Use of EGNOS for drone operations

Mónica de Frutos Ortega, from AESA (Spanish Aviation Safety and Security Agency), presented in the Annual EGNOS workshop the EGNOS benefits in the drone operations, taking into account the Spanish regulatory framework. Due to the high number of UAS users in Spain, the RPAS Advisory Commission at AESA has developed guidance material for UAS operations. The presentation highlighted that some commercial drones already comply with the requirements for using EGNOS. Due to the expected high number of drones, having an accurate navigation solution is a key requirement for safe navigation, and EGNOS is a significant enabler in that sense, improving the accuracy of the position and ensuring better navigation capabilities.
