Could your organization help the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) develop the technological infrastructure required to support and accelerate drone integration?
Now’s your chance to be at the forefront of an emerging technology that normalizes drone operations at low altitude and supports the development of an UAS Traffic Management System (UTM). The Low Altitude Authorization and Notification Capability (LAANC), is a collaboration between the FAA and the private sector and provides drone pilots with easy access to controlled airspace through near real-time processing of airspace authorizations.
