NASA develops ‘ATC’ for unmanned aircraft




NASA is working on software to realize. An air traffic control for unmanned aircraft The space agency hopes to be able to safely guide. Drones inhabited areas in the long term

The software that NASA is working on is designed for unmanned aircraft flying up to 150 meters high, so writes The New York Times. The system should be able to guide drones, even though they fly in close proximity. Safely through the skies without direct human intervention In addition, the system also checks the weather. In particular, strong wind has a negative impact on the relatively light drones.

NASA wants to build the systems that the traffic control system ensures that drones can avoid obstacles. Even “no-fly zones’ such as are to be avoided. Nearby airports

It is still unclear how far NASA is using the software and how is going to be. Communicated with future drones At present in the United States are not allowed to fly drones for commercial gain though companies like Google and Amazon fully engaged in the development of unmanned aircraft, including for the delivery of packets.
