Commercial Exploitation of UAS Technology: What can be achieved?


Date: 11 February 2016
Time: 16:00 - 19:30    Venue: Bird & Bird, 15 Fetter Lane London, EC4A 1JP


The UAS market is currently facing an interesting phase where the technology is evolving and there are new aerospace applications. However, there is still a substantial need for regulatory development in this area, with significant regulatory fragmentation remaining likely.

At a time when we're awaiting concrete proposals from the European Consultation, the seminar will analyse the current and future capability of the technology and address the regulatory environment and related legal issues that need to be straightened out if the technology vision is going to happen.
