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.
Registration ($95) is required and includes a Networking Lunch. You can bundle and save $50 by attending the Droneport Seminar + the Tech Forum.
