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:
To kick off the event on Tuesday, Nov. 8, attendees are invited to an open house hosted by NUAIR and Lockheed Martin at Griffiss International Airport, NY's FAA-designated UAS test site. There, attendees will gain access to an exclusive tour of the command center and a UAS demonstration of multiple large and small UAS that are currently used in firefighting and personnel search /extraction events. Flight demonstrations will include the Indago quadcopter and Desert Hawk III fixed wing UAVs and optionally piloted versions of the K-MAX and S-76, both full scale helicopters. Other events include a welcome reception on Wednesday, Nov. 9, at the Carrier Dome, featuring a UAS Sense and Avoid challenge.
Register now and join NASA, the FAA and their designated test sites, organizations like Amazon Prime Air, Facebook, IBM, Raytheon, AirMap, and Gryphon Sensors, and international air navigation service providers to usher in the next era of aviation.
