Husch Blackwell announced the introduction of its Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) group, which will assist commercial business users and manufacturers in navigating the requirements for unmanned aircraft systems and unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV).

Composed of a multi-disciplinary team that includes former fighter pilots, component and software developers, and data analysts, Husch Blackwell's UAS/UAV Group is uniquely qualified to assist clients in the legal, privacy and regulatory issues associated with unmanned flight systems.

"The technical applications of the UAS/UAV industry continue to outpace impending rulemaking regarding certification and operations requirements," said David Agee, co-leader of Husch Blackwell's UAS group.

"Because of this uncertain environment, operators need trusted counsel to navigate the complicated legal terrain. Husch Blackwell's team provides the broad range of regulatory, technical and hands-on experience this industry requires."

The technology used in unmanned aircraft systems--commonly referred to as drones--is rapidly evolving. Commercial use allows for collection of data, mapping and surveillance of often remote and disparate environments at significantly reduced operating costs compared to land-based methods.

Other applications include traffic monitoring, package delivery, atmospheric research, disaster relief and environmental compliance. A growing number of business and government agencies have expressed interest in using drones in a wide array of industries, including energy, agriculture, film and real estate.

Led by Tom Gemmell, a former Air Force fighter pilot and intellectual property and commercial litigator, and David Agee, head of the firm's Aviation team, Husch Blackwell's UAS attorneys focus on the key sectors and practices that matter most in this growing industry.

"We couple our technology and aviation knowledge with a deep understanding of current and developing law and technologies associated with unmanned systems," Gemmell said. "With the broad spectrum of ways drones can potentially support commercial business operations, we are ensuring our clients can explore and ultimately capitalize upon these opportunities."
