Meeting: NASEM Assessing the Risks of Unmanned Aircraft Systems Integration

Wednesday, December 13, 2017 - 7:30am to Friday, December 15, 2017 - 1:00pm


The National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine (NASEM), Division on Engineering and Physical Sciences, will hold a meeting for its ad hoc committee tasked to evaluate the potential of probabilistic assessments of risks and other risk assessment methods for streamlining the process of integrating unmanned aircraft systems into the national airspace system and to identify supporting research and development opportunities in this field. 

This meeting is being held to gather information to help the committee conduct its study. This committee will examine the information and material obtained during this, and other public meetings, in an effort to inform its work. Although opinions may be stated and lively discussion may ensue, no conclusions are being drawn at this time and no recommendations will be made.

More information is available via the NASEM website.
