Description

The VA-FIX is Virginia’s step toward the future of UTM by creating an authoritative SDSP that leverages the wealth of information in state and local government to help UAS operations and UAS Service Suppliers plan and conduct safe, effective operations. VA-FIX is part of Virginia's approach to address key policy and safety concerns at the state and local level while also maintaining a UAS airspace that is one of the most free and open in the nation. 

Virginia developed a governance model that has been successful at balancing stakeholder equities, driving toward an increasingly open framework. Virginia is willing to work with you and share our lessons learned and governance approach/model and to even help other states establish similar models: a model that allows government to focus on governance and leaves market decisions to the market. The Commonwealth believes that states could collaborate and mature this into a shared governance model for state and local SDSP authoritative source information that supports and enhances the FAA’s UTM concept and provide clearer, higher quality information to the UAS industry. The launch of the VA-FIX has resulted in a great deal of interest and outreach from other states and the community at large.

Many state and local governments, public safety leaders, industry participants, and research centers have reached out to Virginia Department of Aviation to understand how Virginia created and operates the FIX model and how it can help them with governance challenges. The objective of this workshop is to update government and industry on the Virginia data governance model and inform others of how they could implement this model.We will review the Virginia governance model in a brief presentation, review actual use cases in place in Virginia, and the panelists will lay out several real world use cases for workshop participants to discuss in breakout groups. The participants will then engage in hands-on FIX User Group–style discussions to lay out the proposed governance solution in the VA-FIX training server and brief their proposed solution to their peers.
