NASA UTM 2015: The Next Era of Aviation

The NASA Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS) Traffic Management Convention or UTM 2015, was held July 28-30 at NASA Ames Research Center at Moffett Field, California.

Attendees had a unique opportunity to engage in small group discussion and shape the future of low-altitude UAS traffic management.

NASA and the Silicon Valley Chapter of AUVSI co-hosted the convention in anticipation of the widespread increase in unmanned aircraft.

The three-day event brought together a broad international and U.S. audience of government and civilian representatives including leaders from industry, and academia to discuss, understand, and define the UAS impact and challenges ahead.

The panel speakers discussed low altitude traffic management with reference to:
  • Policy issues, including privacy, safety and security
  • Emerging markets and operations
  • Strategies for low-altitude traffic management
  • International perspectives

Welcome from Dr. Parimal Kopardekar, Project Manager of Safe Autonomous System Operations Project.

Welcome from Dr. Jaiwon Shin, NASA Associate Administrator for the Aeronautics Research Mission Directorate.

Welcome from Jesse Kallman, President Silicon Valley AUVSI

Introduction from Joseph Rios, NASA UTM Project Lead
