White House Hosting ‘Workshop on Drones and the Future of Aviation’


On Tuesday, Aug. 2, the White House’s Office of Science and Technology Policy (OSTP) says it will be “celebrating the potential” of unmanned aircraft systems (UAS) technology by hosting a drone-focused workshop.

According to a White House blog, the “Workshop on Drones and the Future of Aviation” event will focus on the following topics: “the near and long-term implications of unmanned aircraft as an emergent technology; issues related to airspace integration; the potential of unmanned aircraft to enable high-impact research, create new jobs and industries, save lives, and improve the way government agencies and companies do business; and potential ways to further address safety, security, and privacy.”

The event, which will convene “government, academic and industry stakeholders,” says the blog, will be available for viewing on White House Live.
