Researchers from NASA will design a traffic management program specifically for drones. As the New York Times wrote, the space program agency is now working on a technology that manage aircraft flights at heights of only 400 feet to 500 feet (form 120 to 150 meters). This height is, in fact, lower than airplanes’ and needs a specific technology because drones can be damaged from weather or wind, not to mention their traffic which has to be regulated.
The system that NASA is developing will also be sure that drones won’t collide over buildings. In addition, no-fly zones such as hospitals will be respected. It will also be able to detect unauthorized drones flying under 400 feet, respecting the present legislation, but, most of all, guaranteeing the privacy and the security of private citizens.
Fondazione Comunica and Associazione Italiana Droni, as well as NASA, have the aim of regulating the security of operations with drones, that is the reason why we are currently organising formative courses that will teach operators the basics of drones and how to pilot them.
