ICUAS 2015 - International Conference on Unmanned Aircraft Systems

From 9 Jun, 2015 08:00 until 12 Jun, 2015 18:00
Categories: Conferences

The 2015 ICUAS will be held on 9-12 June 2015 in the Mile High City, in Denver, CO. After meetings in Dubai, Philadelphia, Atlanta and Orlando, we decided to return to the beautiful city of Denver and the State of Colorado, in the heart of the Rocky Mountains. 9 June will be a Workshop/Tutorial day, followed by a three-day technical Conference.

ICUAS'15 aims to bring together different groups of qualified military and civilian representatives worldwide, organization representatives, funding agencies, industry and academia, to discuss the current state of UAS advances, and the roadmap to their full utilization in civilian and public domains. Special emphasis will be given to current and future research opportunities, and to 'what comes next' in terms of the essential technologies that need to be utilized to advance further UAS.

The next generation of UAS is expected to be used for a wide spectrum of civilian and public domain applications. Challenges to be faced and overcome include: see-and-avoid, sense-detect-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. As advances in these areas become a reality through 'smart', 'environmentally friendly' cutting edge technologies they will pave the way towards full integration of UAS with manned aviation and into the respective national airspace.

Through Keynote/Plenary addresses, invited and solicited presentations, and round table discussions, it is expected that the outcome of the Conference will be a better understanding of what industry, the military and civilian national and international authorities need, and what are the crucial next steps that need to be completed before UAS are widely accepted in everyday life applications.
