For the unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) industry to become mainstream, there are many pieces of a puzzle that have to fit into place. We need to find a way to securely integrate into a crowded and extremely safe national airspace (NAS), but we also have to figure out how to make it in a way that is profitable and repeatable.


Flights beyond visual line of sight (BVLOS) are the obvious starting point, and many companies are working with the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) to develop and deploy technologies that allow for these flights to be conducted safely and within the strict rules that also apply to general aviation (GA) and commercial airliners.
