2021-2023	[REDACTED]	R&D Engineer and Project lead
Platform To Fly Any Drone Over Cellular Networks (indropilot)
Successfully designed and developed the next-generation platform, InDroPilot, from scratch. This platform enables drones to fly, takeoff/land, and command & control over both commercial and private 5G/LTE cellular networks, offering low latency operation and real-time video streaming, either autonomously or manually with a joystick. The hardware design includes fault tolerance, safety systems, and redundant communications, making it compatible with several ground stations over MAVLINK protocol among others. It also features an encrypted fast tunnel and robust cloud integrations with AWS/Azure. The system has been field-tested in several missions, including one where an operator in Australia successfully operated a drone located in Canada in real-time with approximately 50ms latency. InDroPilot is designed for extensibility, ready to accommodate add-ons for UAV+UGV cross-operation, AI/ML applications, and even drone swarm operations.

BVLOS Drone Operated Over 5G/Cellular Network With Realtime 4K Video Stream & Command/Control
- Successfully led and delivered Project NERDs, which involved building and developing a state-of-the-art 5G/LTE-enabled heavy-lift RPAS/Drone for Beyond Visual Line of Sight (BVLOS) operations. This drone is capable of streaming real-time 4K video with sub-50ms latency and includes sensors for FPV/RTK for both manual and autonomous operations. The drone was successfully flown over Ericsson's private 5G network (ENCQOR) and ROGERS' commercial network.
- Developed a novel collision avoidance system that integrates with the RPAS/Drone flight controller for real-time operations, with the ability to communicate bi-directionally with aircraft in the vicinity directly from the drone.
- Created a Forward Error Correction (FEC) algorithm to stream raw 4K video (from a Sony DSLR payload) in real-time with approximately 50ms latency and Full HD cameras to deliver crystal clear footage.
