Autonomous Piloting Systems for Aircraft of Today and Tomorrow

Founded in 2016, Daedalean is building autonomous piloting software systems for civil aircraft of today and advanced aerial mobility of tomorrow.

Safety requires it, Technology enables it, Economics makes it inevitable. Continuing a historical trend of growth in aviation, the dependency on human pilots will be reduced further and further. We develop the software for pilotless, safe, fast, quiet, clean and affordable air transportation. We partner with renowned avionics suppliers to provide a full range of systems and support.

We help you with robust, reliable and independent Navigation, Flight Guidance, Detect & Avoid and Autopilot solutions. Our focus is on developing the most advanced algorithms and software. We partner with some of the most renowned avionics suppliers to provide the best hardware and respective installation and maintenance.

Commercial Air Transport

Airliners’ crew reduction down to two pilots – around the ’70s – was driven by economic pressure and enabled by technical progress, automation, engine reliability, improved navigation, separation and guidance – together increasing safety while reducing workload. The time is here to go further in commercial air transport. Transferring today’s paradigms into tomorrow’s aircraft is the core of what we do.

Supporting the crew’s safety performance and workload with advanced pilot assistance systems (APAS), allowing Single-Pilot-Operations (SPO) in cruise and later from gate to gate where today two are needed, and full autonomy (FA) without any pilot requires replacing step by step all elements of pilot training and equipment. Functionality and performance will be expanded to meet all needs of commercial Single-Pilot-Operations and fully autonomous aircraft at the time aircraft OEMs and operators are ready for it.

General Aviation

Human pilots working with today’s aircraft avionics define the minimal benchmark. Transferring today’s paradigms into tomorrow’s aircraft while increasing safety by reducing the pilot’s workload is the core of our product strategy.

The time is here to go further with smaller aircraft and rotorcraft operated commercially or privately.

Supporting the crew’s safety performance and workload with advanced pilot assistance systems, allowing Single-Pilot-Operations where today two are needed, and full autonomy without any pilot where reasonable requires replacing step by step the elements of pilot training and equipment.

Urban Air Mobility – eVTOL and Aerial Mobility

Many advanced or urban aerial mobility or eVTOL systems are in development. They will make transportation faster with less noise and pollution, for local as well as regional commuting and cargo. Urban aerial mobility (UAM) will become a relevant player once safe, affordable and available. Safety, capacity (pilots, airspace, airports) and commercial viability require a scaling-up only possible with autonomous operations.

UAM will start with piloted operations, reduce pilot qualification needs and workload, then switch to full autonomy as soon as viable within a specific Operational Design Domain. Remote controlled civil aircraft will only be used for testing, in small areas, in segregated airspace, or for short flights.

Supporting the pilots’ safety, performance, and workload with advanced pilot assistance systems (APAS), and eventual full autonomy (FA) without any pilot requires replacing step by step all elements of pilot training and equipment. Functionality and performance will be expanded at lower SWaP-C to meet all needs at the time aircraft OEMs and operators are ready for it.

Unmanned Air Vehicles

The commercial use of larger UAV brings many benefits to society, from logistics, mapping, surveillance to inspection, remote sensing and communications. Its broad adoption is contingent on getting access to shared airspace and the provisioning of safe operations anytime and anywhere.

Products

  • Visual positioning – VPS is a self-contained, on-board vision-based position source that enables uninterrupted, reliable and redundant navigation for any aircraft, without the need for any infrastructure.
  • Visual traffic detection – Daedalean’s self-contained vision-based system detects, tracks and classifies various types of aircraft and drones without the need for additional infrastructure. It integrates into existing flight deck instruments as a pilot-aid.
  • Visual Landing Guidance – Daedalean’s safe landing guidance is a self-contained, on-board vision-based position and map source that enables choosing the best available landing spots.

Why Do We Need Autonomy in Aerospace?

There are three main problems that aerospace autonomy addresses: safety, capacity and economics. They apply differently to different market segments.
