Independent and Configurable Architecture for Reliable Operations of Unmanned Systems (ICAROUS) is a software architecture that enables the robust integration of mission specific software modules and highly assured core software modules for building safety-centric autonomous unmanned aircraft applications. The set of core software modules include formally verified algorithms that
ICAROUS is available under NASA's Open Source Agreement from GitHub.
ICAROUS won 2nd place at the XCELLENCE Awards by the Association for Unmanned Vehicles Systems International (AUVSI) in the category of Detect and Avoid solutions. The AUVSI XCELLENCE Awards honor innovators in the unmanned systems industry, including individuals and organizations, with a demonstrated commitment to advancing technology, leading and promoting safe operations, and developing programs that use unmanned systems to improve the human condition.
