Drone World Expo will open with an insightful and informative conversation from leaders from NASA, Google, and the Federal Aviation Administration who will provide an update on the vision for safety enabling low-altitude UAS operations for commercial markets.   The keynote will be held on Tuesday, November 17 at the San Jose Convention Center and will be moderated by Gretchen West, Senior Advisor on Technology and Innovation for Hogan Lovells and National Advisory Chairperson for UAVUS, who will also serve as Master of Ceremonies for Drone World Expo.

"The Unmanned Aircraft Traffic Management program (UTM) is a cutting edge program that will safely integrate drones into the airspace with other aircraft seamlessly.  The collaboration between government and industry is propelling this program forward, but it is not without challenges," West said.  "I'm looking forward to the panel discussion at Drone World Expo to explore what more can be done by both industry and government to ensure the success of UTM and drone integration for all users."
