The ACC sets the legislative and regulatory priorities in the air domain for the association via input and feedback from its membership. Committee members work intimately with federal regulators in the executive branch, lawmakers in the legislative branch, and their staffs, as well as state, local, and tribal officials, to help scale unmanned/uncrewed aircraft systems (UAS) and advanced air mobility (AAM) integration in a meaningful way. The goal is to ensure the government’s regulatory framework fosters innovation and spurs U.S. competitiveness.

The AAC comprises of a diverse group of AUVSI member companies, including UAS operators, UAS manufacturers, software companies, defense contractors, counter-UAS companies, AAM companies, Drone as First Responder (DFR) companies, public safety experts.

He brings decades of aviation-related technical and management expertise from across the world.

Sweatte informed the strategies of Fortune 100 aircraft and auto original equipment manufacturers to expand their advanced aviation operations by developing policy and project frameworks that covered all facets of the AAM market, from aircraft design selection to type and operational certification. He served as an aviation officer at the World Food Programme, where he led the integration of UAS technology with global humanitarian and international development operations, contributing to the organization’s receipt of the 2020 Nobel Peace Prize. He served as technical officer for RPAS for The International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) in Montreal, Canada, leading the development of a global, multi-sector framework for unmanned air traffic management (UTM).

Earlier, Sweatte managed multiple UAS programs at the Federal Aviation Administration, including novel projects for which no prior protocols existed. He led the drafting and signing of the world’s first international, multilateral agreement among eight Arctic countries for the cross-border use of UAS in international airspace for scientific and search and rescue missions.
