VERONA – The 2019 New York UAS Symposium brings together those who work with unmanned aircraft systems to discuss investment and development, as well as issues facing the industry.
The second annual event, hosted by Northeast UAS Airspace Integration Research (NUAIR), was held at Turning Stone Resort and Casino in Verona Sept. 16 -18, 2019. NUAIR manages the operations at the New York UAS test site at Griffiss International Airport in Rome.
"We've flown everything from half-pound little quad copter that you fly indoors, to twin engine general aviation aircraft turn into unmanned aircraft," said Tony Basile, chief operations officer at NUAIR, which has been an FAA test site since 2013. "So it's not just drones, it's command and control links, it's counter drone technology there’s all kind of aspects, payloads, sensors; we test everything."
The symposium features panel discussions, breakout sessions and keynote speakers. This year’s speakers included Capt. Houston Mills, vice president of flight and operations safety at UPS, and Jamie Winders, director of the Autonomous Systems Policy Institute at Syracuse University, among others.
Featured topics included urban air mobility, remote identification and counter-drone technology.
