Comercial Drones Regulation in EU

The current regulatory system for drones in the European Union is based on fragmented rules, with many Member States having already regulated or planning to regulate some aspects of civil drones with an operating mass of 150 kg or less.

The EASA (European Aviation Safety Agency) has the responsibility for drones over 150kg. However, the conditions and details of national regulations differs between EU Member states.

This article summarizes the main points about operations and UAs (Unmanned Aircrafts) requisites presented in the ‘prototype’ regulation of EASA (22 August 2016) [3].

MOBNET GSM Positioning

The main objective of MOBNET is to locate isolated victims during natural disasters and situations of emergency such as earthquakes, hurricanes or large snowstorms. It will also help first responder services to find lost people in general. To that end, the use of European Global Navigation Satellite (EGNSS) systems (both Galileo early services and EGNOS) and Digital Cellular Technologies (DCT) will play the key role in these situations in which it is difficult, dangerous or even impossible to access the affected areas.
