Workshops & Trainings

The following workshops, trainings, and demos are offered as add-on items within registration. Register for these events when you register for Commercial UAV Expo Americas.

“BEYOND THE CAGE” Live Outdoor Flying Demonstrations

Seeing drones and software in action before you invest in a system provides much-needed insight into their capabilities. That’s why Commercial UAV Expo Americas, in cooperation with Sundance Media Group, offers you the opportunity to see and compare systems in real-world scenarios.

Leading vendors will demonstrate a range of drone applications. Not only will airframe and sensor capabilities be showcased, but a sophisticated AV set up will allow users to view resulting data sets and processing solutions for the full end-to-end view of the technology. Drone experts will be on-hand to narrate live scenarios and field questions from the audience.

Photogrammetric Survey with UAS: Project Planning and Flight Operations

Photogrammetric surveys conducted with UAS are rapidly becoming one of the most affordable ways to augment traditional field survey and engineering practices. Flight automation and affordable drone camera systems have made aerial surveys affordable; however, many operators do not fully understand the planning and equipment decisions that must be made to ensure accurate products for their application.

True View 3DIS: High Performance Drone LIDAR + Photogrammetry Mapping

Drone mapping gives users the ability to make acquiring, processing and analyzing data more accurate, easier and faster. GeoCue’s True View 3D Imaging Sensor (3DIS) series has provided a technical advantage to mapping professionals at many surveying, mining, engineering firms and government agencies. In this workshop you’ll learn how True View quickly and easily generates highly accurate true 3D colorized point clouds and inspection imagery from a single UAV flight. Our team understands the importance of having the right equipment to successfully conduct your mapping projects, therefore, we will evaluate each 3D Imaging Sensor’s performance and application focus to help users identify which 3DIS fits their needs.

Night sUAS CSI Demo

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 for aerial forensic capture. 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.

Practical Night UAV Flight Training

Experienced field UAV (drone) instructors will offer this practical Night UAV flight training course to equip remote pilots with the knowledge, skills and confidence to pilot an UAV at night safely, efficiently and effectively.

Greater than 70 percent of our flying information comes through the eye and the eye is easily fooled at night. This is compounded by the inexperienced pilot alternating views between a tabled/lighted display and the position of the UAV in the sky. Night flying has a higher accident rate than identical day flying, both in UAV and manned aviation. Why? Depth perception is severely distorted, as is reaction time. There are also visual illusions that need to be recognized and mitigated. This is a practical hands-on class where visual illusions will be experienced in the field as instructors share best practices for night flying.
