A full-day seminar focusing on UAV/UAS Market Opportunities and ITAR Compliance


Hosted by Kent State University College of Aeronautics and Engineering and NEOTEC


UAV (Unmanned Air Vehicles) and PAV (Personal Air Vehicles) present unique opportunities for Ohio companies. The supply chain of this growing segment within the aerospace and defense industries requires that companies clearly understand its requirements, the applications where their products may be used, and the ITAR and EAR export regulations to supply military industries in other countries. This seminar will focus on potential opportunities for businesses in our region, funding programs to support related R&D activities as well as partnership programs with university and federal research labs that can help companies develop suitable products for the aerospace industry. The event will also include information on how NASA can assist in the development of UAVs and PAVs as well as in-depth training on ITAR regulations applicable to those vehicles.
