Plenary Day 3, Part 2: UAS – From Hype to Reality

Moderated by Paul Bosman (EUROCONTROL) and Joe Morra (FAA)

Program Confirmed

Integrating unmanned aircraft systems (UAS) into busy, complex airspace is no small feat. But everything from developing new standards and regulations, to “unmanned traffic management,” to the CNS infrastructure needed to support integration, all comes down to risk management. This panel of experts will address various aspects of UAS integration in the context of how we ultimately manage operational risk, and how CNS technologies can support these efforts.

  • Setting the European Scene: Paul Bosman, EUROCONTROL
  • U.S. Integration Efforts: Joe Morra, FAA
  • Recent Operational Integration Efforts and the Role of CNS Technology: Randy Willis, FAA
  • UAS Standards Development Efforts, Gaps, and Challenges: Jim McCabe, ANSI
  • The Malicious Intruders and the Airport Protection Challenge!: Manfred Mohr, IATA
  • U-SPACE, the Austrian Way from Myth to Reality: Werner Langhans, Austrocontrol
  • UTM in Context: Davis Hackenberg, NASA
