RTI International cordially invites you to attend
Robotic and Remotely Piloted Aircraft Inside the United States: Applications, Safety, Perceptions and Privacy Concerns

The domestic use of robotic or remotely piloted aircraft is expected to become an $85 billion business within a few years, as this technology becomes widely available for commercial application within the United States. This technology offers many public safety benefits and commercial opportunities, but it also raises concerns about personal privacy, safety, and liability. At this policy forum, a group of leading experts will discuss and explore concerns ranging from public opinion toward the use of unmanned aircraft flying above our communities to the policies needed to ensure these aircraft are operated safely and do not violate the privacy we enjoy as American citizens.
