Event Summary

Regardless of the COVID-19 pandemic, the use of small Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) for commercial and public purposes continues growing. In order to support the expansion of these uses, revisions to the regulations of UAS operations are underway in many countries. In the US, two important regulations were published in January 2021: one for Remote ID and the other for operations at night and over people.
In this colloquium, as the latest trends in the US, the details of these two new regulations and the trend of revising the regulations to expand the Beyond Visual Line of Sight (BVLOS) operations were presented. After that, Prof. Suzuki of the University of Tokyo’s Institute for Future Initiatives, who is a leading expert on aviation innovative technologies including unmanned aerial systems, was invited as a commentator to introduce the regulations in Europe and discuss issues and measures for further expansion of use.
The colloquium was a great success with 446 participants from universities and other research institutes, government offices, and airline companies.
