Drone flight campaigns were conducted at the NLR Drone Centre for test and demonstration of on-board Detect And Avoid (DAA) systems, including drone encounters. In addition, the transponder interrogator and localisation solution were integrated to form the Cooperative Traffic Sensor (CTS), by NLR and CTG. Based on this set-up the CTS was validated to showcase a secure integration of the UASs in common airspace. The CTS was tested and verified on the ground with a flying intruder equipped with a Mode S transponder, by NLR. Besides this integration scenario, a new DAA method for safe navigation of small-sized drones within an airspace based on received azimuth, elevation, and altitude information was proposed by TU Delft and its performance was validated by simulation experiments. Additionally, the transformation of the situation awareness data from the DAA system into a suitable format in preparation for transmission to ground, other drones, and/or U-space systems was validated by ANYWI.
