UAS Leaders Collaborate For Innovation at NUAIR Industry Days
Wednesday, September 23, 2015
The second annual NUAIR Alliance Industry Days brought together unmanned aerial systems (UAS) experts and speakers for a series of exhibits, flight demos, and discussions filled with the latest news and trends within the growing UAS industry.
Congressman Frank LoBiondo, chairman of the House Aviation Subcommittee, talked about his efforts in Congress to safely integrate UAS into the National Airspace System and the importance on passing a long-term FAA reauthorization bill that fosters growth and innovation while maintaining the strongest commitment to safety.
The event’s keynote address was given by Lisa Ellman, a leading public policy lawyer for the Washington D.C. firm of Hogan Lovell, where Ellman co-chairs the firm's unmanned aircraft systems (UAS) Group. Additionally, she worked on high-priority policy initiatives for the Obama Administration including domestic use of UAS. Ellman stressed the importance of UAS innovators working with policy makers to find the right solutions for smarter and safer UAS technology. “The only way the UAS industry will succeed to its full potential is if policy makers and innovators collaborate on safety issues.”
