Skyward and faa to test cellular-connected drones

Skyward, a Verizon company, has signed a Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) with the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) to test cellular-connected drones. The three-year MOA also allows the two groups to propose standards for operations, including BVLOS and over commercial wireless spectrum.

The MOA is inspired by the previous industry collaborations with the FAA. It is intended to address complex UAS operations through joint data collection and analysis. The agreement also follows Skyward’s announced emergency waiver to inspect critical communications infrastructure near the Big Hollow wildfire in Washington in September 2020.
