USA sends rules on drone regulation to White House for review

In the first three years of drone integration, it is predicted that more than 70,000 jobs will be created in the U.S. with an economic impact of more than $13.6 billion.

AirMap, an airspace management company for drones, said it was on six winning applications. The United States has lagged other countries in experimentation with drones, something the program hopes to correct.

Reuters reports that the program would exempt participating companies from four FAA regulations.

"In order to ensure that our airspace remains the safest in the world, and to enable our law enforcement and national security partners to identify security risks, we need to know who is operating in the airspace", Lawrence said.

In a statement to Reuters, Apple explains that it is committed to protecting people's privacy and will blur any and all faces and license plates before publishing drone imagery.

Microsoft Corp is among the partners for a Kansas project, while Qualcomm Inc is joining a winning bid from the City of San Diego to test a wide range of public safety, commercial and emergency response applications.

In addition to drone delivery, other potential drone applications include environmental monitoring, overseeing pipelines, using drones near to airports, precision agriculture, and more. General Electric Co is also a partner, he said.

Earlier, the agency confirmed it had sent two planned rules to the White House to regulate the increased use of unmanned aerial vehicles. One rule submitted would allow drones to fly over people while another proposal submitted would allow for remote identification and tracking of unmanned aircraft in flight. Current rules prohibit nighttime drone flights or operations over people without a waiver from the FAA. After both are formally proposed, it would take months or even more than a year before they are finalized. The data collected from these operations will help the USDOT and the FAA craft new enabling rules that allow more complex low-altitude operations, identify ways to balance local and national interests related to UAS integration, improve communications with local, state and tribal jurisdictions, address security and privacy risks, and accelerate the approval of operations that now require special authorizations.

"Kansas is once again leading the way on the national and global stage", he said.

Top technology companies including Apple, Amazon, Intel and Qualcomm, are said to be taking part in a US drone test initiative announced by President Donald Trump past year, with a slew of new tests starting today.
