Rockwell Collins teams with NASA on UAS Data Link for UAS National Airspace Integration

Rockwell Collins is collaborating with the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) to develop an unmanned aircraft system (UAS) control and non-payload communications (CNPC) data link that will eventually enable unmanned aircraft to safely operate in the national airspace.

As a team member in the three-year NASA UAS Communications Research Sub-Project, Rockwell Collins will work closely with NASA engineers and subject matter experts to define the waveform for the CNPC data link.

The results of this collaboration will help industry and the Federal Aviation Administration develop the appropriate set of rules and requirements for reliable unmanned flight operations in the national airspace system.
