Vigilant Aerospace CEO Kraettli Epperson is discussing “The Future of Drone Sense-and-Avoid Technology” as a panelist at the upcoming 2017 InterDrone International Drone Conference and Exposition in Las Vegas in September.

Panel Session: The Future of Drone Sense-and-Avoid Technology

Wednesday, September 6th 4:15 PM – 5:00 PM

Moderators: Michael Blades, Research Director, Frost & Sullivan Panelists:  Kraettli L. Epperson, CEO, Vigilant Aerospace Systems Peter Esser, Head of Government Affiars, NXP Simiconductors UAS Trent Lukaczyk, Co-Founder and CTO, FlightWave Aerospace Adam Robertson, CTO, Fortem Technologies   Sense-and-avoid technology will play an essential role in integrating UAVs into the National Airspace System (NAS), ensuring a reliable and safe flightpath. This technology will also assist in expanding flights beyond line of sight, which the FAA currently prohibits and essentially constrains the distance of flights. The use cases for sense-and-avoid technology are obvious; find out what will happen next as it continues to develop.
