Reliable Robotics and Daedalean Reveal Partnership

Reliable Robotics and Daedalean Reveal Partnership to Develop Advanced Avionics Systems for Safer Operation of Commercial Aircraft

Reliable Robotics, a leader in autonomous aircraft system development, and Daedalean, a leader in machine learning for safety critical avionics, today revealed their partnership to build advanced navigation and situational awareness (SA) systems for commercial aircraft operations. The proprietary solution enables onboard pilots and remote pilots to make faster, better informed decisions based on the advanced sensors provided by the system.

Founder and CEO of Daedalean, Dr. Luuk van Dijk, said:

“Reliable Robotics has the most credible system for remote piloted operations with immediate applications for cargo operators. Our team has developed advanced machine learning that can adapt to the inherent uncertainties in airspace and increasing levels of onboard autonomy. Bringing our core competencies together was a logical next step to jointly develop a solution set that makes aircraft safer.”

During their most recent flight tests last month, Reliable Robotics demonstrated pioneering capabilities of their systems by remotely piloting a Cessna 208 Caravan from a control center in their headquarters over 50 miles away. In 2019, the company made aviation history operating a remotely piloted Cessna 172 Skyhawk over a populated region with no one on board, and subsequently demonstrated fully automated landing of the larger Cessna 208 in 2020 on the third day of flight testing.

Advanced navigation and SA systems will reduce pilot workload.

Daedalean has developed unrivaled machine learning applications based on comprehensive situational awareness that meet and surpass aviation safety level standards defined by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and the European Union Aviation Safety Agency (EASA).

Their work with EASA examining high performance machine learning algorithms for safety-critical applications resulted in the joint publishing of Concepts of Design Assurance for Neural Networks.

Co-founder and CEO of Reliable Robotics, Robert Rose, said:

“Both companies have been built on the principle that certification is paramount from day one. Daedalean is the recognized leader when it comes to developing machine learning systems within the required regulatory framework. This is not a domain where you build something first and then figure out how to certify it later.”

Advanced navigation and SA systems will reduce pilot workload, are an enabling technology for many types of remote piloting and provide a clear enhancement beyond existing safety margins. Reliable Robotics and Daedalean are committed to deploying this technology in an incremental manner to enable safer flight operations globally.
