Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University Assistant Professor Christian Janke recently spoke at the DRONEMASTERS Mobility Conference which discussed the latest developments of manned systems in the lower airspace.

Janke, representing the Worldwide Campus’ College of Aeronautics, was invited to moderate a panel regarding the aspects of Urban Air Traffic Control. In this session, several key leaders in the field of airspace management and intelligence shared their views about the chances and challenges in the harmonization of manned and unmanned aviation.

The panel looked at the growing global market for commercial unmanned systems and how UAS are becoming an essential part of transporting goods and people. “Our panel really showed the significance of the future airspace management and highlighted in what fields manned and unmanned aviation can learn from each other,” said Janke.
