  1. Bioinspired aerial platforms
  2. Hybrid platforms
  3. Design for resiliency
  4. Human factors
  5. Framework and regulations for integration into the national airspace

ICUAS ’24 brings together, under one forum, national and international organizations, federal agencies, industry, the private sector, authorities, end-users, and practitioners, who work towards defining roadmaps of Unmanned Aircraft Systems/Remotely Piloted Aircraft Systems (UAS/RPAS), they set expectations and technical requirements and standards that are prerequisite to their full utilization and integration into the national airspace. Special emphasis will be given to research opportunities, and to ‘
what comes next’ in terms of the tools and support technologies, and standards, which need to be utilized and implemented to advance the state-of-the-art.
