In 2012, the United States government asked the Federal Aviation Administration to determine how to integrate unmanned aircraft systems into the National Airspace System. Because of current airspace restrictions, non-defense use of unmanned aircraft has been extremely limited.
The Association for Unmanned Vehicle Systems International estimates the economic impact of unmanned aircraft systems after integration into the National Airspace System will total more that $13.6 billion in the first three years of integration. Integration into the National Air System will create more than 34,000 manufacturing jobs and more than 70,000 new jobs
In Massachusetts, the estimated impact is $386 million and 1,985 jobs from 2015-2017.
