Gain a competitive edge with your drone program, and here’s what you need to know to make it successful!

Engineers, surveyors, contractors and state DOTs across the country are using Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS), commonly referred to as “drones,” to become more efficient, improve safety and reduce costs. But where does a company start so they don’t get left behind?

Find out how Clemson University, in partnership with South Carolina Interagency Drone Users Consortium (SCiDUC) teaches public and private industry professionals how to deploy this time saving technology.

During this webinar, we’ll take a dive into Clemson’s Applied Drone Technology course that teaches best practices of fundamental commercial drone operations, FAA compliance and software applications that brings it all together.

You’ll hear firsthand how KCI’s survey group were able to quickly produce a detailed and accurate reality mesh, point cloud, and orthophoto in ContextCapture from previously flown drone photos and survey data.

In this webinar, you will learn about:

  • Tools available to start a using drones to enhance your business
  • What is the FAA Part 107 remote Pilot Certificate any why you need it
  • What you need beyond the Part 107 to incorporate into the national airspace
  • A case study of what a company can do with the right tools and training. Using Photogrammetry/LiDAR to provide higher quality deliverables to your customers
