DRONE ENABLE 2023, ICAO’s Unmanned Aircraft Systems Industry Symposium will be held from 5 to 7 December 2023 in Montréal, Canada. The theme of DRONE ENABLE 2023 is Innovation and infrastructure developments supporting the future of unmanned aviation”.

The symposium will bring together key stakeholders from industry, academia, government and international organizations in the unmanned aviation sector to exchange research, best practices, lessons learned and respective challenges. Attention will be given to ongoing ICAO activities such as unmanned aircraft systems traffic management (UTM), communication, navigation, surveillance (CNS) and spectrum, as well as advanced air mobility (AAM), which need to be addressed collectively in order to facilitate unmanned aircraft integration into the global aviation system.  

Most DRONE ENABLE 2023 speakers will be selected based on their submissions in response to this year’s Request for Information (RFI). The deadline for RFI submissions is 19 May 2023. Please see the RFI link on the left for further details on this year’s RFI. Maturity and completeness of proposed solutions as well as potential for global application will be key factors in the speaker selection process.

The symposium will be an opportunity for networking, collaboration and coordination between civil aviation authorities, industry and both new and existing stakeholders as we move forward in this dynamic field. It also provides a unique opportunity to progress a comprehensive and harmonized regulatory framework to support UAS activities.
