Aurora Flight Sciences and Socionext Develop Radar-Enabled Collision Protection Solution for Drones

Langen/Germany & Yokohama/Japan, 31. January, 2018--- Aurora Flight Sciences is collaborating with Socionext Inc., a top expert in radar sensor technology, to provide a patent-pending radar-enabled collision protection system for consumer drones.

The Radar Flight Control Module (RFCM) is comprised of a single-chip 24GHz radar with range measurement software. The radar responds acutely to its surroundings and can detect multiple objects, objects in open spaces, target distance and speed, and more. The RFCM provides distance, warning and braking signals to the flight controller through a simple interface, allowing for integration on a wide range of drone products. When installed, the RFCM acts to prevent head-on collisions with everyday obstacles in the drone’s path.
