Intel Receives FAA Authorization for Nighttime Drone Operations - top government contractors - best government contracting event

QualcommUASThe Federal Aviation Administration has granted a certificate of waiver that permits Intel to operate multiple small unmanned aircraft systems at night within special security notice flight restricted areas in the U.S.

Intel said Thursday the Part 107 waiver extends a Section 333 exemption that the company obtained to fly 100 small UAS for its Drone 100 light show in Palms Springs, California earlier this year.

Executive Gov reported Monday the FAA unveiled an online portal where drone operators can apply for Part 107 waivers that will authorize drone operations at night, beyond line of sight and above 400 feet, among other conditions.

Intel added its FAA waiver will help the company to go beyond 100 drones and reach up to 1,000 UAS.

The company looks to expand drone light shows in the U.S. to highlight the potential applications of unmanned aerial vehicles in the future.
