The 2019 International Conference on Unmanned Aircraft Systems, ICUAS'19, will be held on 11-14 June, in the Atlanta Marriott Buckhead Hotel and Conference Center which is situated in a supreme location in the heart of Atlanta. June 11 will be a Workshop/Tutorial full-day, followed by a three-day technical Conference on 12-14 June. The major themes of ICUAS'19 will be: design for trusted and assured autonomy, metrics for autonomy, and design for resilience. These focus area topics are center-stage in the attempt to design and build high-confidence UAS/RPAS. In addition, ICUAS'19 will include a separate track on regulations, policy, legal and ethical issues that are essential to allow for integration of UAS/RPAS in the national airspace. National and international organizations, agencies, industry, military and civilian authorities are working towards defining roadmaps of UAS/RPAS expectations, technical requirements and standards that are prerequisite to their full utilization, as well as legal, policy and ethical issues. The next generation of UAS/RPAS is expected to be used for a wide spectrum of civilian and public domain applications. Challenges to be faced and overcome include, among others, see-and-avoid systems, robust and fault-tolerant flight control systems, payloads, communications, levels of autonomy, manned-unmanned swarms, network-controlled swarms, as well as challenges related to policies, procedures, regulations, safety, risk analysis assessment, airworthiness, certification issues, operational constraints, standardization and frequency management, all of paramount importance, which, coupled with 'smart', 'environmentally friendly' cutting edge technologies will pave the way towards full integration of UAS/RPAS with manned aviation and into the respective national airspace.
