Live Outdoor Flying Demonstrations

Monday, October 28th | 7:45AM - 1:00PM | Henderson Equestrian Park North

Seeing drones and software in action provides much-needed insight into their capabilities. Six leading vendors will demonstrate a range of drone applications at Henderson Equestrian Park North. Airframe and sensor capabilities will be showcased and participants will be able to watch real-time processing solutions and the resulting data sets for the full end-to-end view of the technology. Drone experts will be on-hand to narrate real-world scenarios and field questions from the audience. Click here to learn more about the offsite flying demos and which vendors will be flying!

Cost $50. Space is limited and registration is required.  Includes round trip shuttle service from the Westgate Resort as well as light snacks and soft drinks. 

Introduction to UAS Operations and Mapping

Monday, October 28th | 8:00AM - 12:00PM | Pavilion 6

The American Society for Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing (ASPRS) will be hosting two sessions at this year’s event. Session I will be an Introduction to UAS Operations and Mapping. It will address how to reliably produce accurate mapping products with UAS. In this session, you will learn from industry leaders on how to consistently and reliably produce accurate 2D and 3D data from UAS and actually make money with UAS mapping. Click here to learn more about this workshop.

Cost $200 per session or $350 for both ASPRS sessions! Registration is required. 

Advanced UAS Mapping Concepts

Monday, October 28th | 1:00PM - 5:00PM | Pavilion 6

The American Society for Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing (ASPRS) will be hosting two sessions at this year’s event. Session II will focus on Advanced UAS Mapping Concepts. In this session, attendees will take an in-depth look at examples where real-world operations and theory collide. You’ve all had that one project you just “couldn’t get right” and this session will teach you why.  Attendees will come away with a much richer understanding of pitfalls that are commonly encountered with UAS mapping and how best to avoid them.

Night sUAS (Drone) CSI Demonstration

Tuesday, October 29th | 5:30PM - 8:30PM | West Charleston Boulevard & South Grand Central Parkway

FoxFury, Sundance Media Group, Pix4D, and public safety personnel have created a demonstration workflow for aerial capture of virtually any type of night forensic scene.  This team will setup a mock crime scene investigation, by creating a forensic scene in the parking lot at Charleston and Grand Central, a 10 minute trip from the Westgate Resort. The purpose of this free demonstration is to showcase how drones (UAVs / sUAS) are used to capture forensic evidence at the scene, in the dark, and use the data captured to create a map in 2D and 3D for law enforcement use.
