SYRACUSE, N.Y., 27 Oct. 2016. The UTM Convention 2016, an Air Traffic Control Association (ATCA) event on unmanned traffic management (UTM) in Syracuse, New York, and HiddenGenius.com are partnering to launch a technology competition that demonstrates sense-and-avoid (SAA) technologies for unmanned aircraft systems (UAS), commonly called drones.

At ATCA’s UTM Convention, officials will hold a preliminary event intended to lead into a competition with a much larger prize, predicted to be $15,000, for tackling the critical challenge of UAS sensing and avoiding low-flying aircraft.

A video introducing the competition can be viewed online at http://ow.ly/V3TH305AMs6.

A preliminary competition will be held on 9 Nov. 2016 in conjunction with #UTMConvention 2016 at the Oncenter in Syracuse, N.Y.
