"PrecisionHawk is working on many safety solutions, procedural and technological, that we believe can contribute to safer operations for commercial drones in the national airspace," said Ernest Earon, PrecisionHawk CTO and co-founder. "The creation of this task force further demonstrates the willingness of the FAA to move forward with industry leaders to promote rapid and safe integration."

"As a UAS technology company and operator, we know how important coordinated identification is to the environments in which we work," said Thomas Haun, VP of Strategy at PrecisionHawk. "The goal of this task force, to create a streamlined registration process for UAS, will have a direct and positive impact on the operations of our partners and service teams."

This task force presents another opportunity for PrecisionHawk to serve as a technical resource to regulators as we move towards the adoption of UAV regulations. Earlier this year PrecisionHawk was also named, alongside CNN and BNSF, to the FAA Pathfinder Program to test and develop technology solutions to solve beyond line of sight operations.
