Abstract Provision of GNSS Avionics Based Integrity Augmentation (ABIA) in Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV) Sense-and-Avoid (SAA) architectures has the potential to provide an integrity-augmented SAA solution suitable for cooperative and non-cooperative scenarios where GNSS is used as the primary source of navigation and/or surveillance data (e.g, employing ADS-B). In this paper, we evaluate the opportunities offered by this integration, proposing a novel architecture that maximizes the synergies between ABIA and SAA functionalities in UAV applications. The performance of this Integrity-Augmented SAA (IAS) architecture was evaluated by simulating manned/unmanned platforms with different dynamics in representative cooperative and non-cooperative scenarios. The numerical results demonstrate that the proposed IAS architecture is capable of performing high-integrity conflict detection and resolution when GNSS is used as the primary source of navigation and/or surveillance data.
