EUROCONTROL specifications for the use of military remotely piloted aircraft (UAS)
These high-level, generic specifications have been drafted by the UAV-OAT TF. They require that Remotely Piloted Aircraft (RPA) operations should not increase the risk to other airspace users; that Air Traffic Management (ATM) procedures should mirror those applicable to manned aircraft; and that the provision of air traffic services to RPAs should be transparent to Air Traffic Controllers. Moreover, they are not constrained by limitations in current RPA capability.
The specifications have been subjected to a safety assurance process and, subsequently, to endorsement by the Military Team, formal consultation via the EUROCONTROL Notice of Proposed Rule-Making process, and acceptance by the Civil/Military Interface Committee.
