THE US Federal Aviation Administration (F) and the Switzerland Federal Office of Civil Aviation have announced that they have reached an agreement in harmonising domestic and international safety standards for Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS).

This agreement builds on US and Swiss efforts to ensure that the fastest growing and broadest segment of aviation is integrated safely, efficiently and seamlessly around the world, reported the American Journal of Transportation.



'UAS activities are now accepted worldwide as a vital sector of aviation,' said Jay Merkle, executive director of the F's UAS Integration Office. 'This US/Swiss agreement continues the move forward of the safe, efficient, and internationally harmonised integration of these vehicles into the world's airspace.'



The participants intend to collaborate under a Declaration of Intent (DOI) on UAS issues of mutual interest and benefit. The primary objectives of the DOI are to provide opportunities to engage in research and development; exchange ideas, personnel, and information; provide coordination with other government entities and stakeholders; and to collaborate on other initiatives and projects determined to be of mutual interest and benefit in relation to UAS operations.
