Public Safety Training at 2017 Drone World Expo

The Academy of Model Aeronautics (AMA), DJI, and Fly-Robotics will be presenting a public safety training workshop as part of the pre-conference offerings at Drone World Expo 2017, taking place October 3-4 at the San Jose Convention Center. The workshop will be held on Monday, October 2nd from 9am - 12 pm and 1pm - 4 pm.

Drones provide an aerial perspective on emergencies that were previously expensive, dangerous or simply impossible to obtain, and public safety agencies have expressed a clear need for more guidance and training to begin putting this new technology to work. Speakers at the workshop will include Romeo Durscher, Director of Education, DJI North America; Bill Pritchett, Director of Education, Academy of Model Aeronautics (AMA); and Archie Stafford, Chief Technical Officer, Fly-Robotics, LLC.

In addition to the workshop a mix of drone and law enforcement experts will be leading other education sessions focused on innovative drone use for public safety, emergency response, law enforcement, fires and search and rescue operations.

In addition to public safety, other pre-conference workshops to be offered on Monday, October 2, include sUAS for Inspections, presented by Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University Worldwide, and Sensors and Analytics for Precision Agriculture, presented by MicaSense.
