EUROCONTROL specifications for the use of military remotely piloted aircraft (UAS) as operational air traffic outside segregated airspace

These high-level, generic specifications have been drafted by the UAV-OAT TF. They require that RPA operations should not increase the risk to other airspace users, that ATM procedures should mirror those applicable to manned aircraft, and that the provision of air traffic services to RPAs should be transparent to ATC controllers. Moreover, they are not constrained by limitations in current RPA capability.

 

The specifications have been subjected to a safety assurance process and, subsequently, to endorsement by the Military Team, formal consultation via the EUROCONTROL Notice of Proposed Rule-Making process, and acceptance by the Civil/Military Interface Committee.
