Smaller aircraft, such as medical or package delivery drones, might not have payload budget for large onboard sensors. Remote ID will provide awareness of cooperative UAVs in the airspace, but an additional solution is needed to provide full situational awareness of uncooperative aircraft in the airspace.
For dense flight areas, such as cities, corridors, and drone ports, a network of ground-based sensors generating rich airspace situational awareness data benefits all fliers and has substantial cost advantages over equipping sUAS with multiple onboard sensors. Radar data is easily consumed by UAS Service Suppliers (USS) and integrated with UTM data feeds for managed airspace that accelerates the business of airborne machines.
