Unmanned aircraft systems (UAS) are changing the way we approach business opportunities and challenges across the aviation industry. In this webinar we examine the current state of this technology with a specific focus on Europe.
UAS operations can benefit commercial and public users in many ways and it is safe to say that technology has outpaced the regulations. Unlike the U.S., Europe is currently not harmonized in terms of regulation of UAS.
The webinar will explore new developments shaping the industry in the areas of commercial and public operation of UAS, keeping an eye on the current status of regulation.
Areas of consideration will be UAS business cases and also look in the recent developments of Counter-UAS and Cyber Security worldwide.
