Also: Drones at Oshkosh!, Drone Regulatory Effort, AMA Drone Report-Help Wanted, Aero-TV: MultiGP Drone Racing

The House of Representatives has published initial language to reauthorize funding for the FAA. A move to privatize the ATC system is causing widespread concern among aviation groups and pilots nationwide. Our friend, Jonathan Rupprecht has furnished a few observations of interest to the drone community. The new language ‘upholds the protections of Section 336 regarding model aircraft flyers but DOES allow the FAA to create a registration system for model aircraft.’ The two largest names in the FPV culture are joining forces! MultiGP and Rotor Riot are combining forces to make sure the 2017 International Open is an event that gets chiseled in FPV history. MultiGP says this inaugural Rotor Riot themed version of the MultiGP International Open is your best opportunity to catch a

Airborne-Unmanned 06.20.17: UAS Orgs v Bad Regs, Anti-Collision, Drone Race $$

Also: Solar-Powered UAS, NK Drone, UAS Survey, Brian Wynne Interview

The team at AUVSI is staying plenty busy as they and 13 other organizations authored a letter to members of Congress urging them to consider the potential consequences for the UAS industry if legislation was enacted affecting the federal sovereignty of the airspace. One of the technologies on display at the Paris Airshow this week seeks to deal with anti-collision programs to separate UAVs form manned vehicles. To integrate UAVs into the national airspace, the National Research Council of Canada has developed the Passive Intelligent Collision Avoidance Sensor (PICAS) system, allowing UAS to detect oncoming aircraft more accurately than ever before. PICAS allows UAS to detect aircraft that are not able to communicate their position to other aircraft. And... the big money deals just keep rolling in... The Drone Racing League has ju
