Summary: Explosive growth in the Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) market segment and an unsettled regulatory framework make for a confusing picture. Our experts will clarify the confusion, explain product design trends and describe in detail the operation of one new micro-UAV in particular. With the industry poised for the opening of the regulation floodgates to address a growing commercial demand, we will hear from developers, both independent and at large GNSS companies, and from a legal expert who will discuss today’s and tomorrow’s likely regulatory framework. Attendees also will learn how robust, cost-effective Hybrid GNSS Technologies offer unique capabilities for UAV navigation in environments where traditional GPS receivers may fail.
