Vigilant Aerospace Systems is presenting a webinar titled “Remote ID for Commercial Unmanned Aircraft: What Is It, How Does It Work and Why Does It Matter?” The webinar will be on Wednesday, October 23, 2019 at 12:00 PM CT.
Hosted by the UAS Cluster Initiative of Oklahoma and Kansas, the 30-minute webinar will feature a 15-minute presentation by Kraettli L. Epperson, CEO of Vigilant Aerospace Systems, followed by a 15-minutes for participant Q&A. The webinar is open to anyone who registers to attend.
“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.
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.
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?
The number of participants in the webinar is limited. Register now to attend.
