The U.S. Air Force is looking to add a common-airborne sense and avoid technology into unmanned aerial vehicles that are used for intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance missions.

Proposed technologies are being mandated to fulfill Federal Aviation Administration requirements and be able to help vehicles perform integrated flight within the National Airspace System, the service said in a Sept. 20 request for information.

Under the C-ABSAA program, vendors are being asked to develop a system that is platform- and sensor-agnostic and built in an open systems architecture so it can be used across the Defense Department.

Proposals are due by Oct. 25 to the Air Force Materiel Command at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base.
