Iris Automation, Inc. Launches Casia 360


(San Francisco, CA) Government aviation authorities or agencies, around the world, demand something from unmanned aircraft systems (U.A.S.).  What they commonly demand, is detect and avoid technology.  In fact, it is considered to be mandatory.  After the fact that, it is mandatory, has been established.  There are commonly consistent requirements.  For example, safe and effective detect and avoid (D.A.A.) technologies are necessary.  A second good example, drones will not be permitted to fly, beyond visual line of sight (B.V.L.O.S.).  Additionally, without properly mitigating the risk of collision with, manned aircraft.  Recently; Iris Automation, Inc. announced that, its business is centered on, onboard detect and avoid systems for drones.  Specifically, the aforementioned business revealed that, it has launched Casia 360.  The latter, is an onboard detect and avoid (D.A.A.) proprietary technology solution.  Additionally; it comes with a 360° radial field of view, which enables a commercial quality beyond visual line of sight (B.V.L.O.S.) for unmanned aircraft systems (U.A.S.).
            Unmanned aircraft systems, is another way of saying drones.  In other words, Iris Automation’s Casia 360 gives drones, an onboard detect and avoid capability.  However and returning to, government regulation of unmanned aircraft systems, the aforementioned are based on three ideas.  The ideas are reduce pilot error, reduce operational risk and reduce approval difficulty.  In reference to, reduce pilot error, the aforementioned idea is meant for drone pilots.  In fact, drone pilots are recognized as skilled aviators.  However, they do have difficulty seeing and avoiding other aircraft.  This is particularly true, when operating drones at an extended range.  In reference to, reduce operational risk, the aforementioned means the following.  What it means is that, without a pilot onboard, there is a low situational awareness.  Additionally, a low situational awareness has huge inherent risks.  Furthermore, extremely dangerous conflicts are possible.  In reference to; reduce approval difficulty, the aforementioned is intended to be used, when dealing with government authorities or agencies.  This usually occurs, when a drone hasn’t been able to show that, it can mitigate operational risks. 
            Returning to; Iris Automation’s Casia 360, the aforementioned proprietary technology solution, has been launched on a limited basis.  Due to the previously said, it is currently being used in the United States of America, South Africa and Canada.  For the limited initial launch, Casia 360, was extensively tested.  The tests included test flights, along with, mid-air collision scenarios.  Additionally, and as part of the tests, a manned aircraft was flown against a U.A.S.  More than 12,000 real world encounters, where conducted to be able to, properly conduct the tests.  More than 50,000 encounters, where conducted as part of a simulator to be able to, properly conduct the tests. 
            Continuing with; Casia 360, the aforementioned U.A.S. technology, is also a system.  This system sees and reacts, to the aviation environment, which is around the aircraft.  Additionally, the previously said detects aircraft in all directions, through, the use of computer vision algorithms.  The system, from this point, classifies the aircraft.  Then, Casia 360 makes an intelligent decision about, the threat the aircraft may pose.  The pilot of the drone or unmanned aircraft is alerted.  This action permits the pilot, to witness an automated maneuver, which will successfully avoid the incoming aircraft.  In order, to make the previously stated possible, Casia 360 is both hardware and software.  In person; Casia 360 is lightweight, operates at low power and is small in size.  The S.W.A.P. system is made up of two onboard controllers, along with, five long range optical video cameras.  The latter, is the source of the 360° field of view.  Finally, the software is inside a self-contained and embedded supercomputer.  The software also works with, the onboard machine vision video cameras.
            To end, Iris Automation, Inc. did release a press statement.  Alexander Harmsen is the Chief Executive Officer of Iris Automation, Inc.  Through a press statement, Mr. Harmsen said the following.  “Casia 360 allows a drone to have a complete sense of its surroundings so it can avoid potential collisions from any direction.  We developed this technology based on feedback from our customers and regulatory bodies around the world.  It enables drones to be used for an even greater range of long-distance use cases and saves money, increases safety and unlocks applications across multiple industries:  railway, energy sector, utility powerline inspections, package delivery, and life-saving search and rescue operations.”  As previously stated; Iris Automation, Inc. recently announced that, its business is centered on, onboard detect and avoid systems for drones.  Specifically, the aforementioned business revealed that, it has launched Casia 360.  The latter, is an onboard detect and avoid (D.A.A.) proprietary technology solution.  Additionally; it comes with a 360° radial field of view, which enables a commercial quality beyond visual line of sight (B.V.L.O.S.) for unmanned aircraft systems.  Lastly; and in other words, Iris Automation’s Casia 360 gives drones, an onboard detect and avoid capability.
