UAS Insider Briefing

            You’re invited

UAS Insider Briefing

Thursday, June 1 2017
9:30 a.m.–4:30 p.m.

Dentons’ Washington, DC, office
Founders Conference Room
1900 K Street NW
Washington, DC 20006

RSVP

An Exclusive Program Focused on the Information You Need

What a difference a year makes! In 2016, nearly everyone thought they knew where drone laws and regulations were heading. Now, with Washington turned upside down, the future has become less certain. The issuance of new rules for drone flights over populated areas, which looked like a sure thing for early 2017, are in a holding pattern. With a federal hiring freeze in place and big budget cuts on the table, agency priorities are being reevaluated and refocused. In addition, Congress will have its own say on priorities as the FAA braces for another round of reauthorization fights.

While it is impossible to know where federal drone laws and policies are headed, it’s imperative to consider the possibilities. Even imperfect analysis is preferable to flying blind! This insider briefing will provide you with a thorough update on where we are, a roadmap for what we think the regulatory landscape will look like, and advice to help you thrive in this rapidly changing environment.

You will hear lively and informative discussions by officials from the FAA and the NTSB, experts from the UAS industry and leading aviation lawyers touching on all aspects of UAS operations and regulations, including:

  • Insider views on Congressional actives, a briefing on the FAA appropriations fight, and how you can position your company to take advantage of what is coming
  • Anti-drone technologies—how is the government acting to remove the numerous legal and regulatory obstacles to deploying these new technologies?
  • The Safety Act….the ultimate liability protection for your drone operation
  • How to get approval for what you can’t do under Part 107 (e.g., beyond visual line of sight operations and package delivery) and opportunities presented by the new administration
  • A mid-year review of changes in state and local drone laws
  • The nuts and bolts of buying and selling UAS services and other contractual, commercial and insurance issues
  • The current FAA regulatory landscape—where it’s going and how you can get a “seat at the table.”

Dentons’ UAS practice group includes attorneys and professionals who are well versed in FAA regulatory and enforcement issues, liability, risk management, insurance, commercial/contract issues, intellectual property, export control, government affairs and other legal issues involved in operating UAS in the commercial world.

Who Should Attend?

Any company that wants to be prepared for the future of the UAS industry

Cost

This program is free to attend, but seats are limited and must be reserved. Lunch will be provided to attendees.

The UAS Webinar Series – Defending against drones: The next step

      Thursday, January 5, 2017
1–2:30 p.m. ET

Webinar – no charge

RSVP

For the past several years, everyone has been working to integrate drones into the national airspace system as quickly as possible. With the launch of the new Small UAS Rule (Part 107) earlier this year, unmanned aircraft systems are being used in unprecedented numbers. As they continue to proliferate, however, a very different issue—drone defense, i.e., “How do we keep UAS from flying where we don’t want them?”—has come to the fore. Even Congress has gotten into the act, ordering the FAA to develop a system for designating “no-drone-zones” around critical infrastructure.

From jammers that block signals to systems that spoof (i.e., gain unauthorized access to) control systems to microwave weapons that fry onboard electronics, there is no shortage of ideas for how to solve this problem. Unfortunately, however, the ingenuity of scientists and the drive of entrepreneurs far outstrip the law’s ability to deal with these new technologies.

This webinar, presented by Dentons, will examine the latest drone defense initiatives and technologies and analyze the legal issues that need to be resolved before they can be deployed on a widespread basis. Among the topics we will address are:

· The competing drone defense technologies

· Federal and state efforts to designate “critical infrastructure”

· Legal limits on shooting down a drone or interfering with its flight

· Jamming and other FCC issues

· The potential impact of federal and state hacking and cyber security laws

· FAA issues raised by systems that take control of a drone in flight.

You will also have an opportunity to ask questions. We look forward to your joining us for this informative and interactive session.

The 2017 Aviation Symposium

                  February 7–9, 2017 

The Ritz Carlton
1700 Tysons Boulevard
McLean, VA 22102 l Map

The 2017 Aviation Symposium is free of charge and includes a Continental Breakfast, Welcome Cocktail Party, Lunch and Networking Reception

RSVP

Whether you’re a large airline, a regional carrier, a cargo carrier, a charter operator or a corporate/business/fractional owner-operator, the efficient management of available resources when things go wrong is of critical importance. Not only may you find your options limited by the resources available to you, but in foreign countries or other locations where you have few or none of your own people on the ground, you may have to depend on resources that you aren’t familiar with.

During this, our 11th annual Aviation Symposium, we will focus on how to effectively plan for and use to maximum advantage all resources available to mount a response—whether to an emergency requiring the evacuation of a handful of executives or hundreds of passengers, an airplane blown off the runway or a mid-air collision—that is calculated to meet the needs of the situation at hand, but also protect your brand and to position your company to “come out the other side.”

Whether you’re a large airline, a regional carrier, a cargo carrier, a charter operator or a corporate/business/fractional owner-operator, the efficient management of available resources when things go wrong is of critical importance. Not only may you find your options limited by the resources available to you, but in foreign countries or other locations where you have few or none of your own people on the ground, you may have to depend on resources that you aren’t familiar with.

As always, count on an entertaining and uniquely interesting lunchtime speaker, a Welcome Cocktail Party on February 7th, and our end-of-conference Networking Reception on February 8th.

  • Structuring and conducting an effective training exercise
  • Using limited personnel resources to the maximum
  • Keeping your company running during an incident/accident response
  • Providing support and assistance to the families and friends of passengers and crewmembers
  • Making social media part of your rumor management strategy
  • Enhancing the effectiveness of your emergency response through the use of outside resources

And a host of other subjects focused on ensuring effective preparedness and response, whether you’re resource-rich or resource-limited, including:

  • The unique issues faced by regional, cargo and corporate operators
  • The ever-changing face of the FAA
  • Selecting a family assistance contractor ( Get what you NEED, not what they want to sell you!)
  • Taking full advantage of the resources your insurance carrier and broker are offering (After all, you’ve already paid for them!)
  • Other current issues and subjects in the aviation industry
