Due to ongoing concerns caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, and for the health and safety of the unmanned aviation community, we have made the decision to host the 5th Annual FAA UAS Symposium virtually instead of in-person in Baltimore.
Recognizing the value of this symposium to driving engagement between the commercial UAS industry and the FAA, we are confirming a series of virtual events that will address the important content already planned for this year's program.
The first will take place in early summer with a focus on UTM and international UAS integration. The second will take place in late summer with a focus on updates to the Integration Pilot Program (IPP) and public safety operations. Additional details will be shared with the community as soon as they are finalized.
- If you are already registered for the 5th Annual FAA UAS Symposium, you will receive a separate message in the coming weeks to confirm your options for participation in the virtual events.
- If you were selected as a speaker for the 5th Annual FAA UAS Symposium, you will receive a separate message from our Industry Education team to confirm your participation and any schedule changes.
As we work to shift how we gather this year, we also acknowledge and applaud the many first responders, remote pilots, and commercial partners who are safely using UAS to respond to this crisis, as well as the manufacturers who have shifted their capacity to support production of critical personal protective equipment.
If you have any immediate questions, please contact us at [email protected] for more information. Thank you for your patience and understanding as we work to find a path forward for the symposium.
