Detect and Avoid technology is Mandatory

REDUCE PILOT ERROR

Drone pilots are skilled aviators but even they struggle to see and avoid obstacles and aircraft when operating drones at extended range.

REDUCE OPERATIONAL RISK

No pilot on board means low situational awareness. This risk is huge and the potential conflicts can be extremely dangerous.

REDUCE APPROVAL DIFFICULTY

Not being able to show adequate mitigation of operational risk means regulators are forced to limit drone uses and applications to closed environments.
