About this event

Aerospace industry is the largest in Europe and the second largest in the world. The next major evolution in aviation will be the introduction of autonomous systems; essential for large Unmanned Aircraft and a potential major contributor to the further development of the manned sector. Before these benefits can be realised, the technologies have to be matured, the regulatory processes developed and the socio-political environment managed. Europe has also recently published its RPAS (Remotely-Piloted Aircraft Systems) Roadmap. This talk will explain the business drivers, the technical and regulatory challenges and the contribution that the UK is making to this exciting opportunity, principally through the major ASTRAEA research programme that, in its eighth year, is looking to embark on a third phase of major demonstrations.

Programme

Refreshments and networking from 6pm, lecture from 6.30pm.
