Discussions will also address best practices and safety guidelines for a UAS program including regulations and resources. Session speakers will include UAS providers, trainers and end users.

Is your Operation Ready for Unmanned Systems?
How do you know if the time is right for a UAS program? Is your team ready, and more importantly, is your company ready to embrace the construction industry’s newest tool? UAS and the data they deliver can be transformative for business operations but getting started isn’t always easy. During this session you’ll gain insight into the “ins and outs” of starting a UAS program.

Speaker: Richard Lopez, National UAS Operations Executive, Hensel Phelps

Making the Most of Your Investment: It’s All About the Data
Drones are cool, but it’s really all about the information and imagery they provide. In this presentation, you’ll learn how drone-based photogrammetry and mapping technology is being used for construction applications and what it means for your business.
Speaker: Aaron Woods, Technical Trainer, Pix4D

What You Need to Know to Fly Safe
Safe and responsible drone operations are imperative for all organizations with UAS programs, and operator training is a key component of program management. But, navigating the current sea of training providers can be a complex process. This presentation discusses the AUVSI Trusted Operator Program, a new certification program available to remote pilots and UAS training organizations dedicated to promoting professionalism, safety and proficiency in the industry.
