NASA Hosts Industry Day for Unmanned Aircraft in National Airspace Collaboration

NASA Aeronautics is heavily involved in developing solutions for safe integration of Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) in the national airspace. NASA has two UAS projects that work in lock-step with the Federal Aviation Administration to address the challenges facing UAS integration across the full spectrum of aircraft type and sizes, and the environments in which they fly.
NASA’s Unmanned Aircraft Systems Integration in the National Airspace System project, or UAS in the NAS, will contribute capabilities designed to reduce the technical barriers related to safety and operational challenges associated with integrating larger-sized UAS — those that weigh 55 pounds or more and fly higher than 500 feet, including full-size repurposed Predator and Global Hawks — into the national airspace.
