The ability to fly an unmanned aircraft regularly and routinely for commercial or civilian applications, in non-segregated, airspace requires a sense and avoid capability. The Mobile aircraft Tracking System (MATS) is a Ground-Based Sense And Avoid (GBSAA) system. The MATS consists of a primary radar, an ADS-B receiver and a transponder interrogator. The Smart Skies project provided an opportunity to test the performance of the MATS using a specially equipped Cessna 172R. This aircraft was also… Expand
