DRONES – The applications of drones are almost endless. Operators identify a wildfire’s hot spots, inspect oil and gas pipelines, monitor crops, create maps, and so on. Goldman Sachs believes the broader drone market opportunity over the next four years could be a $100 billion opportunity, helped by growing demand from the commercial and civil government sectors. But, with reward also comes unintended risk, and we explain it here.

September 27, 2018, 3-5:00PM, Winters Run Golf Course, Bel Air. $20 NMTC members, $30 Non-NMTC Members. See below to register. Sponsorships available, $200.

This TECHCONN3CT workshop will convey the variety of drone technology, how to fly them, ask questions of the panel experts and participate in a drone race. Lite refreshments served with happy hour following in the clubhouse lounge.

Extras: NVision4D has donated a $150 drone package to be raffled off that day, and SURVICE Engineering will display their expanding, large-size military drones.

ABOUT DRONES
Within 10 years, nearly every country in the world will be capable of developing military drones, and terrorists will use them, in swarms. For better or worse, drones will play increasingly significant roles in our lives.

These NMTC TECHCONN3CT Workshops, and their master program, NMTC DISRUPTIVE TECHNOLOGY SUMMITS, delivers advance knowledge to you to determine risks/rewards impact on your business, program, workforce and personally, your career, created by these technologies.

Below, are 17 ways that drones will dominate our lives in the coming years.

  1. Realtors and builders – Realtors use drones to show potential buyers unable to see the locations in person.Inspect infrastructure including skyscrapers, bridges, for building phase and maintenance
  1. Consumers and hobbyists – Goldman Sachs expects shipments of consumer drones to reach 7.8 million in 2020, generating $3.3 billion in revenue. The Aerial Sports League now hosts drone fighting and racing events. attracting half a million spectators to live events.
  1. Journalism – Reporters and journalists are now able to review video footage in hard to reach areas but pose serious privacy concerns. In addition, citizen journalists can also use drones to cover live news – and with far fewer limitations than a smartphone alone.
  1. TV and movies – TV and movie filming, drones can provide more options without expensive helicopters. May also partially level the playing field for amateur filmmakers.
  1. Military – Some military drones are as small as a bird, while a Predator drone from General Atomics can be the size of a small jet with advanced camera systems and remote missile delivery systems. The majority are aerial – UAVs – although ground-based UGVs and aquatic drones are growing.
  1. Police, law enforcement, national security, and fire and rescue – Drones identify where criminals might be hiding and identifying where hostages might be held, for monitoring crowds, riots, and traffic violators. Border patrol and police departments are already using drones to surveil multiple locations at once to prevent illegal border crossings.Fire and rescue Drones or bomb disposal robots are already in use to disarm or destroy bombs found in public places or going into a burning building is a similar concept. Drones can now carry a person a person to evacuate a building or transport to a hospital and fight forest fires.
  1. Sports – Wireline cameras and blimps at sporting events may soon be supplanted by drones, used for unique filming angles and aspects of sporting events, or, surveying a golf course, or getting an aerial footage of a racing event, and even providing a creative lighting display.
  1. Cargo and parcel delivery -Testing in six cities for non-line of sight drone delivery. All major carriers (Amazon, UPS, FEDEX, USPS poised to move fast in this area.
  1. Farming and ranching -Survey their land, check up on crops in hard-to-reach areas and inspect multiple farming operations remotely. Dust crops – a use that could prove to be a major time and money saver. Locating lost animal, herd counting from an aerial photo could also be much easier than having to physically rounding up an entire herd into smaller areas.
  1. Mining – Surveillance of the mining area, lease boundary inspection, inspection of safety zone, counting of vegetation in the reclaimed area, replacing equipment at remote sites.  Driverless vehicles can also help improve mine safety by cutting down the risk of human errors caused by fatigue and stress.
  1. Home and business security – Sunflower’s Home Awareness System and Hawkeye incorporate drones with home security systems. Larger, campus-size corporations incorporating drones rather than hiring more security guards. Neighborhood watch group would be consisted of drones patrolling a neighborhood.
  1. Food delivery – Food delivery will have to overcome several obstacles, including keeping the food at the right temperature and FAA regulations. Chipotle and Alphabet are currently trying this out on college  campuses, finding the proper material to keep it warm and safe from the elements.
  1. Pharmacies – QuiQui aims to deliver pharmacy goods in the Mission District of San Francisco for a charge of just $1.00. Expansion to other cities or nationwide appears likely. Rwanda is one of the world’s poorest countries, but it also has one of the first drone delivery services for medicine.
  1. Data, telecom, and communications – Rather than installing expensive data lines, building cell towers, and launching satellites, drones could serve as mobile towers. ATT&T has “flying COWs” to boost cell reception. And Facebook is looking at UAV in developing nations after natural disasters.
  1. Oil and gas pipelines and utilities – Drones can be used to inspect these lines at minimal expense compared to a helicopter crew. Drone company FLIR currently markets drones with Aerial Thermal Imaging Kits, for measuring temperature data to cover large substations, transmission lines, and distribution lines.
  1. Criminal and terrorist use – As with any technology, criminals, smugglers. terrorists are using drones weaponized drones to carry out strikes on the Iraqi army in Mosul and other strategic locations. Drones have also been used by would-be thieves to case properties for potential.
