Abstract: Drones also known as unmanned aircraft systems (USA) are capturing the imagination of many people with their widespread application. For others, they are a serious threat to airspace management and privacy. While it is clear that this technology is here to stay, important questions are waiting to be answered. Come join us at swissnex Boston for a presentation by Michel Guillaume, Professor and Director of the Centre for Aviation (ZAV) at Zurich University of Applied Sciences (ZHAW), where he and his team are working on answering some of these important questions. The unique Bachelor Degree Program in Aviation associated with ZAV, now celebrating its 10th anniversary, is an interdisciplinary center addressing complex and wide-ranging issues in the aviation sector under one roof. It links a broad variety of technologies, methods, and research fields with the goal of overcoming the challenges of future global mobility and researching ways to shape it more efficiently and securely. Michel Guillaume will discuss the development of fixed wing UMARS drone, Remote Pilote Station for drones and the project of the a ¨Technology Study for Drones¨ in Switzerland. Following Michel Guillaume's presentation, a panel of experts moderated by Olivier de Weck from MIT’s Aero Astro department will discuss the future of autonomous aerospace science, ideas for unmanned aircraft integration in existing aerospace organization, and trends for payloads of unmanned aircraft systems for different applications (search and rescue, logistics, real estate, agriculture, high altitude platforms to augment satellites, etc.).
