Space Technology in Support of the Drone Industry
A discussion on the use of space technology in support of the drone industry now and in the future
This live streamed discussion is part of a series of virtual events aiming to increase awareness of the commercial opportunities that drone operations could provide.
For our sixth discussion, we are focussing on the space industry.
There are a great number of applications for autonomous systems within this sector and this panel aims to discuss:
Drone technology which is already making a difference
The next era of technology being funded and how
Challenges in getting drone technology from the testing phase into operations
Solutions to those challenges
The event is aimed at anyone within the port and maritime sector responsible for exploring the adoption of drone technology.
It is being run by the not-for-profit, Drone Delivery Group, set-up as a vehicle for the drone industry to voice its views on the commercial drone industry to the Government. The aim of the event is to provide those responsible for considering drone use for their organisations with the information they need to bridge this gap and more quickly realise the benefits of drone technology.
These panel discussions build on the success of the ‘Commercialisation of the Drone Industry” White Paper submitted to Government in July this year. The Drone Delivery Group hopes to provoke discussion to highlight the challenges faced by industry in general, the drone industry in particular and the UK Government, as a means to speed up the development and benefits this emerging area of technology could provide to the UK economy.
