To date, federally-funded research and development (R&D) efforts around drone security, including Remote ID and counter-drone technology, have been limited. These R&D efforts are critical to moving the policy and regulatory frameworks forward. Testing of proposed solutions is important to ensure a secure NAS. The Alliance here outlines its priorities for drone security research and development efforts.
As organizations representing the commercial drone and related aviation and vertical industries, we express our support for H.R. 1108, the Aviation Funding Stability Act of 2019, a bill designed to protect the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) from the effects of future federal government shutdowns.
