Drone Air Traffic System Being Tested In Northern Nevada

A new system is intended to manage drone air traffic.

The Reno Gazette-Journal reports NASA and the University of Nevada, Reno's NUANCE Lab tested the system for the second time last week.

A NASA official said the question is how to manage many unmanned aircraft systems both within view and beyond a line of sight.
