FAA, NASA Seek Participants for UAS Traffic Management Workshop

NASA and the Federal Aviation Administration will jointly host an industry workshop on unmanned aircraft system traffic management this Dec. 9. The workshop supports phase two of the UAS Traffic Management Pilot Program or UPP and will feature new technologies such as remote identification, FAA said Tuesday.

UPP aims to regulate drone operations in the country's airspace and requires industrial support to attain needed services. FAA and NASA will provide in-depth information on UPP's second phase with coverage on use concepts, requirements, architecture and a programmatic timeline.

The agencies will require participants to have the capacity for high-density airspace operations, flight information transmission due to off-nominal events, remote identification, public safety operations and UAS volume reservations.

U.S. citizens may apply for the workshop through Nov. 25. The event will take place at NASA's Ames Conference Center in Mountain View, Calif.
