SkyTalk Live streaming Drone Enable – ICAO’s Unmanned Aircraft Systems Industry Symposium

Drone Enable Conference Live Stream

Welcome to #DroneEnable, ICAO’s Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) Industry Symposium being held from 22 to 23 September 2017 in Montréal, Canada.

The symposium will provide a unique opportunity for States, international organizations, industry, academia and other stakeholders to share their research, best practices and lessons learned related to unmanned aircraft system traffic management systems (UTM). Attention will be given to defining a framework for a UAS traffic management (UTM) environment. Key supporting functions, such as a registration system, ability to remotely identify and track unmanned aircraft (UA), communications systems and geofencing-like systems, will be included.

DRONE ENABLE​ will be an opportunity for networking, collaboration and coordination between States, industry, and both new and existing stakeholders as we move forward in this dynamic new field.
