Engineering and Certification Challenges for Integrating UCAs in the Civil Airspace – Presented by Moshe Attar, Israel Aerospace Industries at the Unmanned Cargo Aircraft Conference, which takes place on June 13, 2017, at Maaspoort, Venlo, The Netherlands.

The presentation will focus on the following:

  • Short Overview of IAI UAVs and experience
  • How do we see the market for UCA
  • What would be the right aircraft configuration for UCA
  • Operational Aspects: The Ground Control Station (GCS) and the UAV (UCA), Introducing unmanned airplanes into the civil airspace, Communication,…
  • Level of Automation\ Autonomy
  • Dealing with Failure cases: Examples
  • Certification Aspects:
    • Safety Aspects
    • Certification Risks

About Unmanned Cargo Aircraft Conference

Unmanned Cargo Aircraft (UCA) systems are about to bring massive disruptions the transport sector. Stakeholders active in this industry have to adapt their organisation accordingly in order to optimize operations and revenues. UCA offer increased productivity and can open up new markets in areas where manned air transport is uneconomical and geographically limited. The Unmanned Cargo Aircraft Conference brings together technology leaders, cargo operators and end-users to share the status of these exciting opportunities. The conference also addresses the benefits of unmanned cargo for military purpose such as unmanned transport of goods in high-risk areas.

Focus topics: Military Systems;Long Range / Medium-High Payload Systems ; Specialised/Irregular Delivery Systems;Urban Delivery Systems; Autonomous operation architecture; Regulatory issues;New value chains / business models and more…..

The Unmanned Cargo Aircraft Conference is part of the first global multimodal unmanned cargo systems event – a two-day event (Jun 13-14, 2017) that includes 4 dedicated conferences and an exhibition:Cargo Innovation Conference ; Unmanned Cargo Ship Conference ; Unmanned Cargo Ground Vehicle Conference ;Unmanned Cargo Aircraft ConferenceSmart Logistics Expo
