ANAHEIM, CA--(Marketwire -08/01/12)- Advanced Defense Technologies, Inc. (ADCF) announced today that the Company has entered into a joint venture agreement with AeroSpy, an Austria-based leading technology supplier in the field of navigation, motion tracking, and mobile robotics, to develop and commercialize the first fully certified Sense & Avoid System that allows the integration of mission-specific UAVs into civilian airspace.
As part of the joint venture, ADTI will combine its phased array antenna technology with AeroSpy's Sense and Avoid technology to form a significant global alliance. The goal of the project is to integrate the AeroSpy Sense and Avoid prototype and autopilot with ADTI's customized and enhanced UAV technology to demonstrate the system to different customers.
