Drones for Construction and Inspection

Construction errors and costly repairs can cost millions of dollars. Drone mapping during construction helps to document the proper work of good contractors and make it easier to keep the entire job on track. Statistically, most construction jobs with drones save the construction company 10-15%. Preventing even one major accident can reap an impressive cost savings and make your office look wonderful to your constituents. Drones can also be utilized to track the burn progress and behavior of wildfires.

Drones for Public Safety and Transportation

Drones offer unique capabilities that can be helpful in identifying safety issues that need to be addressed. Whether it is inspecting infrastructure, planning the freeways of tomorrow, inspecting buildings, power plants, wind farms, dams, other government structures, or even shining a spotlight on recent improvements, there are many ways that drones can save time, money, and resources when it comes to public safety and transportation. Risk identification and early detection of potential problems are key force multipliers in this area.

Drones in Law Enforcement

Drones can allow LEO’s to have situational awareness in a way only helicopters could provide in the past. A live or recorded view of a crime scene can help document key data that would otherwise be lost. In this course with an emphasis on procedures and tactics, officers learn about basic tactical drone use for surveillance, accident investigation, and evidence collection. Case studies will be examined to show how useful drones are to the departments that have already incorporated this powerful technology.

This is a one-day course.

Drones for Search and Rescue

Every year people get lost and/or injured in wilderness areas. Locating these persons quickly can be the difference between life and death in some situations. Participants will learn time-saving search technique that gives first responders the best odds of locating victims. Night operations are also covered in this course.
