The kick-off demonstration, which will be held from 5:30 to 8:30 pm, will feature a night forensic scene aerial capture workflow demonstration by Sundance Media Group, FoxFury and Pix4D highlighting how two different drones and related technology can be used to capture forensic evidence for law enforcement use. Halfway through the aerial collection, a news crew will launch an additional drone simulating a news gathering mission of the incident. Together, three drones will operate together safely in relatively confined airspace as they each accomplish their assigned objectives.
Attendees will be able to watch the dual operations live on site. A video of the demonstration will also be released the following week in conjunction with National Drone Safety Awareness Week.
“This event will demonstrate how drones can be used safely and effectively – even at night – in everyday operations for both public safety and commercial operators,” said Lisa Murray, Group Director for Commercial UAV Expo Americas. “We are thrilled to help unite these incredible partners to showcase the exciting potential of commercial drone technology and drones for good in conjunction with National Drone Safety Awareness Week.”
