Navigating the Regulatory Landscape Towards BVLOS Operations

Learn about the regulations affecting Beyond Visual Line of Sight (BVLOS) drone flight and the factors involved in successfully navigating the regulatory environment to achieve a waiver. As the commercial drone industry grows there is an increasing need for drones to fly longer distances and reduce operational costs across a wide-range of industries. Join us for a discussion with aviation policy expert, Trever Linn, on what operators should expect before applying for a waiver, and the key components such as risk mitigation measures and CONOPS documentation necessary for approvals. Attendees will learn about current regulatory challenges, readily available solutions, and the path forward for BVLOS drone operations.

NASA’s Vision and Role to Enable Urban Air Mobility

NASA Aeronautics is focused on enabling the future of flight through long-term, game changing advanced research, concept exploration, and technology development. Through partnership with universities and industry, NASA has been on the front lines of enabling UAS operations – both small UAS operating at low altitude with the original invention of the UAS Traffic Management System and for large UAS operating in higher altitude airspace with definitive flight experiments to validate key standards, such as Detect and Avoid. AUVSI’s Brian Wynne will host a discussion with Mr. Pearce about his full vision for future aviation, including what the next 50 years of commercial airline travel has in store and the first 50 years of Urban Air Mobility.

Speakers:
Mr. Robert Pearce – Associate Administrator for ARMD, NASA
Mr. Brian Wynne – President & CEO, AUVSI (Host)

How to Scale Drone Workflows for Architecture, Engineering, and Construction Operations

For industry professionals spanning across architecture, engineering, and construction (AEC)–integrating drone programs into their business operations is now a common practice. Drones bring much needed clarity to their day-to-day work, helping oversee the finer details of the project site, improve collaboration across teams, and reduce overall project costs.

ArcGIS provides a scalable, enterprise, drone operations platform for planning, processing, mapping, and analysis. For users like Skanska, organizations can do more by leveraging automation and delivering information faster to enhance the decision-making process.

Attend this webinar to learn about Esri’s Site Scan for ArcGIS with workflows that benefit Skanska, the AEC market, and other industries as a whole

Speakers:

Jeremiah Johnson - Business Development, Imagery - Esri

Øystein Løvoll - Survey Manager - Skanska Norway

Anders Avlesen - Geospatial Specialist - Skanska Norway

Enhancing UAS Flight Safety Through 3D Multi-Sensor Visualization

In this presentation, Kongsberg Geospatial's Paige Cutland examines how UAS flight safety for BVLOS operations can be improved by visualizing the mission using fusion of data inputs from multiple sensors to create an accurate real-time picture of the airspace. While vendors typically try to sell a single radar or sensor as a solution for flight safety or collision avoidance, the reality is that flight safety and operational confidence can be dramatically improved by integrating and examining inputs from multiple sensors. Mr. Cutland will also discuss how 3D visualization is being used to improve operator safety for fleet operations and semi-autonomous flight operations.
