The session will review commercial applications for small UAS and issues and possible solutions designed to address challenges from the introduction of this technology in the national airspace system. Much of the session's material has been published in an academic, peer-reviewed law review. The planning approach for this effort took place in several phases. Phase 1: Content analysis of UAS law and policy. Phase 2: Review of results from a regional aviation stakeholder survey. Phase 3: Technical suitability analysis of land uses and potential UAS take off and landing locations surrounding a federally funded airport. Results will be presented as a potential model to craft state and local policy to address unauthorized UAS activity near airports. This complements FPD's approach to serve as a forum for people involved in the development and/or implementation of planning policies, techniques, and procedures for federal properties.
