The DEMAND for UNMANNED® UAS symposium brings UAS and aviation system stakeholders together to discuss and collaborate on research challenges and advancement strategies. Engineers, researchers, developers, pilots, and regulators from academia, government, and industry will explore how unmanned systems are catalysts for autonomy, robotics, and machine intelligence, and how they are transforming the nature of civil and military aviation. With more than 2,000 participants from nearly 40 countries, discover cutting-edge technologies that will advance UAS developments and missions.
The Evolving Culture of Aviation (Jesse Kallman, Commercial UAS, Airbus)
Tuesday, 6 June 2017, 0930-1130 hrs
We’ve seen a dramatic increase in “new entrants” to global airspace systems. The demand for unmanned and the need to accommodate unmanned aircraft systems has gone up as commercial and recreational opportunities are enabled by rapidly evolving technology. Similarly, commercial space operations are growing, and researchers are envisioning even more disruptive technologies, such as personal air transportation solutions. Regulators and operators must perform a delicate balancing act: accommodating dramatic changes in the users and types of uses of airspace, while maintaining the safety and security of the system. Key stakeholders on both sides will discuss ho new users are adapting their solutions to meet safety and certification criteria, how our current systems and processes can be modified to more easily accommodate these rapid changes while also maintaining safety and efficiency.
