ASG Support to Maritime and Coastguard Agency (MCA) Drone Demonstration & Development Pathfinder
MCA Drone demonstration & Deveolpment Pathfinder
ASG is part of a delivery partenrship of MCA, Elbit Systems UK, and Inzpire working in close co-operation with the CAA, to deliver an integrated BVLOS operated UAS in unsegregated, uncontrolled (U2) airspace to support UK search and rescue operations.
This Pathfinder project aims to explore and develop, through demonstration, the regulatory environment to support the use of BVLOS drones in all classes of airspace. This will facilitate regular and routine use of drones, allowing the Maritime and Coastguard Agency to discharge its time critical, reactive Search and Rescue and Counter Pollution international obligations.
