The International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) will be hosting the First Unmanned Aircraft Systems Industry Symposium (UAS2017) from 22 to 23 September 2017 at its Headquarters in Montréal, Canada.
The symposium will provide a unique opportunity for States, international organizations, industry, academia and other stakeholders to share their research, best practices and lessons learned related to unmanned aircraft system traffic management systems (UTM). Speakers will be selected from submissions in response to the UTM Request for Information (RFI) contained on the link . Maturity of proposed solutions, potential for global application as well as supporting infrastructure requirements will be factored into the speaker selection process.
Attention will be given to defining a framework for a UAS traffic management (UTM) environment. Key supporting functions, such as a registration system, ability to remotely identify and track unmanned aircraft (UA), communications systems and geofencing-like systems, will be included.
ICAO UAS2017 will be an opportunity for networking, collaboration and coordination between States, industry, and both new and existing stakeholders as we move forward in this dynamic new field.
