Unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVS) and unmanned aerial systems (UAS), or drones, are making their presence known in commercial operations following years of military success – and it represents the tip of the iceberg in terms of their potential.

But many questions that need to be explored:

• What are the regulatory standards commercial operators need to know now and in the future?

• What are the technological realities in the market today and what limitations exist for operators?

• Where is the industry headed and how can one capitalize on potential opportunities?

• How are UAVs being utilized today and how can various industries such as aerial firefighting, heavy construction, forestry, real estate and agriculture capitalize on the trend? What are the economic opportunities?

Eric Edwards can help shed light on these topics and more. Edwards initiated and co-led the Transport Canada working group that established the standard Ground School Syllabus for operators of small, unmanned aircraft. As past chair of the Unmanned Systems Canada, he is acutely aware of the current regulatory UAV framework in Canada and is well versed on the potential operational applications for UAV technology. At Xiphos Technologies in Montreal, he works in image processing and hyperspectral data processing for UAV and spacecraft payloads.

Join Edwards as explores the impact UAVs will have on the Canadian commercial framework and the value they will bring to a wide variety of industries.
