SkyLive DRONE ENABLE Streaming: ICAO’s Third Unmanned Aircraft Systems Symposium

2,261

Welcome to the page where we will live stream the Third DRONE ENABLE Industry Symposium as it is taking place at ICAO Headquarters from 12 to 14 November 2019.  Though we broadcast all of the presentations on YouTube Live with SkyLive, you can follow the broadcasts on this page by scrolling below to the event playlists.

This Symposium will bring together key stakeholders in the unmanned aviation sector to exchange research, best practices, lessons learned and respective challenges. Attention will be given to complex issues related to the introduction of unmanned aircraft systems (UAS) and UAS traffic management (UTM). The aircraft registry network, which ICAO has spearheaded, will be discussed, along with cyber issues, information management, uncertificated unmanned aircraft (UA) operations in high seas airspace, operations above FL600, rules of the air and so many other important topics.

The symposium will look at the commercial and non-commercial activities that are rapidly evolving in this sector of the aviation industry. Existing technologies, and ongoing research and development will also be showcased, and participants will have valuable networking opportunities.

If you are not able to attend this event, we would encourage you to catch all of the recordings that will become available as the sessions occur. All of the SkyLive video presentations are being made available for on-demand viewing on this page thanks to UNIFLY – with their support, we are able to live stream the presentations as they are taking place!

The DroneEnable 2019 SkyLive stream is enabled by UNIFLY. Unifly is the global leader in Unifly Unmanned Traffic Management (UTM). Their platform connects authorities with pilots to integrate drones into the airspace safely. BLIP, their tracker and e-Identification device, acts as an electronic license plate for drones.

Unmanned Aircraft Systems Impact on ADS-B: A discussion on the ICAO State Letter providing guidance on the negative impacts of saturating the existing ADS-B system (1090 MHz spectrum) and the potential need to limit the use of ADS-B out on small UAS operated at low altitudes. Presentation from Marc Kegelaers, CEO – Unifly.


#DroneEnable Tuesday, November 12th (13:45 – 15:00)
Trust framework

Providing identification and integrity for global interoperability while managing change and growth. Future challenges of aviation in connectivity and cybersecurity, covering remote ID and global drone registry concepts, as well as the collaboration of actors to build a trust framework. This session will cover the entire ecosystem of digital (unmanned) aviation addressing global and national authority, telecommunication, manufacturer and UTM service provider(s).


#DroneEnable Tuesday, November 12th (15:30 – 17:00)
Information Management

How can information management meet the requirements of the UAS community to ensure that the required information (including aeronautical, geospatial, meteorological, flight and flow, security, etc.) is valid, current and accurate, and made readily available in support of drone operations?


#DroneEnable Stream A: Wednesday, November 12th (9:00 – 10:30)
USS Organizational Construct and Approval Processes

This session will consider potential certification requirements for UTM Service Providers, whether they should be held to similar standards as ATM Service Providers, what standards would need to be applied if certifying a USS, and what organizations would develop such standards.


#DroneEnable Stream B: Wednesday, November 12th (9:00 – 10:30)
Deconfliction and Separation Management

Deconfliction and separation management are key tenants of aviation safety that apply equally to unmanned aviation. This session will explore these considerations including the processes, procedures and associated tools to support strategic and tactical separation management, and the development of separation and CNS standards.


#DroneEnable Stream A: Wednesday, November 12th (11:00 – 12:30)
USS Organizational Construct and Approval Processes (continued)

This session will consider potential certification requirements for UTM Service Providers, whether they should be held to similar standards as ATM Service Providers, what standards would need to be applied if certifying a USS, and what organizations would develop such standards.


#DroneEnable Stream B: Wednesday, November 12th (11:00 – 12:30)
Deconfliction and Separation Management (continued)

The discussions continue from the earlier session: deconfliction and separation management are key tenants of aviation safety that apply equally to unmanned aviation. This session will explore these considerations including the processes, procedures and associated tools to support strategic and tactical separation management, and the development of separation and CNS standards.


#DroneEnable Wednesday, November 12th (13:45 – 15:30)
Risk Assessment and Contingency Operations, Presentation from DJI

This session will focus on key principles of UTM risk management (strategic, tactical and contingency/emergency) and aims to clarify what should be considered when establishing a “UTM risk assessment model”. Presenters will discuss both current ATM risk management and novel proposals in UTM and UAS risk management and how these can be used to facilitate hazard management in the context of UTM.


#DroneEnable Wednesday, November 12th (16:00 – 17:30)
Industry Successes

At DRONE ENABLE/1, industry and regulators recognized the urgent need for a UAS identification standard that would be flexible enough to meet the diverse needs of States yet specific enough to allow manufacturers to build products to be operated globally. In this panel, experts will discuss the substantial progress made in this area, and additional steps that may be required to achieve global acceptance of the new standards. Included as part of this panel will be a live demonstration showing one example of how the new standards could be used to provide a secure, flexible, and globally interoperable identification system.


#DroneEnable Thursday, November 14th (9:00 – 10:10)
Operational Experiences

This session will identify the issues and challenges related to beyond visual line-of-sight operations and provide insight to assist all States in facilitating such operations.


#DroneEnable Thursday, November 14th (10:40 – 12:45)
UAS Operations, Cooperative Separation of Stratospheric Ops, Presentation by Meituan

UAS Operations Over the High Seas: Many States and UAS operators are interested in, or are already conducting, UAS operations over the high seas. However, under the current regulatory regime, such operations must be approved by the State of Registry and be conducted in accordance with ICAO Annex 2— Rules of the Air which clearly states that “these rules apply without exception”. This panel will discuss the challenges of, and potential solutions to, enabling uncertificated UA operations in high seas airspace.

Cooperative Separation of Stratospheric Operations:  As the development of UTM moves forward enabling various unmanned aircraft operations at low altitude, how can UTM principles be applied to the management of high-level airspace above current commercial flight trajectories? Industry operators will share their collaboration as they work together to foster industry-based cooperative separation at high altitudes; discuss how regulators could enable UTM at high altitude; and what cooperation with ANSPs would look like.


#DroneEnable Thursday, November 14th (14:15 – 16:30)
Flight Rules, Drone Enable/3 Recap and Next Steps

Flight Rules: UAS and their associated technology are introducing new aviation challenges not foresee even a few years ago. One challenge pertains to the flight rules – instrument and visual – which have provided for effective airspace management for many years. This panel will discuss whether the current flight rules are sufficient, whether they should be modified or if a new set of flight rules is necessary.

DRONE ENABLE/3 RECAP: Looking back at the presentations and related discussions, what are the key points that garnered support? Can we begin to define solutions? Can we identify the critical information streams needed to enable such a dynamic system? How do we use the information provided during DRONE ENABLE/3 to further the framework developed from previous DRONE ENABLE activities?
