Unmanned aircraft for cargo – potential and challenges – Presented by Vladimir Zubkov, The International Air Cargo Association (TIACA), at Unmanned Cargo Aircraft Conference USA, which takes place on March 20, 2018, North Carolina Global TransPark, USA.
What is the place of TIACA in the implementation of unmanned aircraft in the air cargo industry? RPAS and UAS – promising candidates for the “last mile delivery” or the future workhorse of the industry? Regulatory challenges and administrations involved. How to be prepared to comply with different kind of regulations? Technological solutions helping to overcome existing barriers. Human factors, stimulating innovations and development of human capital. From talking to acting – is there a mechanism?

About Unmanned Cargo Aircraft Conference
This 6th edition of the conference organized by Jakajima will be hosted by US Cargo and North Carolina Global Transpark and is supported by Platform Unmanned Cargo Aircraft.
Scope: The Conference aims to bring together manufacturers, operators, knowledge institutes, consultants and government organizations active in the upcoming field of unmanned cargo aircraft.
Unmanned Cargo Aircraft (UCA) are a relatively new phenomenon; the first UCA service is to be started in Kenya this year. UCA offer the potential to transport loads of 1 to 10 tons or more over both short and long distances, on routes that are unfeasible or uneconomical for other modes of transport.
During the conference, internationally renowned speakers will introduce UCA development projects and potential applications.
Topics to be covered are:
- UCA business models: how to earn money with UCA?
- UCA configurations: what could – and should – UCA look like?
- Regulation: where are UCA allowed to fly, and under which conditions?
- Societal benefits: what can UCA contribute to economic and social development?
- Industrial participation: how can UCA contribute to innovation and what opportunities do they generate for new enterprises?
- Market analysis
Target group: Shippers | Carriers | Harbour authorities | Research institutions | Military | Ship manufacturers | System Integrators | ICT suppliers | Logistic service suppliers | Entrepreneurs | Investors | Airports | Governmental Institutions | Cargo Companies | Fulfilment companies | Retailers | E-tailers | Consultants
It is a unique opportunity to exchange ideas and network with this pioneering community of unmanned cargo researchers, engineers, business developers and end-users.
