ICAO issues call for innovative solutions for drone airspace management

Following the success of ICAO’s inaugural DRONE ENABLE symposium last year, a second 2018 DRONE ENABLE event is now being organized for 13-14 September in Chengdu, China. The focus of this year’s event will be to explore solutions with experts from industry, academia and other innovators regarding the coming evolution and integration of UAS traffic management and conventional air traffic management.
