ROME, N.Y. – The FAA has proposed new regulations that would allow for real-time drone tracking to allow fleets of unmanned aircraft to fly in the same space.
NUAIR in Rome is also developing technology that would allow drones to detect and avoid aircraft, according to the Wall Street Journal.
Griffiss is one of seven sites across the country designated by the FAA for testing unmanned aircraft systems.
The FAA proposal is now open for public comment. The plans would take at least three years to implement.
NUAIR was recently approved to test beyond visual line of sight, which allows testing to occur without multiple people on the ground observing. This authority applies within the first segment of the 50-mile drone corridor that runs from Rome to Syracuse.
