AvStrategies Design Competes In MITRE Challenge

Posted By on Feb 3, 2016 |


The MITRE Corporation is a not-for-profit company that operates multiple federally funded research and development centers.  They provide innovative, practical solutions for some of our nation’s most critical challenges in defense and intelligence, aviation, civil systems, homeland security, the judiciary, healthcare, and cybersecurity.

The MITRE Countering UAS Challenge invites outside participants to identify solutions that are specifically able to: 1) detect small UAS during flight and determine which are threats based on a geographic location and flight trajectory, and 2) interdict small UAS that are perceived as threats by forcing them to be recovered in a safe area with any payload still intact.

AvStrategies developed and designed a concept to solve this national problem and submitted a white paper for evaluation.
