stand 11-C11 – Iris Automation is showcasing its innovative Detect-and-Avoid (DAA) Casia system with partner and unmanned aircraft systems (UAS) technologies leader Avidrone Aerospace at this week’s IDEX exhibition.
Avidrone Aerospace manufactures the world’s only commercialized tandem rotor, electric powered, fully automated helicopter UAV system. Specializing in fully automated, heavy payload drones for cargo delivery, medical resupply, and airborne sensors, the Avidrone 210TL tandem rotor lifts payloads and performs cargo deliveries up to 35lbs (16kg). The acoustically quiet VTOL aircraft is capable of complete Beyond Visual Line of Sight (BVLOS) operations without a human pilot required.
Iris Automation is a computer vision technology company pioneering the development of advanced detection systems used to help provide DAA capabilities that enable safe drone operations including scalable Beyond Visual Line of Sight (BVLOS) missions. Casia technology combines software and hardware onboard the UAS which detects other aircraft, classifies them, makes intelligent decisions about the threat they pose, and then triggers an alert to the remote pilot while automating maneuvers to safely avoid collisions.
IDEX (www.idexuae.ae) is the only international defense exhibition and conference in the MENA region demonstrating the latest technology across land, sea and air sectors of defense. IDEX takes place biennially at the Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Centre (ADNEC), which is centrally located in Abu Dhabi, the capital of the United Arab Emirates.
