The constant rise of remotely piloted aircraft questions the actual need for conventional helicopters. By making helicopter pilots optional, what does it mean for the future of the industry?

Frost & Sullivan’s Aerospace & Defense expert Industry Analyst Alix Leboulanger will discuss innovation breakouts in helicopters industry and assess key technological programs readiness levels as well as market opportunities and existing barriers.

The online conference will be followed by a live question-and-answer session and will take place on Thursday, 29 January, 2015 at 4 pm GMT/11 am EST.

The live presentation will answer the following questions for a global audience:

1) Why should the helicopter industry consider investing in optionally piloted helicopters (OPHs)?
2) Is the manned/unmanned convergence inevitable for OEMs?
3) What are some of the key features of OPHs that will drive adoption?
4) How will the products and trends surrounding OPHs evolve, leading up to its commercialization?
6) Are customers ready to purchase OPHs?
7) What are the main barriers to market penetration?

“The rise of unmanned aerial systems (UAS) and remotely piloted aircraft (RPA) is shaking the aviation industry, including helicopters. Recent research programs in North America and Europe have been looking at integrating unmanned aerial technology onto existing helicopters capabilities, hence developing a manned/unmanned capable platform, also called an Optionally Piloted Helicopter (OPH),” highlights Alix Leboulanger.
