Vision based detect and avoid finally cracked?

I 'm sorry if this has been posted before, I couldn't find another reference to it on the site.

 

Is this the most exciting breakthrough in our lifetimes or have I missed something? It looks like the people at ARCAA have cracked the most horrible sensing problem ever. Is this the end of the line for lasers, sonars and other time-of-flight based sensors?

    This sort of thing was demoed in the UK in 2010 to go along with a trial where manned aircraft tried to hit each other.
    • The latest I could find is this one from 2012 which refers to the ASTREA project.

      Doesn't clarify if they are using vision. Other projects like the pretty amazing Delft flapping drone are using twin cameras, which, I believe, is not too good for long range. Is this not also the problem for time-of-flight depth cams (Kinect style)? As far as I 'm aware, at long range, the only thing that works (except of course for radar) is LIDAR, which is crazy expensive and heavy. Have I got that wrong?
