MODERATOR: Matt Nicholls, Editor, Wings and Helicopters magazines
UAVs, UASs, drones – call them what you will, but these aerial vehicles are making news every day – and there is so much more to come.
Yes, there’s a New Frontier on the verge of exploding on the commercial scene and drones will be used by a variety of businesses including aerial firefighting, security, agriculture, law enforcement and more.
So, what’s in it for you? How can you capitalize on this emerging trend and what does it mean for your business? How can you utilize UAVs and what are their benefits and limitations? What are the regulatory realities and how will they change in the future? And just exactly what will the future hold?
These are just some of the questions Wings and Helicopters will attempt to answer in our Webinar: UAVs – The Value Proposition. Eric Edwards will explore these topics and offer insightful information on how to capitalize on the UAV trends. As with our first very successful UAV seminar, $25 gets you a seat – and a chance to ask – your most pressing questions. Edwards will be digging into the realities and perceptions around UAV utility and economics, in several civil and commercial sectors.
If there’s anyone who can shed light on what is about to happen in the UAV commercial space, it’s Edwards. He 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 he explores what the value proposition is for operators, suppliers and more in a variety of different industries.
