URSA’s Airspace Awareness Platform + NMAC (AAP-NMAC) was developed to support FAA research into unmanned UAV activity in the low altitude National Airspace. Led by Associate Professor Ryan Wallace of Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University, the ASSURE A50 project used AAP-NMAC to produce the first of three annual reports for the FAA on this topic. 
AAP-NMAC uses what is commonly known as counter UAS (CUAS) data as the primary source for UAV behavior and metadata. URSA’s vendor and source agnostic ability to unlock valuable insights from often expensive CUAS data is unique in the industry and puts us on the leading edge of efforts to focus on broader airspace awareness issues.
