Potential Impacts of the FAA Reauthorization Act of 2018 on the Commercial Unmanned Aircraft Industry
As the Unmanned Aircraft Industry evolves, regulatory actions from Congress will significantly shape the ability to expand and integrate into the existing National Airspace System. The recently finalized 2018 FAA Reauthorization Act has the potential to be the most impactful of legislative actions to date.
Exploring Impediments to the Proliferation of Commercial Unmanned Aerial System (UAS) Use in the National Airspace System (NAS) of the United States
Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UASs), best known as Drones, are expanding in their use, finding new commercial applications and honing their abilities in existing applications. The interviews analyzed here are designed to understand why UAS use has not reached its full commercial potential in the United States.
Facilities management has become increasingly challenging over the years. Given all that history has shown us regarding catastrophic failures due to a lack of maintenance, why do public facilities continue expanding at a rate that surpasses the ability and/or commitment to responsibly maintain them?
Facilities management has become increasingly challenging over the years as facilities expand and the cost of construction increases–all while available funds continue to remain volatile. Deferred maintenance is a mounting problem that is insurmountable in some cases. Why is this the case and how did we get here?
