I was one of the lucky who followed the UAS fundamentals workshop, attended all the wonderfull thinks that photogrammetry and remote sensing geniuses were up to and watch what market leaders had to display, as well as presenting our efforts of creating a UAS for precision agriculture!

There was a dedicated

Special Session: UAS Capabilities Overview, with a great overveiw of the UAS potentuals and a long discussion for there integration at US airspace "system" by FAA. I understud the conserns and problems, but since iam not US citizen, neither fly at, i wont express my opinnion, but i think its usefull to inform you that there is a major consultation with  FAA to overcome any issues.
