In addition to the FAA’s Roadmap, as required in the 2012 FAA Reauthorization, the Joint Planning and Development Office developed a comprehensive plan to safely accelerate the integration of civil UASs into the national airspace system.

On Nov. 7, 2013, the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) released a roadmap highlighting the “operational goals and safety issues we need to consider when planning for the future of our airspace.”

The FAA’s first annual Roadmap, outlining efforts needed to safely integrate unmanned aircraft systems (UASs) into the nation’s airspace, addresses current and future policies, regulations, technologies and procedures that will be required as demand moves the country from today’s limited accommodation of UAS operations to their integration into a next-generation aviation system.

The Roadmap outlines FAA’s approach to ensuring that widespread UAS use is safe, from the perspective of accommodation, integration and evolution. The agency’s main integration goal is to establish requirements that UAS operators will have to meet to increase access to airspace during the next decade.
