Aurora Flight Sciences is a company that seeks to create advanced aircrafts by utilizing autonomous systems and composite manufacturing. The Aurora Centaur aircraft offers the option for piloted, remote, or hybrid operation which improves safety and control capabilities, which is strengthened further by the triplex and duplex redundancy in its critical flight systems. The Centaur also has a small footprint and boasts a low life-cycle cost while still providing a high quality of performance. This optional “pilot-in-the-loop” approach is ideal for controlled and uncontrolled airspace. Safety and redundancy are primary design considerations and UEI equipment is central to the unmanned operations. Learn more about how UEI supported Aurora here.
