Executive Management Panel Discussion: Integration of Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) in the National Airspace System (NAS): A Global Perspective
(Session Code: ATC3001)
Room 6E 1:30 p.m.
The greatest challenge facing the realization of th efull potential of a civil Unmanned Aircraft Systems industry is the development of procedures and technologies to facilitate their safe operation in non-segregated airspace. UAS could be considered the first in a wave of new airspace users, ranging from personal air vehicles to reusable sub-orbital aircraft. These airspace esers will utilize airspace in fundamentally new ways and the challenge for regulators is to integrate their operations whilst continuing to meet safety, efficiency, and environmental expectations. This panel session will highlight the key issues, international programs exploring UAS integration, and discuss the broader challenges of integrating UAS into the Air Traffic Management System.
