The Emerging Opportunities + Solutions For Civil + Commercial UAS To Be Presented By ASDEvents...

[SatNews] ASDEvents is presenting their "Civil & Commercial Unmanned Aerial Systems Symposium" from October 27th through the 28th in Washington, DC.

The markets for civil and commercial unmanned aircraft systems (UAS) or Unmanned Air Vehicles (UAVs) are poised to explode. UAS manufacturers who to date have been feeding the huge defense market are being joined by an ever increasing number of non-defense UAS platform and payload developers who are targeting the potentially enormous markets for civil and commercial capabilities. The application opportunities seem limitless. However, to make this happen, a whole range of regulatory, certification, insurance, safety, and management challenges have to be met.

This event brings together the thought-leaders and planners who will make civil and commercial UAS a reality. They will provide the latest information on government plans for UAS integration in the National Airspace (NAS). They will examine the most promising high-value applications – in everything from industrial security and perimeter monitoring, to border management, law enforcement, communications, search and rescue, disaster management, surveying, mapping, resource management – and beyond. They will give you a thorough understanding of the current technical capabilities and looming challenges.

  • What is the way ahead for UAS integration in the NAS?
  • What is the state of the science in airborne sense and avoid/collision avoidance systems and technologies? What new capabilities are needed? What’s on the drawing board?
  • How do you perform a financial risk assessment for your UAS project?
  • What are the insurance issues?
  • What is the status of state legislation on UAS overflight?
  • What are the emerging lessons learned from early UAS test sites?
  • Where are the real opportunities in the commercial market?
  • What about federal and state government market opportunities?
  • What are the insurance issues?

This comprehensive conference brings together key officials and representatives from both government and industry that will examine the recent developments, most critical capability gaps, and likely future direction for civil unmanned aircraft systems.
