Position paper on new spectrum band for RPAS

RSM in conjunction with the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) have developed a position paper on opening up a new band of spectrum at 5 GHz, for remotely piloted aircraft systems (RPAS) command and control.

This paper looks at potential band plans, as well as access regimes for RPAS that are flown under the CAA's RPAS rules.
