Technological advancements such as robust communication systems, more reliable sense-and-avoid capabilities and traffic management systems have made safer and more efficient UAV operations beyond visual line-of-sight (BVLOS) possible. Authorities are exploring guidelines and standards to ensure the safe integration of drones into the airspace, thus regulatory frameworks are evolving as well to suit these advanced operations. While there are still challenges, technology is steadily improving to allow for widespread fully automated BVLOS operations. And it opens up numerous potential applications, from package delivery to infrastructure inspection to public safety and beyond.
This session delves into technical progress and highlights the importance of cross-industry collaboration, especially between the aviation and telecom sectors, which provides the foundation for future innovation.
