Interactive Workshop Confirmed

Beyond Intellectual Line of Sight (BILOS) – Anticipating the Future of Comm, Nav, and Surveillance

Moderator: Bob Etris (Evans Inc.)


  • Victoria Cox, Veracity
  • Chris Corgnati, PAE ISR
  • Jim Stroiney, FAA

Chairs: L. Sherry (George Mason University), D. Ponchak (NASA), Beth Zimmerman (Evans Inc.)

While drones and periodic commercial space operations dominate the headlines, how do we step back to more strategically anticipate what the next 20 years of communication, navigation, and surveillance technologies could bring to the National Airspace System (NAS) and the broader aerospace industry?

Join a panel discussion and unique, interactive futures planning exercise to discuss this very topic. Hear select excerpts from industry research and insights that discuss the role of artificial intelligence, cybersecurity, unmanned systems, and commercial space opportunities will plan in impacting the NAS.

Explore these impacts across a range of topics such as safety management, certification, talent management, and the role of the human in an increasingly automated world.

Participate in a "world café" style set of discussions to examine these impacts across stakeholder communities – for engineers, solution providers, airports, operators, technicians, and managers or executives alike.

This session is guaranteed to open your eyes and mind to the possibilities of what "could be" and instill some of that creative thinking and planning in your day job after the workshop is done.
