Description

Register now - the deadline to register is September 20. This conference is open to agencies with an interest relating to drone use.

In June, the Department of Transportation’s Federal Aviation Administration finalized the first operational rules for routine commercial use of small unmanned aircraft systems (UAS or “drones”), opening pathways towards fully integrating UAS into the nation’s airspace. These new regulations work to harness new innovations safely, to spur job growth, advance critical scientific research and save lives. - FAA.gov

In the nine months since the Federal Aviation Administration created a drone registration system, more than 550,000 unmanned aircraft have been registered with the agency, said Earl Lawrence, director of the FAA's drone office. Speaking at the first meeting of a new government-industry drone advisory committee, Lawrence said new registrations are coming in at a rate of 2,000 a day. By comparison, the FAA says there are 260,165 manned aircraft registered in the U.S. - Newsday.com

This conference will cover a range of topics:

  • Federal Aviation Administration laws and FAA Certificates of Authorization
  • Incident management - UAS operations
  • Media use of umanned aircraft on incidents, and agencies sharing footage with media
  • Education and research involving unmanned aircraft incident usages
