CHAPTER EVENT April 23 – 24, 2019

NASA is conducting a series of meetings and workshops to identify a coordinated approach—including goals, opportunities, and research priorities—to enable increasingly autonomous operations in the national airspace.

The first workshop in the series will focus primarily on enabling medium-side cargo/freighters and reduced crew transport-category aircraft operating in all classes of airspace:


Enabling Autonomous Flight and Operations in the NAS Workshop 1

April 23 – 24, 2019

NASA Ames Conference Center, Moffett Field, CA 94035

The second workshop, May 21 – 22, will focus on autonomous small unmanned aircraft systems and increasingly autonomous medium-size air mobility vehicles.

Design and operation of autonomous aircraft is key to increasing efficiency and addressing expected growth in aviation in conjunction with impending pilot shortages.  NASA is asking for stakeholder participation to identify clear goals, collaboration opportunities, and priorities for research, development, and testing to define a national strategy that will enable increasingly autonomous operations in the national airspace (NAS).

If you represent a U.S.-based company or institution involved with aircraft, including: manufacturers; passenger, cargo, and, service delivery operators; venture capitalists, air transportation system experts; communication, surveillance, and navigation service providers; airspace operations experts; airport designers; system designers and integrators; researchers; government organizations; machine learning specialists; and autonomy subject matter experts, please join us to identify needs and use cases for a national strategy to support autonomous systems and operations.
