What is the US way for building the  UTM market and how it compares globally?

This panel will highlight the regional differences in regulatory and industry approaches to the building and opening of the UTM and drone services market, with a specific focus on the US drone service ecosystem.

  • Takanori Ito, Program Manager at Japan’s Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry (METI);
