Today’s digital sky represents a wide range of technologies aimed at ensuring flight safety. This issue is of particular relevance in the context of the implementation of unmanned aircraft systems (UAS).
Russia is at the forefront of technological developments for world civil aviation. In the early 2000s, the first domestic multi-position integrated surveillance systems (Multilateration systems — MLAT/WAM) and ADS-B 1090ES appeared in the country. The introduction of systems at Russian airports has become an important stage in the digital transformation of the Russian sky.
In 2010, the BPN team begins to comprehensively promote Russian technologies in the field of air navigation on the world market. Thanks to the efforts of the agency’s experts, they learned about domestic innovations in the field of air navigation in Latin America, Eastern Europe, Asia and the CIS countries.
Today, based on technologies originally intended for monitoring the flights of manned aircraft, Russian engineers are developing proposals to ensure safe drone flights. As conceived by domestic developers, the safe stay of commercial aircraft and UAVs in the sky can be ensured thanks to a system based on the MLAT/WAM and ADS-B technologies.
