NASA: NASA’s Unmanned Ikhana Flies in National Airspace Without Chase Plane(NASA的无人驾驶飞行器Ikhana在没有追逐飞机的情况下在美国领空飞行)

NASA’s Ikhana aircraft, based at the agency’s Armstrong Flight Research Center in Edwards, California, takes off on June 12, 2018, for the agency’s first large-scale, remotely-piloted aircraft flight in the national airspace without a safety chase aircraft. The successful flight moved the United States one step closer to normalizing unmanned aircraft operations in the airspace used by commercial and private pilots.

NASA’s Ikhana aircraft, based at the agency’s Armstrong Flight Research Center in Edwards, California, takes off on June 12, 2018, for the agency’s first large-scale, remotely-piloted aircraft flight in the national airspace without a safety chase aircraft.

NASA位于加利福尼亚州爱德华兹空军基地的阿姆斯特朗飞行器研究中心的Ikhana飞行器于2018年06月12日起飞,这是该机构首次在没有安全追逐飞机的情况下,在(美国)国家领空对Ikhana进行大规模的远程遥控飞行.这次成功的飞行使得美国离在商业和私人飞行员飞行的空域开展无人驾驶飞机的飞行操作又近了一步.

 

Flying these large remotely-piloted aircraft over the United States opens the doors to all types of services, from monitoring and fighting forest fires, to providing new emergency search and rescue operations. The technology in this aircraft could, at some point, be scaled down for use in other general aviation aircraft.

这些在美国上空飞行的无人驾驶飞机为各种类型的服务打开了大门,例如检测和扑灭森林火灾,或者为新的突发的搜索和救援行动提供支援.在某种程度上,这架飞机上的技术将会被精简并应用于其他专用的航空飞行器.
