On 21 May 2015, the 5th User & Stakeholder RPAS Workshop – jointly organised by ESA, EDA, EASA and EUROCONTROL – took place at ESTEC, in Noordwijk, the Netherlands.
The event was attended by some 140 participants, a fact which reflects the growing interest in applications using remotely piloted aircraft systems (RPAS) enabled by space services.
Representatives from diverse user communities (maritime, security, humanitarian aid, agriculture, etc.) as well as from industry, aviation, and regulatory bodies participated in the event. Civil protection and maritime monitoring were just two of the areas where speakers highlighted an impressive range of opportunities.
