UAS Industry Leaders Participating in UAS MAPPING 2014 RENO


 BETHESDA Md. September 24 2014The first UAS technical symposium sponsored by the American Society for Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing (ASPRS) announces that industry leaders in the UAS commercial industry are onboard for UAS MAPPING 2014 RENO!

The technical program has been designed to provide practical information on sensor types and platforms as well as soup-to-nuts details on planning a mission controlling the mission flying the mission and processing the data. ASPRS is “The Imaging and Geospatial Information Society” and its members will be evaluating issues such as accuracy and data quality.

Technical presenters during the symposium include David Ward of Silent Falcon Dr. Bernd Lutz of Multirotor Service Drone Baptiste Tripard of senseFly Ruedi Wagner of Leica Geosystems Wolfgang Juchmann of Velodyne Antoine Martin of Pix4D Heather James of Kitware Dr. Hank Theiss of the National Geospatial Intelligence Agency David Dvorak of Field of View Vince Ambrosia of NASA Nazlin Kanji of AeroVironment to name a few.

Visionaries such as Chris Anderson of 3D Robotics Peter Birch of Google Jonathan Evans of Skyward Colin Snow of Drone Analysis and Gerald Kinn of ESRI round out the technical program providing a vision of our UAS future in keeping with the symposium theme of “Change is in the Air”. The speakers listed are a subset of the full list of UAS industry leaders that are part of the technical program. The full list of speaker’s biographies and presentation abstracts are available on the symposium website at

 UAS developers sensor manufacturers software developers government agencies survey/mapping firms agriculture firms and companies from UAS-related industries are signing up for exhibit space and sponsorships. Exhibitors and sponsors include Velodyne GeoCue ESRI Airware Aeryon DroneDeploy Pix4D Simactive Topcon and Trimble to name a few. Exhibit space and sponsorship opportunities are still available.Attendees at the symposium will not be just sitting in their chairs. The program includes networking events live demos and opportunities for hands-on experiences.
