UK and NASA Drone Tracking System

The UK and NASA are Planning a Drone-Tracking System

Colin Lecher | September 17, 2015

The UK government is in talks with NASA about building a tracking system that could detect drones flying below 500 feet, the Under Secretary of State for Transport confirmed yesterday.
As spotted by Ars Technica UK, Lord Ahmad Tariq said the government is "in early discussions with NASA about the drone traffic management system." What, exactly, such a system would look like is still unclear, though: Tariq said eventually trials will be needed "to test the robustness of the technology."
