Experts to Demonstrate Drone Use for Various Scenarios at NIAS

Drone demonstrations for first responders will take place in conjunction with Commercial UAV Expo on October 25th at the Henderson Unmanned Vehicle Range (HUVR). The HUVR is managed by the Nevada Institute of Autonomous Systems (NIAS) and the FAA-designated Nevada UAS Test Site.

Local and national public safety experts will demonstrate drone use for a variety of scenarios.

The training is sponsored by Yuneec and Aeryon Labs, whose drones and systems will be used in the demonstrations. Experts from Las Vegas Fire & Rescue, Metropolitan Las Vegas Police, Nevada Highway Patrol, Nevada State College, Colorado Division of Fire Prevention and Sundance Media Group will lead the training. The demonstrations are expected to draw 300 public safety officers from throughout the country, including state and local police officers and fire & rescue professionals.

Demonstrations include live-stream monitoring of an accident reconstruction, a search and rescue scenario, a high risk traffic stop, and a suspect pursuit. Industry experts will walk the audience through simulated procedures and best practices detailing selected UAS solutions and data management systems. More information can be found here.
