AES will optimize your Unmanned Systems
AES has been awarded 3 contracts by Kaman Aerospace to convert piloted helicopters to Optionally Piloted Vehicle (OPV) and integrate & test an unmanned avionics suite for the U.S. Navy (NAVAIR)and the U.S. Marine Corps for testing and demonstration at Ft. Pickett, VA in 2021. AES is awarded a similar contract for Commercial Aviation.
From Manned to OPV
Install avionics suite into a USMC aircraft to convert from manned aircraft to Optionally Piloted Vehicle (OPV)
Obstacle Avoidance System
Integrate an autonomous ground-based obstacle avoidance system into the commercial unmanned KMAX System.
UAV uses a scanning LIDAR to map an area on the ground around the Unmanned KMAX, identify obstacles, and provide command inputs into the UFCS to avoid such obstacles.
Manned, UAS, OPV
The core of our approach includes: Design and Develop, Integrate and Test Unmanned Aerial Systems
