General Atomics, South Korean S&T Institute Partner to Develop RPA Civilian Airspace Integration Strategies

General Atomics‘ aeronautical systems business and the Korean Advanced Institute of Science and Technology have partnered to develop strategies to integrate remotely piloted aircraft into South Korea’s civil airspace.

CR2CENT offers advice and analysis support in efforts to formulate legal and technical concepts for RPA integration efforts.
