Mark Reichardt, CEO and President of OGC Open Geospatial Consortium, and Aeronyde GIS Digital Twin Architect Nafis Kamal
On, September 20th, 2018, UAS technologists, regulators and entrepreneurs met in Washington D.C for the ANSI Unmanned Aircraft Systems Standardization Collaborative (UASSC) 2018 Plenary Meeting.
The UASSC’s mission is to coordinate and accelerate the development of the standards needed to facilitate the safe integration of unmanned aircraft systems (UAS) into the national airspace system (NAS) of the United States.
The DC event focused on the discussing the first draft of the UASSC Standardizations roadmap, is a detailed framework for best practices written by industry experts comprising the UASSC working groups.
The event featured numerous leaders in the UAS space, including Earl Lawrence Director of UAS Integration Office, FAA, and Mark Reichardt CEO and President of OGC Open Geospatial Consortium.
Aeronyde is thrilled to contribute to the UASSC Standardizations effort. Our GIS Digital Twin Architect Nafis Kamal wrote the gap analysis for data handling and processing for GIS, and joined in DC to discuss the development of safety standards with ANSI and the FAA.
