Integration of Civil Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) in the National Airspace System (NAS) Roadmap

The FAA has released its First Edition UAS Roadmap, Comprehensive Plan, and Final FAA Privacy Policy for UAS Test Sites.

Privacy is not within the jurisdiction of the FAA, as the Agency writes, "Although the FAA’s mission does not include developing or enforcing policies pertaining to privacy or civil liberties, experience with the UAS test sites will present an opportunity to inform the dialogue in the IPC and other interagency forums concerning the use of UAS technologies and the areas of privacy and civil liberties."
