Unmanned Aircraft Systems for Commercial Enterprise: A Primer on the Status, Practical and Legal Issues
Recorded on Tuesday, June 10, 2014:
1:00 - 2:30 pm Eastern US Time
For those of us in the business world, the time is now. Unmanned aircraft systems are moving into the commercial sector. With cuts in the defense budget and mitigated conflicts overseas, this innovative technology has moved into the public domain through search and rescue, emergency response, scientific research, and wildlife protection.
Entrepreneurial businesses in agriculture, energy, media and other commercial sectors have already realized the immense potential of this amazing technology. However, before this technology can be fully utilized, the Federal Aviation Administration must authorize regulations for this burgeoning technology in order to safely integrate unmanned systems into the commercial airspace.
To best prepare the business community for FAA regulation rollout and unmanned aerial vehicle use, our presenters will provide a comprehensive status on the following topics:
Technology: What is presently available and under development?
Current Usage: How are unmanned systems being used in the commercial sector now?
Legal Landscape: Current state and FAA litigation cases.
Federal Aviation Administration's regulatory activity:
- When we can expect final regulations
- How public comment might impact the final language enacted by the FAA
- Practical hurdles to consider and prepare for:
- Air traffic
- Bandwidth interference
- Export Controls/ITAR
- Insurance coverage
This online seminar will end with a hypothetical case study: a fact pattern that will analyze the types of liabilities that will arise by virtue of commercial airspace drone usage. During this study, our faculty will examine risk mitigation, indemnification and limitation of liability techniques that buyers and sellers of drones should consider as these products get introduced to the commercial marketplace.

How It Works
Single Connection: $99.00
Additional Connection at the same Organization: $50.00
A site connection allows a single connection to the web conference. That connection is open to any number of users in a collaborative setting. Because there are no travel expenses and only a single registration fee is required, each additional participant lowers the cost per participant significantly.
By purchasing a site connection, you can invite as many people as you would like to view and participate in the session from a single location. Set up the session in a conference room and project the presentation and chat on a large screen. You also have rights to distribute copies of the presentation materials to everyone involved. Please note that audio is received via the phone line and must be broadcast to your group.
If for any reason a relevant stakeholder cannot co-locate for the session, we encourage you to include that person by purchasing an additional connection at the reduced fee of $50 per session. This will ensure that every member of a team receives the same relevant, timely information in the most efficient way. If you have any technical or purchasing questions, please contact us at (818) 888-4444.
CANCELLATION, REFUNDS & CREDITS
Should you be unable to attend, a refund, less a $50 administrative charge, will be made for cancellations received via letter or fax at least 3 working days before the event. We regret cancellations will not be accepted after that date. However, we will be pleased to transfer your registration to another member of your company or credit the registration fee to another Infocast conference if you register within 6 months from the date of this conference. In the event the conference is canceled, Infocast’s liability is limited to the refund of the conference registration fee only.
