1.1 How about regulations that hinder the deployment of innovation, e.g. drones flying above habited zones?

Drones are not a specific requirement in the PCP, but tenderers are free to suggest such elements as part of an innovative solution. It is the tenderer’s obligation to discuss the feasibility of the proposed approach and propose a solution that can be implemented (tested in phase III of the PCP) and complies with requirements imposed by national/regional laws and regulations. Please note that the feasibility of the proposed approach is expected to be one of the award criteria for the tender.
