Airbus Aerial was granted a waiver by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) to conduct beyond visual line of sight (BVLOS) unmanned aerial systems (UAS) operations in Grand Forks, North Dakota, without the need for a visual observer. The waiver allows Airbus Aerial to conduct such operations as part of the North Dakota Department of Transportation (NDDOT) UAS Integration Pilot Program (IPP), a public–private partnership sponsored by the FAA to help define the regulatory framework for drone operations and their integration into the national airspace system. The Airbus Aerial work will focus on working with Xcel Energy to deploy a SenseFly eBee Plus fixed-wing UAS to fly BVLOS over the right of ways of Xcel Energy’s distribution networks in residential neighborhoods. This work will help the utility industry appropriately assess and use UAS and enjoy the benefits of a cost-effective and scalable program across an entire network.
