Description
 
Statement of Gerald L. Dillingham, Dir, Physical Infrastructure Issues, GAO. Unmanned aircraft systems are aircraft and associated equipment that do not carry a pilot aboard, but instead operate on pre-programmed routes or are manually controlled by pilot-operated ground stations. Although current domestic uses of UAS are limited to activities such as law enforcement, forensic photography, border security, and scientific data collection, UAS also have a wide range of other potential commercial uses. The market for UAS is expected to grow and could be potentially worth $89 billion over the next decade. Concerned with the pace of UAS integration into the national airspace, Congress established specific requirements and set deadlines for the Fed. Aviation Admin. (FAA) in the 2012 FAA Modernization and Reform Act (the 2012 Act). This testimony discusses (1) the roles and responsibilities of and coordination among federal agencies and other UAS stakeholders involved in integrating UAS; (2) FAAs progress in complying with the 2012 Acts UAS requirements; and (3) research and development efforts by FAA and other entities to address challenges for safely integrating UAS. Figures and tables. This is a print on demand report.
