This paper presents an electro-optical (EO) sense-and-avoid system onboard a Cessna host aircraft. We present the closed-loop integration with the onboard aircraft autopilot as well as the system's approach to target detection and avoidance control. The results demonstrate the ability of system to automatically detect and avoid potential conflicting aircraft.
