Did you attend 2019 Robotica UAS Summit?

The AUVSI New England chapter would like to thank all the participants of our annual UAS Summit. We learned how to move from vision and planning, to execution and operations. This years UAS Summit brought major industry leaders providing their vision in compelling keynote presentations, and four engaging sessions. The sessions included Public Operations; Enablers; Counter-UAS; and Urban Air Mobility. 

There are a number of recent and current government initiatives intended to enable the rapid growth the US drone industry. These include the 2012 FAA UAS Test Sites, 2016 UAS Traffic Management Pilot Program (UTM PP), the recent 2017 UAS Integration Pilot Program (IPP), and the 2018 FAA Reauthorization Act. These activities seek to help participating entities drive rapid technology and applications development in the advancement of near future UAS markets. They have been met with varying success and adoption.

The commercial drone industry is calling out for more clearly defined opportunities to participate in and expand this new economy. The Robotica UAS Summit offered critical insights into real world opportunities and collaborative programs where vendors, developers and program managers can find resources and partners to advance the ecosystem, and their bottom line.

We look forward to actively engaging with you at next years UAS Summit,
and helping to operationalize your opportunity.

This year we year we added a pitch-fest for exhibitors and attendees as an opportunity to introduce their company or service in a single page, 3 minute format. We had nearly a dozen individuals take up the challenge, and we heard from startups, legacy firms and university researchers on a great variety of new & novel drone organizations. Given the success of this new feature, we look forward to expanding this into our future events.

Thank you again to this who made the day the success it was, and check back soon the learn about additional Robotica Events and other chapter meetings.
