DVKUP - Collision avoidance systems for pilot assistance

The purpose of the DVKUP project is to develop, demonstrate and validate a collision avoidance system to assist pilots. The role of this collision avoidance system is to identify non-cooperative airborne objects (gliders, ultralights etc.) which cannot be detected by the collision avoidance systems currently on the market. This pilot assistance system will significantly increase safety in the public airspace, as these airborne objects are quickly registered and presented graphically to the pilot along with their trajectory.
