Thank you for participating

Please join us for New England’s UAS and AAM Summit 2022, Scaling Airspace and Autonomy: Impacts on Society and Business, co-hosted by AUVSI New EnglandMassAutonomy, and NDIA New England. Government, industry, and academic leaders from across the country will discuss UAS and AAM progress, opportunities, and obstacles as we develop and implement this critical technology in society and daily life.

New England is a national innovation hub of talent, market opportunities, and leadership across government, industry, universities, non-profits, and start-ups. The region’s varied geography, population density, transportation needs, and infrastructure assets offer countless scenarios and testing possibilities for UAS and AAM use case development. Its diversity renders New England a valuable location for industry and researchers to develop, test, and expand the adoption of UAS and AAM operations. 

This year’s Summit is two full days and will once again be hosted at the Northeastern University Innovation Campus in Burlington, MA. It features fourteen keynote speakers, engaging panel discussions, a PitchFest for innovators and start-ups, multiple exhibitors, live demonstrations, networking breaks, and many more opportunities to engage with regional and national leaders. The Summit is an excellent opportunity to learn about what is happening across the industry on the national and international levels and an invaluable chance to experience New England's rich UAS and AAM ecosystem!

Join us in person during our beautiful New England autumn at our annual New England UAS and AAM Summit 2022 for two days of immersive discussion on the future of airspace!

Admission includes all keynotes, panel discussions, exhibits, PitchFest, STEM activities, commercial breaks, and networking opportunities, plus light breakfast, lunch, and reception on both days! Register now!


The Summit's comprehensive program brings together government, industry, and academic leaders to provide keynote sessions, speaker presentations, and focused discussions that will provide critical insights into the UAS and AAM in society and business today and in the future. The event also features a PitchFest, an exhibit hall, commercial breaks from industry leaders, and ample networking opportunities. 

Invited keynote speakers and panelists will address: 

  • Airspace security, counter-UAS, and the impact of UAS in the conflict in Ukraine
  • UAS enablers and the future of BVLOS and the BVLOS ARC recommendations 
  • Integrating AAM vertiports into communities, with perspectives from local civic leaders
