Regulations & Detect-and-Avoid: Current State and Path Forward

On-demand Webinar | Free

Drone pilots and program managers are looking to expand their operations with Beyond Visual Line of Sight (BVLOS) capabilities. Regulators worldwide have indicated that proving a UAV’s capability to detect intruder aircraft and avoid mid-air collisions is essential to BVLOS flight - placing safety as the highest priority when shaping regulations. In this webinar we’ll discuss the regulatory pathways to fly BVLOS, and how practical Detect-and-Avoid technology can be used to mitigate the risk of airborne collisions, ultimately unlocking a wide range of use cases. 

What you’ll learn in this event:

  • Overview of current BVLOS drone laws and waiver processes
  • What BVLOS competency is, how it factors in waiver applications, and ways to achieve it
  • Considerations based on your use case and selection of a BVLOS-capable aircraft
  • How collision avoidance fits within newly released regulations like Remote ID and Operations Over People
