What is BVLOS? Decoding the Skies: Understanding BVLOS in Drone Operations

In the realm of aviation and drone technology, acronyms are more than just shorthand; they’re the language of the skies. From UAV (Unmanned Aerial Vehicle) and UAS (Unmanned Aircraft System) to RPAS (Remotely Piloted Aircraft System), these terms pave the way for understanding the complexities of aerial operations. Among these, one acronym stands out for its significance in expanding the capabilities of drone technology: BVLOS, or “Beyond Visual Line Of Sight.”

BVLOS refers to drone operations where the operator can no longer maintain direct visual contact with the drone. This is contrasted with VLOS (Visual Line Of Sight) operations, where the drone remains within the operator’s sight. The transition from VLOS to BVLOS represents a leap in operational scope and complexity, enabling drones to undertake longer and more autonomous missions, far beyond the limitations of the operator’s visual range.

This capability opens up possibilities for drone usage, from comprehensive aerial surveys and remote inspections to delivering goods in inaccessible areas. However, with great potential comes great responsibility. Navigating the regulatory landscape of BVLOS operations is crucial, as these rules vary significantly across different countries and regions, tailored to ensure safety and efficiency in the airspace.

At RigiTech, we are at the forefront of leveraging BVLOS technology to enhance drone delivery services. Our expertise not only lies in operating within these regulatory frameworks but also in guiding our clients through the maze of regulations specific to their country. By partnering with us, businesses and organisations can unlock the full potential of drone technology, pushing the boundaries of what’s possible in aerial logistics.
