Mr. Epperson serves on the national ASTM F38 standards-writing committee for the unmanned aircraft systems industry, serves on NASA’s UTM Sense-and-Avoid Working Group and is a frequent conference speaker on drone technology and safety topics throughout the US.
“Remote ID is an emerging technology that will be very important to the commercial drone industry over the next several years. It is a key enabling technology for ensuring public safety and for allowing authorization of advanced drone flights including beyond visual line-of-sight flying, flights over people and the future of Unmanned Traffic Management (UTM),” said Epperson.
The webinar will address several essential Remote ID technology, regulatory and business questions:
- What is Remote ID?
- Why does Remote ID matter to commercial drone operators?
- What is the current status of Remote ID regulations and likely technical industry requirements?
- What will the adoption of Remote ID technology mean for the future development of the industry?
Vigilant Aerospace is the leading developer of detect-and-avoid and airspace management software for uncrewed aircraft systems (UAS or drones). The company’s product, FlightHorizon, is based on two NASA patents and uses data from multiple sources to display a real-time picture of the air traffic around a UAS and to provide automatic avoidance maneuvers to prevent collisions. The software is designed to meet industry technical standards, to provide automatic safety and to allow UAS to safely fly beyond the sight of the pilot. The software has won multiple industry awards and the company has had contracts and users at NASA, the FAA, the U.S. Department of Defense and with a variety of drone development programs.
