This week's Nature includes an article on a recent UAV demonstration event called "Aviation of the Future Days" in which an NMSU/NASA UAV called Proteus demonstrated the ability to fly safely in civilian airspace. Both slow moving commercial aircraft and high-speed military jets were flown around and even straight at the UAV during the event to demonstrate its sensor and avoidance technology. Another article about the event may be found at the NMSU UAV web site.
