NextGen poses substantial systems integration challenges due to numerous technical, organizational, political, and social perspectives and their complex interdependencies. Specifically, this paper addresses the challenges associated with integrating Unmanned Aircraft Systems UAS into the NAS, utilizing systems-of-systems methodology to identify and assess the integration risks. The team started by studying simple systems-of-systems to explore how modeling such systems can be applied to more complex systems, such as NextGen.
Due to NextGen's evolving nature, the team adopted a dynamic methodological roadmap to guide risk assessment. Scott "Esko" Brummel, MA.

Unmanned Aerial Systems Traffic Management. Status quo thinking. Maintaining the status quo seems conservative but can prevent the introduction of helpful technologies and, in turn, delay opportunities to implement safety procedures provided by these systems. Scientific Assumptions One of the key points in this report is how the conservative risk culture adopted by the FAA is inhibiting the potential of UAS.
The Debate. Status This report of the National Academies of Science, Engineering, and Medicine is the result of three meetings convened by the National Academies between Fall of and Winter Related Policies S.

Defines the authorizations of the Federal Aviation Administration, including counter drone operations, as well as sets safety standards and certification processes.

Insitu is hopeful that Type Certification will enable ScanEagle3 to be applied quickly to all types of operation, which could include data collection, analysis and delivery; aerial infrastructure survey; disaster recovery; and wildfire suppression — without the delay currently associated with seeking permits and overcoming temporary flight restrictions.
Meanwhile, the FAA flexed its legal muscles to restrict drone flights near U. Navy USN , U. The first notification describes the locations and the assets — in this case, ships operating from two bases — and includes the form of restrictions that are being applied. Drones are not allowed to get closer than 3, feet laterally and 1, feet vertically from vessels.

And the NOTAMs carry the dire warning that these ships have the authorization and ability to take whatever action they feel necessary to protect themselves from such threats. In other words, if the nut-case flying an unwelcome drone penetrates the restricted area around a Navy or Coast Guard ship, the target ship might well take out the unwanted drone. DoD is concerned this could soon start to happen closer to home. Textron Systems continues to position itself as a global leader in autonomy applications in air, land and sea. In addition, Delair has just announced an agreement to acquire the key assets of Airware — a developer of software analytics tools for data collected by drones.
Delair provides end-to-end solutions, including fixed-wing drones, cloud-based data processing and analysis, local customer support and custom consulting services. Airware, based in California, has provided a cloud-based software solution to large companies in the construction, mining and insurance industries. Its software solution was developed with support from Caterpillar and has been distributed by Caterpillar dealers to more than 50 countries to improve the productivity and safety in mines, quarries and construction sites.
Delair, with more than employees worldwide, has customers in a number of industries including mining, construction, energy, utilities, oil and gas, transportation and security.
