PMD1-LPCAD: FLYING LABORATORY
The project is a collaboration between ARA Robotics, Bombardier, and CMC Electronics. It targets two main objectives:
To develop and demonstrate technologies for autonomous or single pilot vehicles, in particular for autopilot and beyond the visual horizon navigation;
Develop the use of scale flying models as a validation tool for new technologies for new aircraft, notably for GHG emission reduction. This approach will reduce the cost of testing these new technologies and thus accelerate their adoption.
