Airborne-Unmanned 06.04.19: Drone Recon, NH Legislature, False Drone Report

Also: Transport Canada Requirements, UAVOS Expands, NASA Previews 2020, UAS Integration In NAS

The US Army Program Executive Officer (PEO) for Aviation's Project Manager, Unmanned Aircraft Systems, partnered with the Defense Innovation Unit (DIU) and the Army's Maneuver Center of Excellence to identify and prototype new drone capabilities with commercial companies that specialize in on-demand, "eye in the sky" technologies.

In this process, the Army is partnering with the Pentagon's internal startup accelerator to adapt small commercial drones for the battlefield. A bill under consideration by the New Hampshire legislature would add "small unmanned aircraft" to the New Hampshire Aeronautics Act, making the state DOT the primary enforcement agency. The bill was originally sponsored by State Senator David Watters (D-Dover), who said small (under 55 pound) drones need to be included in the state statute to allow the state to enforce federal regulations. Watters wrote the bill at the request of the state DOT, which acts as the enforcement agency for aviation in the state in concert and consultation with the FAA. The bill would make drones weighing under 55 pounds equivalent to manned aircraft for the purposes of setting and enforcing rules. An important development has happened for everyone concerned about the safety of drones. Back in December 2018, the pilots of an Aeromexico 737 heard a loud bang while preparing to land in Tijuana, Mexico. The radome at the front of the jet was badly damaged, but there was no evidence of a bird strike. Many observers quickly concluded it had struck a drone. But that wasn’t true. A Boeing investigation on behalf of the U.S. National Transportation Safety Board, concluded the radome most likely suffered an internal collapse because it was installed improperly. Boeing’s engineers ruled out any collision with an object. For good measure, the Feather Identification Lab of the Smithsonian Institution found no evidence of bird DNA or feathers on the radome. All this -- and MORE in today's episode of Airborne-Unmanned!!!
