Send in the drones …

From aerial photography to topographic mapping to facility inspections, A/E firms are exploring a wide array of potential drone (UAS – unmanned aircraft systems) applications to make data collection and site monitoring safer, more efficient, and more accurate. 

But the regulatory framework is lagging significantly behind technology development and deployment. The FAA has issued only a narrow set of licensing exemptions to a select few companies, and only recently released draft rules for widespread commercial operations. 

This uncertain operational environment raises significant liability and risk questions for firms looking to invest in this technology and explore its potential applications.

Co-presented by a firm practitioner on the operational capabilities and a UAS policy expert on regulations and legislation, session participants will gain fresh insight into the potential impact of this exciting technology on their business. Including:

·         UAS applications for surveying, mapping, inspections, and other A/E fields

·         Aircraft and systems hardware capabilities and costs

·         Proposed FAA regulations for commercial UAS operations

·         Legislative and regulatory outlook
