Through this SISANT Symposium, the objective is to bring together all the stakeholders of the segment (Industry, Academy, Operators and Regulatory Authorities), providing to those present to know the characteristics of this system considered as the new era of aviation.
News about Unmanned Aircraft Systems is already common in the news. The so-called Drones can be used for a simple recreation, even for professional use, as is the case of photographers and videographers who use this feature as a differential of their work.
This technology is gaining increasing space in the daily lives of the population. Today, unmanned aircraft can be used for military purposes, to assist in agriculture, in support of public safety agencies in some cities, in supervision of works, among other activities.
The increase in commercial use of these aircraft has been growing annually. In 2018, approximately 60,000 drones were registered by the Unmanned Aircraft System (SISANT), managed by the National Civil Aviation Agency (ANAC). This number is already higher in the first five months of 2019, which revolves around 70,000 remotely piloted aircraft registered by the Agency.
But conquering new markets does not always bring the “legal” use of these aircraft. The use has also been made improperly, often without prior knowledge about the use and even without permission for its use.
The ease of access to this technology, the low cost compared to manned aviation and the promising market have attracted a diverse audience that often does not demonstrate the knowledge required to operate the system in compliance with the legislation. The result has been a high incidence of irresponsible use of airspace, endangering other users, people and properties.
Thus, aiming at airspace safety in Brazil, the Department of Airspace Control (DECEA), which is the Agency responsible for all control of the 22 million square kilometers of airspace under its responsibility, launched in 2016, the RPA Airspace Access Request System, the SARPAS. The objective is to facilitate and expedite the processing of requests for the use of remotely piloted aircraft.
In addition to authorization to access the airspace, and the registration of the aircraft made by ANAC, the user still needs to have their aircraft approved by the National Telecommunications Agency (ANATEL).
Without complying with all these requirements, the aircraft in question is prohibited from flying, and its operator may be fined or penalized.
In order to raise awareness among the public involved, the Second Integrated Center for Air Defense and Air Traffic Control (CINDACTA II), a unit subordinate to DECEA, will promote the Symposium on SISANT (1st Regional Symposium on Unmanned Aircraft Systems). educational premise and recommended by the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO), of which Brazil is a Signatory State.
The objective is to provide participants, through lectures, contact with best practices related to the safe operation of the unmanned aircraft system.
The event will take place from July 16 to 18, in the 14 BIS auditorium, at CINDACTA II headquarters, in Curitiba (PR). To give an educational character, the three days of the meeting will consist of lectures on the topics that involve all stakeholders of the segment (Industry, Academy, Operators and Regulatory Authorities), providing to those present to know the characteristics of this system considered by ICAO, as the new age of aviation.
“This event aims to continue the work that DECEA has been developing, and to focus on the main aspect at this time of our society regarding the unmanned aircraft theme, which is education. Education is the most important factor, in our view, for us to be able to achieve an excellent level, throughout society, of the operators and people involved in the use of remotely piloted aircraft. ”- concluded Colonel Aviator Marcos Kentaro Adachi , Commander of CINDACTA II.
