The International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) will convene DRONE ENABLE, ICAO's Second Unmanned Aircraft Systems Industry Symposium (DRONE ENABLE/2) from 13 to 14 September 2018 in Chengdu, China. The theme of DRONE ENABLE/2 isUTM to ATM – transitioning from segregation to integration.
The symposium will bring together key stakeholders from industry, academia, government and international organizations in the aviation sector to exchange research, best practices, lessons learned and respective challenges. Attention will be given to the complex issues presented by unmanned aircraft system traffic management (UTM) which need to be addressed collectively in order to integrate UAS into the global aviation system.
Marc Kegelaers from Unifly will be part of the panel on "UTM/ATM Transitions from a Non-Traditional Perspective". This session will provide an opportunity to showcase selected submissions from experts that describe the challenges and critical issues encountered when aircraft, manned or unmanned, transition between a UTM and an ATM environment.
