ENSCO, Inc. is taking its deep experience and advanced technologies in avionics systems engineering, vision systems, embedded graphics, mission support, and meteorology to the 2013 Association for Unmanned Vehicle Systems International (AUVSI) conference and exhibition in Washington, D.C., Aug. 12-15. AUSVI is the largest worldwide event for Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS), attracting attendees from government, industry and academia.
Previously used primarily in military operations, the value of UAS to law enforcement, agriculture, disaster evaluation, and other civilian operations has become increasingly evident. Now that Congress has approved widespread use of UAS by late 2015, the FAA is working to mandate guidance for their use in civilian airspace.
ENSCO is well positioned to design, build and certify UAS for operation in the National Airspace System based on its experience with the armed forces, the FAA, and national security groups merged with its capabilities in avionics software and flight systems, global meteorological forecasting, and integrated sensors and systems.
