The House of Lords Report published on the 5th March concludes, “a Detect and Avoid system must be able to automatically take evasive action with or without the Remotely Piloted Aircraft System (RPAS) pilot in the loop.” It also said that, given the potentially catastrophic consequences of a detect and avoid system failing on an RPAS, such systems should “be assigned the highest levels of software development assurance and systems availability and integrity”.

A key conclusion on industry and regulators is, “RPAS development is currently hampered by a ‘chicken and egg’ problem: industry is reluctant to invest in developing the necessary technologies without certainty about how they will be regulated, while regulators are reluctant to develop standards until industry comes forward with technologies for validation”.
