The drones are coming! You’re aware of the debate over unmanned aircraft systems and privacy rights, but the story is much bigger. The business activity in unmanned vehicle systems is growing exponentially, and the opportunities are limitless. Although domestic commercial use of unmanned aircraft systems is currently hampered by the absence of FAA guidance and reactionary legislation, surface and subsurface maritime and terrestrial applications are growing virtually unchecked. Moreover, Virginia companies that developed systems in support of the Department of Defense and intelligence agencies now are offering that expertise to customers abroad.

This program offers an overview of the top legal issues that providers of unmanned systems are facing. Our faculty will describe the challenges for unmanned vehicle systems businesses and describe solutions.

Topics will include: 

  • Overview of UAS and their Business Potential – Bob Korroch
  • FAA Regulation of UAS and Certification Requirements – Judy Bristow
  • Virginia Legislation Governing Use of UAS by Public Entities – Patrick Cushing
  • Privacy Considerations – Will Dickinson
  • Liability Concerns and Insurance – Will Dickinson
  • Seeking Overseas Markets and Complying with Export Controls – Tom McVey
