The FAA (Federal Aviation Administration) and NASA (ational Aeronautics and Space Administration) will hold the UAS (Unmanned Aircraft Systems) Traffic Management Pilot Program Phase 2 Industry Workshop on 9 December. Building on UPP Phase 1, UPP Phase 2 will showcase additional technologies, including Remote Identification (ID) and operations with increasing volumes and density. The UPP’s success is dependent upon the ability to work with industry, various FAA Test Sites and IPP participants.
FAA and NASA Drone Industry Workshop
During this half-day workshop, the FAA and NASA will provide participants with an in-depth view of UPP Phase 2, including a walk-through of the Concept of Use, Architecture, Technical and Functional Requirements, and a detailed timeline. UPP Phase 2 partners should be able to support the following capabilities:
- UAS operations in high density airspace;
- Remote ID services;
- USS transmission of flight information to air traffic control due to an off-nominal UTM event;
- Public safety operations; and,
- UAS Volume Reservations (UVR) service.
Those interested in more details surrounding the agencies’ plan for partnering with industry for UPP can go to the registration website.
Registration will be on a first-come, first-served basis and limited to the first 150 registrants. Only two participants from the same organization may register. The registration deadlines are:
- Tuesday, November 12 for non-U.S. citizens without permanent residency. NASA requires special paperwork to admit all non-U.S. citizens without permanent residency to attend the workshop at Ames Research Center.
- Monday, November 25 for U.S. citizens and permanent residents; Please go to the registration website for more information.
