Sidebar        Drones as Disruption Symposium

Drones, or Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS), have arrived. Ranging in size from under a pound to tons, drones carry a host of technologies that can enable important work in fields ranging from environmental monitoring to newsgathering, from smart agriculture to law enforcement.

This conference, which takes place on November 6, from 9 a.m.-5 p.m. in Saxbe Auditorium, brings together lawyers, policymakers, and technologists to address how domestic drones as a disruptive technology rupture and bridge existing regulatory frameworks. The goal is both practical and theoretical: to explore how technology drives regulatory development, while at the same time bringing important actors together in the same room to address how the parts fit together—and to identify where there are gaps.

Supported by the Center for Interdisciplinary Law and Policy Studies, Aerospace Research Center, Battelle Center for Science and Technology Policy, John Glenn College of Public Affairs, the College of Engineering, and the Moritz College of Law At The Ohio State University.
