A Qatari-built drone that could help protect Qatar’s airspace

By Chris RatcliffePublished March 24, 2020 00:57:59Qatar has a problem with airspace violations.
Its airspace is not secure, and the United Arab Emirates (UAE) has been pushing for a new treaty to protect airspace from U.S. and other powers.
The U.A.E. has been trying to get the Qatar Airports Authority (QAQA) to agree to the new treaty, but the QAQS, an independent body, has so far refused.
Now, a new drone is coming to the rescue.
Qatar Airports and Airport Management Company (QAAMC) is developing the drone, which can fly in restricted airspace and can detect and track air traffic.
The company is calling the drone “Qatarair.”
Qatar’s airspace is being increasingly used by U.C. Berkeley, the U.K. government, and some international organizations for air traffic control, though QAAMC claims the drone will be used to protect QAqA’s airspace.
The drone, a 5-foot (1.5-meter) drone with a 4-foot-wide (1 meter) wingspan, will have a maximum range of 150 miles (250 kilometers), according to QAACC.
It’s been developed in cooperation with the University of California Berkeley, a U. of C. professor, and other academics from around the world.
The drones are being built at the University’s Center for Aerospace and Electronic Engineering (CAE) at UC Berkeley, and they are expected to be operational within a few months.
The QAAQA said that it hopes to launch the drone by the end of the year, and QAAAC plans to release more details about the drone’s specifications shortly.
The drone will operate in airspace designated as “QAA” or “Qatari airspace.”
It will be able to detect and identify air traffic by looking for any objects that might interfere with the aircraft’s flight path.
The system will also identify any objects near the drone and notify QAAs officials.
The technology can be used “in an emergency situation when it is essential to protect the airspace or airspace is in danger,” the QAAAS said in a statement.
The FAA is monitoring the development, and is working to ensure that QAA has the right technology for the job.
