Press Releases

Cybernet Systems Corporation has completed a contract to support the National Air and Space Administration (NASA) and the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) in their requirement to increase the safety of unmanned aircraft systems (UAS) in the United States airspace. The FAA has made new rules that restrict small consumer and commercial UAS from operating beyond line of sight and over 500 feet in altitude, but present day UAS controllers do not enforce these rules in hardware, and manual pilots cannot assure compliance with present day small UAS controls. Furthermore, while many UAS have GPS awareness, they have virtually no awareness of potential collision events.

For this effort, Cybernet has developed and demonstrated a collision safe and FAA rules enforcing UAS controller technology. "Small outdoor UAVs for surveillance, small payload transport, and other applications are readily available in the commercial market and are remaking the lower altitude airspace. These units navigate through direct teleoperation within line of sight of the operator and controller, and some units also include GPS navigation so that they can accurately station-keep or move to a predetermined location and altitude. The missing technology for this kind of autonomous operation is obstacle detection and avoidance, integrated with controls in a low size, weight, power, and cost (SWaP-C) form factor," said Charles J. Cohen, Cybernet's Chief Technology Officer.

Cybernet Systems Corporation will be exhibiting at the Navy's 2017 Forum for SBIR/STTR Transision (FST) conference on April 3-5, 2017, at the Gaylord National Resort & Convention Center, National Harbor, Maryland. This forum connects Small Business Innovative Research (SBIR) funded technologies with warfighters, government acquisition programs and personnel, large commercial primes, system integrators, and other potential partners and collaborators. 

Cybernet will be exhibiting its Interactive Instructor for Shipboard Technicians, a Phase II SBIR program under NAVSEA. The Interactive Instructor is an intelligent information repository software tool for shipboard technicians, which automates complex troubleshooting of maintenance and operations of naval electronics. The Interactive Instructor provides technical support, expert knowledge, and predictive analysis to maintainers. Cybernet Systems Corporation is an Ann Arbor based research and development company focused on creating and commercializing innovative, high quality, leading-edge solutions in the areas of Human-Computer Interaction, Robotics, Computer Vision Systems, Artificial Intelligence, Cyber Security, and Automation. The Interactive Instructor improves system up time, and reduces maintenance expense and time by eliminating the "trial and error" replacement of parts, many of which are good. Initial platforms targeted for technology transition include the AEGIS Combat System.

"The benefits to the Navy are the reduction of maintenance time from fault to problem diagnosis and resolution, reduction of the access time for maintenance produces, and the reduction of the number of Distance Support requests," said, Charles J. Cohen, Chief Technology Officer of Cybernet. "We have a strong desire to partner with developers of shipboard systems that require expert maintenance and look forward to meeting military and corporate representatives at this exciting forum."
