Today, large scale usage of RPAS in commercial operations is almost non existing due to lack of coordination, technology gaps and regulation. To achieve commercial large scale operations, a complete eco-system is required and needs to include at least the following keys for success: Well defined commercially sustainable missions, suitable RPA systems, payloads and data analytics, air space management systems, synchronized fleet management systems, and supporting regulation. This presentation shall describe the required building blocks, IAI’s development roadmap and IAI’s participation in current EU R&D programmes funded by SESAR and H2020.
