No.40 - Present and Future of Civilian Drones
The Air and Space Academy (AAE) and the Association
Aéronautique et Astronautique de France (French
Aerospace Society, 3AF) endeavour to focus their attention
and reflections on important issues linked to innovative development
activities in air and space.
This is the context behind the conference organised by AAE and 3AF
on “Present and future of civilian RPAS” on 13 and 14 November 2014
in the Paris DGAC auditorium.
This dossier not only takes into account the main lessons learned
from the conference, but looks further, drawing on documents
published in the meantime by the Federal Aviation Administration
(FAA) and the European Commission. In particular, it contains
recommendations on the European and French drone sectors, on
drone design and realisation, including specific needs linked to
development and experimentation, and on ensuring privacy and
security with respect to illegal acts.
