D2.1 Current State-of-the-Art and regulatory basis

The RPAS integration in TMA operations is a quite wide and complex topic, that in part has already been explored in other projects and initiatives. The present state-of-the-art intends to set the scene and the boundaries of the project, highlighting all the previous research that constitutes the foundation of the present work, in order to avoid duplications and produce new and innovative results in the framework of RPAS integration in civil non-segregated airspace pertaining to TMA and airport.   

The state-of-the-art research here provided focuses on three main aspects of RPAS integration, namely: technologies, human aspects and applicable rules and standards.

It also includes information about other past and present activities carried out in Europe, and more specifically within the SESAR framework, that can be considered relevant for the project since related to the project, either directly or indirectly. 

This state-of-the-art is the first public deliverable produced and made available by the INVIRCAT project.
