Initiative Name:
Seminar Addressing Drones
To Whom It May Concern, Please find attached a joint op-ed by the Association for Unmanned Vehicle Systems (AUVSI) and the Center for Democracy & Technology (CDT). This op-ed highlights the collaboration by AUVSI, CDT, and other major stakeholders through the National Telecommunications & Information Administration to develop voluntary best practices for UAS privacy, transparency, and accountability, as convened by President Obama. Given the significant amount of time and effort put in by all parties to develop these best practices, AUVSI would strongly encourage the FTC from taking any duplicative steps or actions that would undermine the finality of the NTIA multi-stakeholder process and document. Respectfully, Mark Aitken Director of Government Relations AUVSI
