‘Change is in the Air’ – The First of its kind UAS Symposium

”Change is in the Air.” This is the tagline of our fall symposium, which denotes the excitement and also the angst that goes along with change.

“What interests me most about the conference is the different types of people that will be there. It’s not just photogrammetrists, it’s not just law enforcement, it’s not just firefighters. It’s different types of people from the data collection side and the data consumption side, and it’s only really when you get those people together that you really start to talk about how do we create systems that are going to work well for all of these interests.” – Brandon Basso, PH.D., Senior R&D Research Engineer at 3D Robotics

Dr. Basso will be co-presenting the opening keynote, and also contributing as a panelist. Watch the full clip of his thoughts on why he’s excited to be a part of the ASPRS UAS Technical Demonstration and Symposium.

A full line-up of events is provided on the symposium website at http://uasreno.org.

See you in Reno!
