Looking ahead for Beyond Line of Sight
Unmanned aircraft have already proven their technological and economic potential in various domains in recent years. Existing applications counter the operation of unmanned aircraft, usually through a separate airspace. However, future applications with a particularly higher degree of autonomy and beyond the line of sight will require the integration of the unmanned vehicle system into non-segregated civil airspace.
Therefore, the European regulatory authorities have established a legal and operational framework enabling the certification of unmanned aerial vehicles considering ground and air risk. In addition, there are efforts that also focus on the safe integration of unmanned systems into the civil airspace.
This presentation shows the efforts for the certification of an unmanned aerial vehicle and its integration into civil airspace
