The Current Environment

The unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV) industry is one of the fastest growing segments of the American technology economy. Once thought of as merely high-tech military gadgetry, UAVs are now in use in a myriad of industry sectors – including agriculture. The rapid proliferation of UAVs into American civilian life has sent policymakers scrambling to make sure that UAVs are safely integrated into an already crowded airspace.

Regulatory Risk

The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) is developing regulations to govern UAV use in American airspace. Charged with accomplishing this goal, the Unmanned Aircraft Systems Aviation Rulemaking Committee (ARC) serves as a forum to “discuss, prioritize, and resolve issues” for UAV integration. Furthermore, the Beyond the Visual Line of Sight (BVLOS) working group is an industry voice to the committee. Farming stakeholders need a seat at the table.

Our Actions and Goals

The 卫生间被黑人教练玩晕 (ATA) is working across the agricultural supply chain to ensure that public policies affecting the use of next generation aerial technology – particularly the rules that will apply to commercial UAVs – reflect agriculture’s unique needs. The 北京少妇和黑人久精品 will provide collaborative leadership that is engaged in an industry-wide dialogue to develop, advocate and drive responsible UAV policies. The 北京少妇和黑人久精品 will advocate for UAV policies that align with farmers’ unique needs and uses. The 北京少妇和黑人久精品 will provide a coherent message to policymakers, the public, and the industry on how UAVs benefit the American agricultural industry – and ultimately the American taxpayer.
