Avionics to Host UAS Webinar

By Tish Drake | January 5, 2011

Avionics Magazine will bring together a panel of unmanned aircraft systems (UAS) experts to discuss the challenges to integration of these systems to the National Airspace System (NAS) in a Feb. 23 Webinar.

The hour-long Webinar, called "UAS Civil Airspace Integration: Progress and Challenges,"  will address the status of UAS integration in civil airspace; FAA's strategy and timeframe for introducing UAS in the NAS; the state of the art in “sense-and-avoid” technology for UAS; UAS manufacturers response to new requirements; and applications and the potential market for civilian UAS. This interactive online event will take place Feb. 23 at noon EST.

Speakers on the panel include John S. Walker, president, JS Walker Group Aviation Solutions; Andy Lacher, UAS Integration Lead and Research Strategist, MITRE’s Center for Advanced Aviation System Development (CAASD); and Rose Karolenko Mooney, director of engineering, AAI Corp. The panel will be moderated by Avionics Editor in Chief Bill Carey.
