Open Martin's Beach

Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) Integration Pilot Program
Drones are proving to be especially valuable in emergency situations, including assessing damage from natural disasters, such as the recent hurricanes and the wildfires in California. Small Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) include drones less than 55 pounds and equipment necessary for their safe and efficient operation. To promote continued technological innovation and to ensure the global leadership of the United States in this emerging industry, the regulatory framework for UAS operations must be sufficiently flexible to keep pace with the advancement of UAS technology, while balancing the vital Federal roles in protecting privacy and civil liberties; mitigating risks to national security and homeland security; and protecting the safety of the American public, critical infrastructure, and the Nation's airspace. In less than a decade, the potential economic benefit of integrating UAS in the nation’s airspace is estimated at $82 billion and could create 100,000 jobs.
