Article Headlines

  • Iris Automation announced the launch of Casia 360 – the first onboard detect-and-avoid (DAA) solution with a 360-degree radial field of view to enable commercial Beyond Visual Line of Sight (BVLOS) operations for UAS
  • Casia 360 detects other aircraft in all directions, uses computer-vision algorithms to classify them, makes intelligent decisions about the threat they may pose to the drone, then triggers an alert to the pilot in command and automated maneuvers to safely avoid collisions
  • Casia is a combination of both hardware and software that is lightweight, low power and small in size. The low SWaP system is composed of two onboard controllers and five long-range optical cameras providing a 360-degree field of view. The software is packaged in a self-contained embedded supercomputer that works with the machine vision cameras onboard
  • The Casia technology has been extensively tested, with real-world test flights and mid-air collision scenarios flying various manned aircraft against UAS, over 12,000 real-world encounters and more than 50,000 encounters in simulation
  • Casia is currently being flown by dozens of customers, across 12 countries and holds BVLOS approvals from regulators in the U.S., South Africa, and Canada
