FAA unveils inaugural UAS roadmap

8th November 2013 - 13:12 GMT | by Beth Stevenson in London


The FAA has released its first UAS roadmap aimed at facilitating and guiding the integration of civil platforms into the national airspace system (NAS).

The ‘Integration of Civil UAS in the NAS Roadmap’ was launched on 7 November, and will guide the ‘transition from UAS accommodation to UAS integration’, it reads.

The FAA’s near-term focus will be to safely accommodate UAS utility, followed by a shift to integration, and a long-term focus on the refinement and updating of regulation, policy and standards.

‘The end-state is to implement streamlined processes for the continued integration of UAS into the NAS,’ it notes.
