Vigilant Aerospace Systems will be joining unmanned aircraft systems industry professionals at the upcoming 2nd Annual Emerging Aviation Technology Conference hosted by the Choctaw Nation of Oklahoma this Thursday, April 18th in Durant, Oklahoma.
The Emerging Aviation Technology Conference will feature several nationally-prominent speakers from the White House, NASA, FAA and industry experts will participate in the conference, which will focus on the Federal Aviation Administration’s (FAA’s) Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) Integration Pilot Program (IPP) progress as well as future aviation technology opportunities such as urban air mobility (i.e. – “flying air taxis”).
Vigilant Aerospace Systems is a member of the UAS IPP teams in North Dakota and Alaska.

About the UAS Integration Pilot Program
The UAS Integration Pilot Program is the FAA’s premiere program focusing on evaluating and testing technologies and methodologies for advanced UAS operational concepts in order to safely and efficiently integrate unmanned aircraft into the national airspace.
In May 2018, United States Department of Transportation Secretary Elaine L. Chao announced ten UAS IPP sites in the nation representing a mix of states, counties, cities and tribes. The Choctaw Nation of Oklahoma (CNO) was one of the ten IPP sites that were selected as well as the only tribal government lead participant.
