Both organisations to utilise French drone expertise and less onerous laws to develop drone control systems
France is reportedly being targetted by both NASA and Amazon to help in the development of a drone air-traffic control system.
The country has key experts needed for this development, and it is helped by the fact that France has less stringent laws governing the use of unmanned vehicles.
That NASA air-traffic control system for drone was apparently being developed at NASA’s Moffett Field, near Google’s Mountain View, California headquarters.
That system was supposed to be designed specifically for devices flying around 500 feet to the ground or less, and it would monitor weather and air traffic conditions, keeping track of wind patterns that could affect lightweight drones.
The system would also ensure drones keep clear of buildings, helicopters and other objects, also enforcing no-fly zones around areas such as major airports.
