Developing an Ecosystem for UAS Safety—UAS operations can be viewed as an ecosystem of sorts, with multiple components interacting with each other to create a safe environment. This ecosystem includes the people, equipment, documentation, processes, software, etc., necessary to maintain a framework of support from which the remote pilot can safely, efficiently, and accurately perform mission-oriented flights. To create this self-perpetuating ecosystem for UAS operations, from which the mission and aircraft complexity will scale, it is essential for an organization to analyze the key areas identified in this whitepaper.
