From the shameless self-promotion department, this: last week Brookings published my recent paper on the integration of unmanned aircraft systems---drones---into our national airspace.

The piece identifies: (1) key benchmarks set by the FAA Modernization and Authorization Act, the statute behind the integration process; (2) the agency's progress to date in meeting those benchmarks; and (3) core policy issues that must be addressed before late 2015---the so-called "deadline" for integration of privately- as well as government-operated drones.
