Deployment Scenario Title

IFR RPAS integration in airspace classes A to C

Deployment Scenario Description IFR RPAS integration into airspace classes A to C: the aim is to provide the technical capabilities and procedural means to allow IFR RPAS to comply with ATC instructions, and to develop new procedures and tools to allow ATC to handle IFR RPAS in a cooperative environment in full integration with manned aviation. This will also involve developing and validating an operational DAA system for IFR RPAS.
