NMTC- Game of Drones 2.0
09/27/2018 at 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm
Winters Run

 

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,

sponsorships available, $150.

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. Stay for networking 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 latest, almost car-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.

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 – 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.
  1. TV and movies – Drones can provide more options without expensive helicopters. May also partially level the playing field for amateur filmmakers.
  1. Military – As small as a bird, or large as a small. The majority are aerial – UAVs – although ground-based UGVs and aquatic drones are growing. BIG THREAT
  1. Police, law enforcement, national security, and fire and rescue – Identify where criminals might be hiding and identifying where hostages might be held,  monitoring crowds, riots, and traffic violators. Surveil multiple locations at once to prevent illegal border crossings. Carry a person to evacuate a building or transport to a hospital and fight forest fires.
  1. Sports – Replacing wireline cameras and blimps, 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. Dust crops. Locating lost animals, herd counting from an aerial photo; not rounding up an entire herd to count.
  1. Mining – Surveillance, lease boundary inspection, inspection of safety zone, counting of vegetation in the reclaimed area, replacing equipment at remote sites. 
  1. Home and business security – Part of home security systems. Larger, campus-size corporations incorporating drones rather than hiring more security guards. Neighborhood watch group consisting of drones patrolling a neighborhood.
  1. Food delivery – 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. Rwanda, one of the world’s poorest countries, has one of the first drone delivery services for medicine.
  1. Data, telecom, and communications – Rather than installing expensive data lines, building cell towers or launching satellites, drones serve as mobile towers. ATT&T has “flying COWs” to boost cell reception.
  1. Oil and gas pipelines and utilities – Inspect lines at minimal expense compared to a helicopter crew. 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 theft. Drone swarms on the rise.

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, $150.
