Safe, Secure, Robust UAS Platform

Dr. Bo Liu from the University of IL has developed a software platform for Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS- aka drones) that facilitates safe and efficient recovery from both physical and software attacks. This software uses multi-core processing power to ensure that the drone can respond to any threat in real-time while remaining stable. This platform is among the first to address both issues of cyber-security and environmental threats to drones, combining previously established technologies into one consistent system.
