This is great news for the sUAS Remote Pilots flying in this controlled airspace.
All new DJI drone models released after January 1, 2020 that weigh more than 250 grams will include AirSense technology, which receives ADS-B signals from nearby airplanes and helicopters and warns drone pilots if they appear to be on a collision course. This will be the largest single deployment of ADS-B collision awareness technology to date, and sets a new standard by putting professional-grade aviation safety technology in drones available to everyone.
If you fly an ADS-B (In) equipped DJI drone and utilize compliant software, you will be able to take advantage of this trending technology.
So what about non-DJI drones and older models of DJI drones that do not have the ADS-B (In) or if you use third party apps that do not support ADS-B?
There is an inexpensive and easy solution for non-ADS-B (In) equipped drones and third party apps.
Below is an ground support console prototype that I designed for use on my daily flights to assist me to maintain situational awareness when flying in congested airspace. This prototype is being tested thoroughly to develop a final version.
This design and the components (Mini-iPad app, ADS-B [In] and iPhone) that make up the console will be featured in a new book that is being developed.
