The FAA's vision for fully integrating UAS into the National Airspace System (NAS) entails UAS operating harmoniously, side-by-side with manned aircraft, occupying the same airspace and using many of the same air traffic management systems and procedures.

Realizing this vision requires collaboration across industry, government, and academia. You can read about some of the FAA's major partnerships and initiatives below.
