NASA's efforts to define a UAS traffic management (UTM) system have been ongoing for many years now. How has NASA worked with the FAA to enable where things are right now with UTM? What will it mean to further enable this technology and system in 2022 and beyond? Who can industry work with to best support the evolution of the airspace?
There is no one better to answer these sorts of questions than Dr. Parimal Kopardekar, better known across the drone industry as PK, whose work as NASA's Principal Investigator for UTM has been foundational when it comes to safely enabling new entrants like drones into the airspace. Come with questions and listen to his answers about how far we've come and where we still need to go with UTM.
