An innovative solution for drones operated below 500 feet Concerns of policy makers, regulators and the public answered
Near collisions with commercial aircraft and numerous other incidents involving Remotely Piloted Aircraft Systems – commonly known as drones – have become major problems for regulators and the emerging drone industry.
Recent examples include drones disrupting the U.S. Open tennis tournament in New York, drones interfering with fire fighters in California and drones being used to smuggle contraband into U.S. prisons. All received widespread news coverage, as did the earlier episode when an out-of-control drone penetrated the security perimeter of the White House.
Such incidents will soon be a rarity when RelmaTech’s Secure Integrated Airspace Management system – SIAM – is adopted and deployed, according to Philip Hall, RelmaTech’s Founding Director and CEO.
Patent Filing and Engagement with Regulators:
SIAM offers a viable and robust solution to the critical issues confronting regulators and manufacturers responsible for ensuring the safety of low-flying Remotely Piloted Aircraft Systems (RPAS). According to Hall, RelmaTech has initiated patent filing for SIAM and is now actively engaged in advising international regulatory bodies and major industry organizations of the system’s impressive operational potential. “We have advised the International Civil Aviation Organisation RPAS Program Office in Montreal, and earlier this month conducted briefings to the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration in Washington DC and the UK Civil Aviation Authority in London. Those meetings were very positive with commitments for further discussions and demonstration of system capabilities.”
