Together with Asio technologies, Blue White Robotics successfully completed sUAS flight trials under GPS satellite interference and jamming.
The aircraft overcame GPS denied scenarios using a unique camera and image recognition system: NavGuard.
Using onboard image libraries as reference, the system was able to orient and navigate by matching them to a live video feed.
The navigation system was specifically designed for sUAS with size and power constraints in demanding tactical environments, where GNSS cannot be relied on.
The test flight was part of The Naama Indicative, a project to push the boundaries of adoption for UAS in urban environments, made possible by the Israeli Ministry of Transportation, Israel Innovation Authority and Civil Aviation Authority (CAAI).
