Given the rapid expansion, adoption and application of Unmanned Aircraft Systems and Unmanned Traffic Management (UAS/UTM), the absence of an agile regulatory framework poses safety and security risks for all stakeholders in addition to business risk for commercial end-users and industry. Though forums exist for discussion, a fully staffed, neutral, non-partisan body that can build consensus among stakeholders and recommend policy based on collaborative consensus does not exist.
We identify barriers to development and ambiguity in existing and future regulatory and operational infrastructure, then formulate policies, standards and operating practices that our affiliates adopt and may offer to regulators for policy consideration.
AcceleratUM is an inclusive, privately funded collaborative that develops consensus solutions for the unmanned mobility industry by bringing together commercial end-users, municipalities, emergency service providers, manufacturers, technology providers, researchers, user groups and regulators.
AcceleratUM is a collaborative organization that develops consensus solutions for the unmanned mobility industry. Our affiliates include representatives from commercial end-users, municipalities, emergency service providers, technology providers, researchers, regulators and manufacturers. AcceleratUM affiliates elect a Policy Board that determines the key priority areas of focus for the AcceleratUM team. Once consensus solutions are reached, AccleratUM affiliates use this information to guide their own R&D and policy work.
AcceleratUM’s priorities are established by the affiliate membership based on their needs and those of the broader UAS industry in collaboration with known regulatory issues. AcceleratUM’s staff devises solutions (standards, policy recommendations, etc.) informed by these priorities and then presents them back to the membership for their adoption and proliferation or to regulators for consideration.
Business organizations including commercial end users, municipalities, emergency service providers, technology providers, researchers, regulators, manufacturers and trade associations that have an interest in the commercial development of unmanned mobility technology and use cases all have a place as affiliates of AcceleratUM.
