9th August 2012 - 16:00 GMT | by Beth Stevenson in Las Vegas


The FAA has claimed that a decision on the six test sites for UAS that is due to be established in an effort to open up the national airspace could be made 'any day now'.

Jim Williams, executive manager at the FAA's UAS Integration Office, told AUVSI's Unmanned Systems North America on 8 August that it is making 'a lot of progress'.

'Now it's in the executive review in the highest level of the FAA,' Williams explained. 'We could release it any day now. We're working hard to get it [the test site decision] out as soon as possible.'
