Safely Integrating Drones At ScaleScroll Down
UAS Integration Framework
The UAS Integration Framework provides a unifying approach to comprehensive UAS readiness, outlining UAS Operator, and National, State, and Local Government considerations at each milestone; reducing complexities, accelerating the benefits and ensuring safe, legal UAS operations that are in harmony with the communities they serve.
Stakeholders across the UAS ecosystem are currently in varying stages of readiness. This framework provides stakeholders with a common language to harmonize capabilities and objective outcomes across framework levels to understand gaps, requirements, and associated benefits and risks.
Regulations & Readiness
Understand your community’s unique airspace and ground risk characteristics , information about critical infrastructure, other aerial impediments, and existing drone registration and certified pilots within your community.
Activation & Awareness
Increase awareness of where and when flights are happening to support safety and begin data collection for future planning. Understand public and private sector operations and increase coordination as operations increase.
Planning & Analysis
Unlike traditional aviation operating within airport jurisdictions only, the need for UAS to operate, take off, and land in local communities drives the need for additional coordination between federal, state and local governments. Planning and analysis is required to include unique local considerations in a framework for integration.
After the infrastructure and policy established through the planning and analysis process are implemented, validating the approach will provide additional data and real-world examples to verify the blueprint before wide scale roll-out.
Replicate successes of infrastructure and UAS operations confirmed in the validation stage in a structured rollout approach, advancing into new locations and different use cases.
To deliver on the full expected benefits of drones from the environment to social equity to the economy, drones will need to operate ubiquitously at scale across broad geographies with fully integrated airspace management capabilities
