AUVSI - NATO, DOD & TTCP to convene

Strict Standards: Only variables should be passed by reference in /home/defensef/public_html/components/com_zone/handleHTML.php on line 623
: 04 June, 2008  (Company News)
On Monday, June 9, the Association for Unmanned Vehicle Systems International (AUVSI), in cooperation with NATO, DoD and TTCP, will host a day-long workshop to address standards for Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) to address four areas for UAS standards: Interoperability and Standardization; Airspace Management; Payload and Sensor Integration; and Frequency Spectrum Management.
As demand for UAS increases the lack of widely accepted standards for air space use and frequency spectrum is affecting development and design often resulting in higher development costs and delays in program development.

This workshop will provide the means for a high level of interaction across a very broad audience. There are many stakeholders in the discussion and the employment of UAS standards. Many nations, states, agencies and industries are pursuing a better understanding of the utility of standards for UAS and how they can be invoked and matured. The workshop will bring these parties together and provide a record of the proceedings which will serve as an aide for those who continue to be engaged with the use and development of UAS standards.

“Customers, in many cases governments, want UAS that meet their requirements for a good value,” says Bob Brown, Past-President of AUVSI’s Capital Chapter. “Standards can be useful in achieving interoperability or commonality… but the full cost and benefit for invoking individual standards should be clearer.”

An online dialogue was opened for public input on UAS standards. Topics raised on this forum will shape the program for the workshop. At the conclusion of the workshop, participants will receive an email ballot to vote on the most pressing standards, the best ideas, and overall relevance of the discussion. An analysis will be conducted following the ballot.

The workshop will be held at the San Diego Convention Center in Room 28 from 8:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. on Monday, June 9, 2008. Registration for this event is open to the public and is $175. Registration is located in the Hall G Lobby of the San Diego Convention Center. Media registration for this event is complimentary with valid credentials; to register for the workshop or AUVSI’s Unmanned Systems North America 2008 please contact Alysa Reich at +1 703 677 1400 or
