11:40 AM – Airspace Management in Droneport DevelopmentSpeaker: Kraettli L. Epperson, CEO, Vigilant Aerospace Systems, Inc. About the session: Setting up a droneport can be a complex process, especially when complying with standards and regulations, managing FAA authorizations and providing responsible airspace management. Flying drones near controlled airspace or beyond visual line-of-sight requires unmanned aircraft operators to be able to detect-and-avoid other aircraft and to maintain well-clear distances. This session will help you begin to understand and address these challenges with the strategies, processes and technical solutions available to implement safe and compliant airspace management for your droneport.
About the DronePort NetworkThe DronePort Network is a new national, professional development and trade organization established by the UAS Cluster Initiative of Oklahoma and Kansas which is designed to aid in the development of both public and private sector UAS programs. The network is a resource to professionals, including those designing and building public and private sector programs and public-private partnerships that are intended to create economic impact in a community or region and to improve public safety in that community or region through the use of unmanned aircraft.

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.
