MES Editorial Director, John McHale said, “At AUVSI Xponential this year, I moderated a Law-Tech Connect panel and attended the other sessions. After hearing the presentations and talking with the speakers I felt it was critical that we provide this content to those who were not able to see it live. We are excited to present this workshop online so that all stakeholders can dig deep into legal, regulatory and policy issues that impact the uncrewed ecosystem.”
