[[UAS]]s are aircraft that do not carry a pilot aboard, but instead operate on pre-programmed routes or are manually controlled by following commands from pilot-operated [[ground control station]]s. The [[FAA Modernization and Reform Act]] of 2012 put greater emphasis on the need to integrate [[UAS]]s into the national airspace by requiring that the [[FAA]] establish requirements governing them. The [[FAA]] has developed a three-phased approach in its 5-year Roadmap to facilitate incremental steps toward seamless integration. However, in the absence of [[regulation]]s, unauthorized [[UAS]] operations have, in some instances, compromised safety.
