Event: The 2010 Unmanned Systems Interoperability Conference

Presentation Title: UAS RFI Mitigation System, a New Paradigm for Safe UAS Operations

Event Date/Time: October 20, 2010 at 4:30 PT

Location: Liberty Station NTC Promenade Conference Center, San Diego, Ca

Mr. Erickson will discuss how RFI impacts the safe operations of unmanned systems. As the use of unmanned aircraft by the military, civilian government and commercial entities continues to increase, their safe operation is a national imperative. The ability to efficiently manage assigned spectrum allocation and to mitigate the impact of RFI, including prevention of "loss of link," is critical to the success of continued UAS operations.
