White House: UAS shall overcome

Unmanned air systems (UAS) will prove they belong in the same airspace as passenger jets in 10 years, the White House says.

The 10-year roadmap quietly last week last week by the Office of Science and Technology Policy (OSTP) is not quite the UAS equivalent of Brown vs the Board of Education (Editor: Ahem, not that airspace integration and school desegregation are even close ). But it is the first White House-level document establishing UAS airspace integration as a policy goal.

The FAA today candidly discriminates against UAS technology in national airspace. It’s not even a separate but equal policy today; it’s just separate.

The new objective to integrate the national airspace is one of several goals contained in the document, entitled the National Aeronautics Research and Development Plan 2010. It is dated February, but was released on the OSTP web site on March 4.
