Traffic management. IDC notes that NASA has taken the lead on developing a UAV traffic management system that relies on geofencing technology to keep drones away from sensitive locations such as the White House or airports.  However, no more capacity can be added to the current radar-based air traffic control system to monitor low-altitude…
