Whether these unmanned aircraft are controlled by a remote or accessed via a smartphone app, they possess the capability of reaching the most remote areas with little to no manpower needed and require the least amount of effort, time, and energy. This is one of the biggest reasons why they are being adopted worldwide, especially by these four sectors: Military, Commercial, Personal, and Future Technology. The designs presented by the SURVICE Engineering team are becoming capable of transporting up to 500 lbs.

Development of hundreds of more uses of drones are underway due to the multiple investments pouring into this promising industry everyday. Estimated to be a $64 Billion industry by 2023, with millions of drones in use.
Not for you? at one time, every innovative technology faced that, maybe even the wheel.
Mark Butkiewicz, Applied Technology Operations Manager (ATO) for SURVICE Engineering, and now creating, here in Churchville, MD, one of the country’s most unique drone research facilities – SURVICE ATO at the Harford County Airport. It’s unique because it has its own, and rare to get, restricted flying zone for drones; it’s on the maps of the FAA and airlines maps, with this new facility supporting the development and testing of the latest in unmanned multirotor platforms and integration of custom payloads and autonomous technologies.
Water Cooler April 1, 2021: Digital Transformation of Manufacturing
Digital Tech Transforming Manufacturing. Powered by data and automation, digitization is transforming every step of the manufacturing process, from supply chain and enterprise to the shop floor and end users. … By adopting and implementing smart technologies, manufacturers can increase productivity, improve inefficiencies and further sustainability.
The buzz term is Industry 4.0, also known as the fourth industrial revolution, and it’s about focusing on connectivity and communication. It presents a future where devices are connected so that they can communicate and make smart decisions, often more robot than human.
OUR SPEAKER Mike Galiazzo, Ph.D, is the long tenured President of the Regional Manufacturing Institute of MD, for over 30 years championing the value of a growing manufacturing base in Maryland.
On March 04, 2021, Brian Dykstra, CEO of Atlantic Data Forensics, Inc., with over 25 years’ experience in investigations, computer forensics, incident response, and secure network architecture and his company, an internationally recognized company handling hundreds of forensic investigations and data breaches each year for clients in the US, presented the most valuable tips for us to stay safe in the cyber world.
The basis for his presentation centered around Cyber Crime- one of the greatest threats to every business, and the pandemic has increased the threat 400% as noted recently by the FBI Internet Crime Complaint Center- IC(3). The impacts to the financial health of the company, reputation, and ability to operate can be catastrophic if not handled well from the time of the incident identification. Brian reviewed some recent cases during the pandemic that employers have faced and how they handled the situation.
His solution is: “Be Proactive, Prepare For The New Threats”
Ransomware is an Evolving Threat that Now Exploits the New Normal Brought on by the COVID-19 Pandemic
Organizations with Newly Remote Workers are at Heightened Risk
Enterprises can Deploy “Three Magic Things,” which will Significantly Reduce Their Risk of a Cyber Incident at Little to No Cost
