We are pleased to welcome Dr. Richard Kelley to present: “Safely Integrating Drones into U.S. Airspace: NASA, UNR and Private Sector Technologies”

Drone technology has the potential to be a multibillion industry in the next ten years. Air traffic control systems for both drones and humans will be key to realizing this potential.

Dr. Richard Kelley, Engineer at the Nevada Advanced Autonomous Systems Innovation Center, will touch on the basics of commercial drone technology and will explain how the University of Nevada, NASA and several Nevada companies are building an air traffic control system for small drones using the Nevada Unmanned Aircraft and Nextgen Collaborative Environment Laboratory (NUANCE) at the Reno-Stead Airport, a facility dedicated to aerospace and autonomous systems research.
