Drone technologies are rapidly becoming a significant tool in mainstream government and civilian applications assisting in the provision of important information to the end user in an efficient and safe manner. The “From Maybe to Mainstream” conference at ROTORTECH will be hosted by the Australian Association for Unmanned Systems (AAUS) and will bring together key government agencies and industry to discuss the current state of play for the use of drone technologies and explore opportunities moving forward. Discussion will look at all aspects of the drone technology ecosystem including regulatory and data exploitation aspects.
The conference will run on one of the days during ROTORTECH 2021 at the Royal International Convention Centre. Registration is free.
The conference will examine current and future civil applications of Remotely Piloted Aircraft Systems (RPAS) in Australia including emergency services, agricultural work, infrastructure inspection and aerial survey.
The conference will provide an excellent opportunity to connect with industry. Networking opportunities will form part of the program.
