UAS First Responder Summit
Public Safety encapsulates law enforcement, firefighting, and search and rescue, in which the application of UAS is varied and innovative. Drones are continuing to become a common tool in emergency services, with more and more agencies using the technology to increase efficiency and help keep the public, and the workers, safe. The public safety conference content will concentrate on the evolving real-world applications of using drones in search and rescue, firefighting, and emergency response.
Construction continues to be one of the most rapidly growing industries for UAS integration. AECDrone content will demonstrate how UAS are effective tools in the push towards streamlining workflow through image collection, data analysis, and building information modeling, creating more efficient resource management.
In an increasingly high-stakes industry, drones have played a crucial role and are rapidly changing the world of energy. Designed to surface challenges and solutions to operational workflows, Inspection Drone program content will cover the evolving use and real-world implementations of unmanned aircraft systems in oil & gas, wind turbines, powerlines, nuclear energy, and utility infrastructure inspection.
Providing safety and efficiency, drones have been proven to be powerful tools for the surveying and mapping industries. The content of this co-located event will cover topics such as photogrammetry, point clouds, topographic surveys, building orthomosaics, cadastral and corridor surveying techniques, volumetric collection and calculations, and more.
Drones are being creatively used in business practices, photography, entertainment, supply chain, and more. Additionally, the commercial drone industry is often learning to navigate current policy, regulation, and standards. Attend Drone Nexus to learn about new and exciting drone use cases, hear from the FAA and local governments about current regulations, and learn how to best position your drone business for 2020 and beyond.
