We've got answers to four major  UTM questions...
1. THE WHAT...  

UTM Convention 2016 is a different kind of drone event.

Everyone is talking about how to use Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) in everyday life. But how those drones are managed in the National Airspace System (NAS) is the real question. At UTM Convention 2016, our goal is to provide you with the in-depth knowledge you need regarding the current state of UAS Traffic Management (UTM), including an exclusive NASA briefing on technical capability level (TCL) demonstration 2 taking place this October. We'll even throw in a behind-the-scenes look at what's going on at Griffiss International Airport, one of the FAA-designated test ranges. Join us November 8 - 10 in Syracuse and be part of the next era of aviation.  Learn More.

Welcome to New York! 

The future of UAS traffic management standards, innovation, and technology is taking root in Central New York and the Mohawk Valley.

New York State has made a multimillion dollar commitment to create a UAS innovation and manufacturing hub in Upstate New York, supporting concepts originated by NASA, including the planning and design of next generation UTM infrastructure, national UAS standardized testing and rating facilities, and an innovation district dedicated to unmanned systems. Leading expertise of strong aerospace firms, including Saab, Lockheed Martin, Gryphon Sensors, and SRC, and assets such as a FAA-designated UAS test site in the region, further supports these efforts.  Read more.
