2018 FAA UAS Symposium

The UAS Symposium provides attendees with the opportunity to engage face-to-face with a cross-section of government and industry leaders and innovators about the latest industry developments, regulations, research, and other initiatives to safely integrate UAS into the National Airspace System (NAS). Based on the survey results from last year’s Symposium, this year’s program will focus on initiatives to meet the technical challenges facing UAS operations and industry partnerships to safe integration.

What not to miss

  • Speaker and workshop sessions covering today’s hot topics – air traffic automation, remote identification and tracking, and expanded operations
  • Back by popular demand, the FAA will staff a Resource Center throughout the event, with subject matter experts available to provide one-on-one technical support regarding authorizations, waivers, Part 107 requirements, policies, and regulations.
