FAA Completes Nationwide Implementation of Drone Tracking System

1 min read

The Federal Aviation Administration has activated the final component of its nationwide system designed to authorize and track drones in real time, FCW reported Monday.

The North Central region coverage of the Low Altitude Authorization and Notification Capability is now operational, completing the activation of all six components that collectively cover 288 air traffic control stations.

Dan Elwell, administrator of the FAA, said in April that the agency is implementing the LAANC nationwide in a move to regulate the increasing number of private drones in the U.S.

The system supports FAA's UAS Data Exchange effort, a public-private partnership that facilitates information sharing to support the integration of unmanned aircraft systems into U.S. airspace.
