Tuesday, May 09, 2017: 10:30 AM - 12:00 PM
Regulation and policy development are important topics for the unmanned maritime community. This discussion will deliver an update on the significant progress being achieved internationally in coordination with key maritime agencies and decision makers to conform legally and technically with the Rules for Prevention of Collisions at Sea (COLREGS) and related regulations. The time is propitious for a coordinated international approach to the ruling bodies, with the aim of recognition, certification, and indemnification of unmanned maritime systems enabling effective and safe operations in the marine environment.
