"The agenda the program committee has assembled combines the perspective of regional UAS personnel with the regulatory insight of national UAV entities, while offering attendees a glimpse into the commercial realities and major economic opportunities present in Texas," says Luke Geiver, program director for the UAS Summit and editor of UAS Magazine.
The 2016 program will provide in-depth analysis and timely presentations from 75-plus speakers focused on the following for both small and large unmanned aircraft systems:
A sample of the current speaker panels include:
- Oil and Gas (major exploration and production companies, U.S. refiners, service providers)
- Emergency Response (Local fire and police departments from Dallas, Austin and San Antonio)
- Texas State Agencies that use or plan to use UAS
- Aerospace Majors
- UAV Industry Focused Panel -- businesses that development/make/sell UAS
- Research and Development -- from platforms to flight systems
- Regional, National Legal Landscape
- FAA Insight
- State Leader Visions
"The state of Texas has recently had an increase in UAS training and research and is now reaching new commercial and operational heights," says John Nelson, director of marketing and sales of UAS Magazine. "This activity, as well as the sheer size of Texas, is helping the state emerge as a hotbed for current and future UAS activity and is why we believe Austin, Texas is a perfect location to have an event that connects commercial, private, state-based and national entities focused on all things UAS."
Gary Sera, director of Texas A&M Engineering Extension Service (TEEX), adds, "We're excited about the opportunity to partner with the Lone Star UAS Center of Excellence & Innovation to sponsor what will be a national event showcasing UAS training, research, and innovations taking place in Texas and the Texas A&M University System."
