is an umbrella term for technologies that can help airspace users and air
traffic services to be more aware of aircraft operating in the surrounding
airspace. The full adoption of EC technologies means that all users operating
in a designated block of airspace can be detected electronically.
and unmanned aircraft have equal rights to use UK airspace. UA are expected to
co-exist with manned aircraft, and EC is seen as the means for all aircraft to
be able to identify and respond to one another. EC can help to reduce the
number of mid-air collisions by increasing
the situational awareness of pilots and remote pilots.
development of EC solutions for UAS will be an evolutionary process and may
take several years for individual EC technologies to reach maturity. EC
solutions refer to devices, systems, and infrastructure that bring these
technologies together to market and ensure that they are interoperable.
guidance on electronic conspicuity can be found in CAP722 under the engineering and technical guidance section.

the EC devices can be found on our wider EC pages
