An industry-leading publication and an international drone company has teamed up to provide current and prospective commercial UAV users with the information they need to navigate new legislation, get started with UAVs, and improve their business efficiency, data accuracy, and profits.
Inside Unmanned Systems and microdrones™ are pleased to announce they will be hosting a webinar called Part 107 Rule: Impact on Key Application Segments in the Commercial Drone Market. The event will take place on Wednesday, September 28, 2016 at 12:00 P.M. EDT. Because it is a web-based event, participants can join the conversation from anywhere in the world.
The webinar will include a question and answer period during which participants will be able to interact in real-time with top UAV experts. The initial discussion will focus on Part 107's implications for mapping, surveying, and inspection applications, but anyone interested in using drones for commercial purposes is welcome to participate. Spots are limited, so interested individuals should register immediately at https://attendee.gotowebinar.com/register/8780341795519423748.
The event will be moderated by Demoz Gebre-Egziabher, a professor of aerospace engineering and mechanics at the University of Minnesota-Twin Cities, USA. The expert panel for this webinar includes:
- Major General James O. Poss (ret) of ISR Ideas, is a leading expert on UAS, having targeted the first armed UAS strikes, designed the US Air Force's remote split operations system for UAS control, and designed the Distributed Common Ground Station for UAS intelligence analysis. General Poss is the Executive Director of the Alliance for System Safety of UAS through Research Excellence (ASSURE) of the Federal Aviation Administration's (FAA) Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS) Center of Excellence Team. ASSURE consists of 18 of the top US, Canadian and British UAS research universities with 100+ corporate members collaborating to solve the FAA's UAS research issues. General Poss works for MSU at their Stennis Space Center Campus. He is a 30-year US Air Force veteran with combat experience in four wars and was the Air Force's senior career intelligence officer at his transition from active service in November 2012.

- Ben Van Lare is Operations Manager for Raecon Industries. Van Lare works with a team of professionals in the power, construction, and technology industries to evaluate and integrate the use of Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) into the commercial work environment. Not only does he specialize in UAV usage and piloting, but also in project management and business development. He is happy to act as a resource for those who have questions on either of these topics for businesses using UAS.
"We're excited to be hosting this webinar and to have the opportunity to assist those who are pioneering commercial UAS," said Mike Dziok, Marketing Director of microdrones.
