The term autonomous flying is a broad term which refers to flying an aerial vehicle with little to no intervention of a pilot or operator. A popular example (with various degrees of autonomy) is a drone\, the colloquial term for unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV).\r\n \;\r\nThe primary focus of this year’s GCC will be on drones\, their applications and the infrastructure into which UAVs are imbedded. While we are aiming to capture the full scope of unmanned aerial systems (UAS)\, we invite speakers and attendees to place the topic in a broader perspective. The introduction of unmanned vehicles in the air requires e.g. advances in technology\, challenges the status quo in airspace management and operations\, and raises social and environmental questions.\r\n \;\r\nThe GCC 2017 will investigate Germany’s and Canada’s approaches to further the development of an unmanned aerial infrastructure. We will compare regulatory initiatives paving the way to introduce autonomous commercial services in airspace and we will look into economic opportunities for business applications related to drones\, along the following pillars:\r\n \;\r\n\r\n Technology cooperation – Existing industrial and research collaboration and areas for expansion\r\n Commercialization and entrepreneurial eco-systems – Business models and economic opportunity for growth in new and related business eco-systems\r\n Airspace models – Approaches to introduce an unmanned aerial infrastructure\r\n Regulatory aspects and security – Comparison of German and Canadian legislation and lawmaking initiatives\r\n Social and environmental impact – Social acceptance and benefit\r\n\r\n \;\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n \;\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nJoin the GCC 2017 LinkedIn group "Ascent of Autonomous Flying"\, share your vision on the future of autonomous and unmanned flying and influence the program of the GCC 2017 through your contributions to the discussion.\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nConfirmed Speakers and Panelists\r\n \;\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n \;\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n \;\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n \;\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n \;\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n \;\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n \;\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n \;\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n \;\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n \;\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n \;\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n \;\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n \;\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n \;\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n Keynote:\r\nTristan Serretta\r\nChief Operating Officer\r\nAirbus Aerial\r\n"UAS in Daily Operations – Amusing Dreams or Reality Soon?"\r\n \;\r\nSpeakers / Panelists:\r\nMark Aruja\r\nChairman of the Board\r\nUnmanned Systems Canada\r\nRyan Coates\r\nChief\, Policy\, Unmanned Aircraft Systems Task Force\r\nTransport Canada\r\nMichel Cordeau\r\nBusiness Development Coordinator\r\nCentre d'Excellence sur les Drones – UAS Centre of Excellence\r\nAlexis Dorais\r\nRemote Sensing Analyst\r\nEnfotec Technical Services Inc.\r\nBrian Guimond\r\nManager Military Operations and Unmanned Aircraft\r\nNAV Canada\r\nRaimund Kamp\r\nDeputy Director Airworthiness\, Operations\, Licencing\, Aviation Safety\r\nFederal Ministry of Transport and Digital Infrastructure (BMVI)\r\nDr.-Ing.
