Technology Training Results Presentations

Research Results Presentations are a platform for researchers to provide a final presentation on a research project. An overview of the project is provided with detailed discussions on the findings and recommendations. These presentations possess strong technical components and in-depth discussions that focus primarily on the research with minimal details on administrative matters.

Results Presentations typically last for 90 minutes, including time for questions/answers. Most of the presentations are offered nationwide via a live webinar coordinated through the Ohio LTAP Center. In addition to the live broadcast, the webinars are recorded and available for viewing at a later date. Results presentations are offered at no charge to attendees. Certificates of attendance are made available upon request to those who are physically present at the presentation.

Upcoming Results Presentation  

Technologies for Integration of small Unmanned Aerial Systems (s-UAS) in National Airspace System
Date  July 11, 2018​
Time: ​ 11:00am – 12:30pm (ET)
Researchers: Manish Kumar &  Matthew Dechering, (University of Cincinnati)
Auditorium, Ohio UAS Center, 4170 Allium Court, Springfield, OH 45505
Project Summary
Unmanned Air Systems (UAS) have traditionally been used for military applications for a number of years. Recently, UAS, particularly small UAS (s-UAS), have generated a lot of interest due to their potential to revolutionize some of the applications in civilian domains such as emergency management, law enforcement, infrastructure inspection, precision agriculture, package delivery, and imaging/surveillance. However, before the use of UAS becomes a reality in civilian domains, the challenges emanating from safe and reliable integration of UAS in the National Airspace System (NAS) are extremely critical to be solved.
Given the fact that there are several potential applications of UAVs, and the inexpensive nature of these UAS, particularly s-UAS, it is anticipated that, once allowed by government regulation, there will be an extremely large number of UAVs flying in the much crowded airspace. This presents several challenges in safe operation of UAS in terms of management of their traffic so that the required separation is maintained between manned and unmanned aircraft and other stationary ground obstacles. Several new architectures and potential solutions for Unmanned Systems Traffic Management (UTM) have been in proposed recently. Even though a lot of effort has been spent by both government and industry, development of an efficient and robust solution for UAS integration into NAS has been proved to be evasive.
The goal of this student study project was to systematically study the recent advances, identify potential issues, and propose new solutions focusing on two aspects of UAS integration in NAS: "Sense and Avoid" and "Unmanned Systems Traffic Management (UTM)".
How to Attend
The Research results presentation is open for in-person webinar participation.  You must attend in person at the Ohio UAS Center or a District office to receive a CPD credit.  
Please coordinate with the District Training Coordinator if you wish to attend at a District location.
There is no fee to participate; however, registration is required by 3:00 pm on Monday, July 9, 2018.
You will receive an email confirming your registration.  Certificates of attendance will be made available upon request for those attending in person.  ODOT district personnel may be eligible to receive CPD credit by contacting your district training coordinator.  Seating is limited and is on a first-come, first-served basis.  If you have any questions please contact the ODOT Research Section.
