The National Association of Tower Erectors (NATE) announced their expanded roster of participants who will be serving on the Association’s Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS) Committee. The association released the new roster at this week’s commercial UAS event, Drone World Expo. We are excited to be partnered with this great organization as they continue to expand their UAS committee with industry leaders (including our very own, Karl Schwab!).
NATE UAS Committee
The NATE UAS committee will be monitoring the trends and regulatory environment associated with rapidly evolving UAS technologies as well as making recommendations to NATE members and the wireless infrastructure industry on best practices for UAS implementation. The committee will also be focusing on collaborating with federal agencies and interested stakeholders in the development of guidelines to promote safe commercial UAS use.
The Association’s Board of Directors member, Jimmy Miller, stated “NATE is thrilled to announce our expanded UAS Committee roster. The NATE UAS Committee line-up consists of some of the brightest minds in commercial drone aviation representing some of the most innovative companies and organizations from throughout the wireless and UAS ecosystems.”
