The Pre-tactical geo-fencing service provides the operator with geo-information about predefined restricted areas (prisons, etc.) and available aeronautical information (NOTAM, AIRAC cycle) used during the flight preparation. This service requires the identification of accredited sources and the availability of qualified geoinformation related to restricted areas. This service provides information that allows the drone operator to make use of the geo-fencing capability of the drone.
