National Forum: Airspace Safety and Security for Sporting Events

Drones Gd 115 Feat

Join us for a timely FORUM in which the attendees will examine the unique safety and security challenges and concerns posed by unmanned/remotely piloted aerial systems on sporting events, as well as the concerns of stakeholders responsible for maintaining safety and security.

Monday, July 6, 2015 -- 1:00 - 4:00 PM

Unmanned/remotely piloted aerial vehicles have the potential to increase the effectiveness of sport security and safety. Sport security managers across all disciplines will have to consider the potential benefits of these; such as the ability to conduct inspections of difficulty to access locations, assess situations and damage, coordinate response, locate missing persons or targets and address crowd and traffic flow.

These newer unmanned aerial systems (UAS) are equipped with features such as high-resolution, near-real-time, video capability as well as stabilization mechanisms, offering clear, sharp imagery that provides unique perspectives not necessarily offered using traditional manned aerial platforms.  Sport venue and event owners will have to consider how these systems can be used to capture footage of their events and how to integrate their usage by media outlets which may leverage these systems in the very near future.

Venues and public safety will be forced to consider how these legitimate, commercially available UAS could be leveraged by adversaries. In order to take full security advantage of the opportunity afforded by these technologies, it is critical for the sport security industry to understand the operating environment, the technologies and the policy implications. Learn what you can do to address this threat.
In addition to security implications, the move towards regulating the U.S. air domain for commercial UAS has prompted makers of these platforms to broaden their utility and expand market appeal by offering models which can be easily operated by consumers, meaning greater proliferation.

The use of a UAS for illegal purposes presents genuine concerns for the operations of the event. During the FORUM, two scenarios will be presented that reflects effective preparation through planning, training and response capabilities to an incident.
