Evolve Dynamics has performed its first fully autonomous drone landing in partnership with Cambridge Sensoriis.

Cambridge Sensoriis’ ARC (Active Radar Cooperating) radar sensor devices have been integrated with Evolve Dynamics’ Sky Mantis UAV to achieve autonomous landing, loitering and zonal position hold without the use of any other sensors.

The partnership sees Cambridge Sensoriis’ ground-based radar beacons communicating with a Sensoriis airside radar mounted in the Sky Mantis aircraft, which passes precision positioning data to the autopilot.
