From Maybe to Mainstream Conference
(Realising Drone Potential)

The “From Maybe to Mainstream” conference at ROTORTECH, hosted by the Australian Association for Unmanned Systems (AAUS), 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.

This complimentary conference to run as part of ROTORTECH, will focus in on how 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 AAUS Conference indicative program (subject to change):

Day 1 will examine current and future applications of Remotely Piloted Aircraft Systems (RPAS) in fire and emergency management. It is a tailored event developed for government agencies and industry and will focus on case studies of fire and police applications of drone technology and will explore challenges and opportunities. The format of the event will be conference presentations and panel discussions. Invited speakers include Chief Remote Pilots from State Police and Fire agencies, CASA and key industry technology developers.

Day 2 will follow a similar format but will shift focus to other civil applications of drone technology including agricultural, infrastructure inspection and aerial survey. Delegates will hear from Government agencies employing drone technologies as well as key industry service and technology developers. The conference provides an excellent opportunity to connect with industry, utilising drones for real and current applications. Networking opportunities will form part of the program including a social event.
