Small UAS DAA Requirements for BVLOS Operations (A2)

The FAA’s proposed small UAS rules say that operators must be able to see their UAS at all times when flying. This means UAS can only fly a few miles from their operators, restricting their usefulness. NMSU and UND are researching methods to make it safe to fly UAS even when the operator can’t see their UAS. The research will help the FAA decide when it’s safe to allow commercial UAS to fly beyond the line-of-sight of their operators.
