  • (1888PressRelease) August 13, 2015 - With the increasing use of UAVs, experts see a growing thread in the safety of the European airspace. Two aircraft proximity events in July highlight the growing problem, with incidents involving UAVs reported by commercial airline pilots on approach to both Warsaw International and London Heathrow airports. SMi's 15th Annual conference on Unmanned Aerial Systems will provide you a platform to discuss solutions for a safe air traffic integration and review the current state of it from the national and international perspective. In addition, it will highlight the challenges in civilian versus military UAV airspace management and evaluate the procedural standards on construction, reliability and safety of unmanned aerial vehicles.
