UTM Convention 2016 is not like the other drone shows out there.

The UTM Convention 2016 agenda is designed to educate attendees on all things UAS Traffic Management, and only UAS Traffic Management (UTM). With 30 hours of education spread out over three days (Nov. 8-10, 2016), including a private tour of New York’s FAA-designated UAS test site featuring large UAS demonstrations, 10 breakout sessions tailored to aviation professionals’ unique interests, and access to top leaders in the field, UTM Convention 2016 is the only show UTM professionals need this fall.

Like the drone industry itself, the agenda is evolving to meet attendees' needs. The programming allows participants to customize their experiences to get the most out of their time in Syracuse. Here is a sampling of what UTM Convention 2016 has to offer:

  • Collaborating for UTM: How NASA and the FAA are Working Together
  • UTM Command and Control and Vehicle Tracking: Spectrum Considerations
  • International Approaches for UTM and Vehicle Assurance
  • Drone Advisory Committee (DAC): Progress, Priorities, and Next Steps
  • Counter-UAS Concepts and Technologies
  • Future of Industry Innovation to Enable UTM
  • Low Altitude Weather Monitoring for UTM Operations
  • Update from the FAA COE: What Does Research Tell Us Thus Far?
  • UTM Vehicle Technologies
  • Regional Needs: How Localities Can Help with Positive UAS Value While Keeping Privacy and Other Concerns in Mind
  • …And more!
