The Unmanned Traffic Management Convention 2016 will be held at the Oncenter, Syracuse, on November 8th, 9th and 10th, hosting over 500 air traffic professionals. The convention will showcase the latest advances in unmanned aircrafts such as drones and how they will be integrated into the nation’s airspace.
The convention will showcase discussions on unmanned aerial systems, capabilities, management and challenges. A demonstration of an Indago quadcopter, a Desert Hawk II, K-MAX and S-76 helicopters will be remotely operated at Griffiss International Airport.
The growth of unmanned aircraft will increase rapidly in the coming years, with operations such as search and rescue, power and rail line inspections, disaster relief, media and agricultural surveillance being possibilities of their use. However, Syracuse reports that safety is still an issue regarding the integration of drones in national airspace as accidents are a high possibility without the aid of a pilot to avoid other aircraft.
