MAPPS members are invited to gain targeted and focused programming on geospatial and imagery applications using unmanned aircraft systems (UAS) at the MAPPS Fall Policy Conference, to be held at the Drone World Expo, November 17-18 in San Jose, California.

During the 2-day event, MAPPS will host sessions to provide tooth-to-tail information for firms exploring entry into the geospatial market using UAS. Presentations will begin with What You Need to Know Before Starting Up Your Unmanned Aircraft System (UAS) Department, exploring factors to consider when planning the start-up of a stand-alone UAS business, or a department in an existing firm. These include system operating limitations, flight training, crew responsibilities, operator authority, and client expectations. This session will better prepare entrepreneurs, executives and technical managers to utilize UAS technology to its fullest extent and expose the risks that await fledgling operators.  In another session, professionals experienced in UAS operations under section 333, COAs or in the international market will concentrate on standards, applications and markets.

If your firm is exploring UAS operations, subcontracting, partnering or any other strategy to utilize this technology, the MAPPS Fall Policy Conference at Drone World Expo is the place for you.

Speakers will include: Bryan Baker, Leica Geosystems; Mike Tully, Aerial Services, Inc.; Jeff Lovin, Woolpert; Andy Nickerson, Aerovel Corp.; and David Yoel, American Aerospace, Inc.
