UAS Operations: "Dependable, Effective and Efficient?"
19 September 2012 - 20 September 2012 | London, UK
This year's UAS Annual Conference continues the tradition of getting the people that shape industry both in the UK and abroad together to share their thoughts, their perspectives and their visions for one of the world’s fastest growing industries – Unmanned Aircraft Systems.
The Conference, on 19-20 September 2012, will focus on the current application of UAS technology where existing organisations (military and civil) are finding innovative ways of augmenting their existing routine operations with UAS based operations. The challenge for these organisations is to answer the question; are these operations more dependable, effective and efficient as a consequence?
Regulation follows innovation, not the other way round. In Europe the progress towards understanding the regulation of UAS has taken a unique turn in that it is now widely recognised that small unmanned aircraft are a significant niche market which is growing extremely rapidly. Behind this is the inevitable race within research and development to provide the de-facto standard products upon which this industry will base itself in the future.
