FAA main concern is that UAS operate safely among all users of the NAS, including manned aircraft and other airborne operations not reliably identified by radar (balloons, gliders, parachutists, etc.).
No current certifiable system to “detect, sense, and avoid” manned a/c below FL180.
Alternate methods of compliance, other risk mitigation strategies required (i.e., visual observers).
Specific authorization is required to conduct UAS operations in the U.S. National Airspace System (NAS) outside of active Restricted, Prohibited, or Warning Area airspace.
Issuance of Certificate of Waiver or Authorization (COA)
For operations conducted wholly within active Restricted, Prohibited, Warning Area airspace with permission from appropriate authority or using agency of that airspace (must be scheduled by proponent).

DoD UAS that weigh 20 pounds or less, under following conditions:
Ops conducted within Class G airspace, below 1,200’ AGL over military bases, reservations, or land protected by purchase, lease, or other restriction. Not applicable to airspace identified by 14 CFR 91.215 b(2).
Airspace within 30 nm of an airport with associated Class B airspace (even if UAS equipped with Transponder with Mode C).
