UTM Convention Announcement Gains Local and National Media Attention

Go Back

Onondaga County, Oneida County, CenterState CEO and the Association for Unmanned Vehicle Systems International (AUVSI), in partnership with Empire State Development, the Air Traffic Control Association (ATCA), and Syracuse University are proud to announce the 2016 UTM Convention will take place in Central New York and the Mohawk Valley this fall. UTM stands for Unmanned Aircraft System (UAS) Traffic Management (UTM), a comprehensive research effort, led by NASA, to safely integrate low-altitude unmanned aircraft (such as drones) into the national airspace.

Leveraging the success of last year’s inaugural event hosted by NASA at the Ames Research Center in Mountain View, California, the 2016 UTM Convention will be held Nov. 8-10 in sites across Syracuse and at the Griffiss International Airport in Rome. The convention is expected to attract attendees from the systems integration, unmanned aerial vehicle, and unmanned traffic management industries from across the globe.
