The Potomac Region of American Society for Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing (ASPRS) announces its 2015 GeoTech Conference focusing on Unmanned Aerial System (UAS) imaging systems. The Conference will be September 23-24, 2015 at George Mason University in Fairfax, Virginia with the theme “Sensor Design Considerations for UAS Platforms”. The event brings together the UAS platform and payload community with users of UAS imaging systems. GeoTech 2015 promotes the exchange of information as the UAS market continues its rapid expansion.
Participants can expect to hear about the most recent advances in UAS platforms and sensors as well as how these sensors are being used by government departments, environmental groups, and commercial entities. The conference will include exhibits by UAS-related organizations as well as a poster session for local college and university students to share UAS-related research.
GeoTech 2015 will have prominent thought leaders to provide keynote addresses: Patrick Egan is the Editor of the Americas Desk at sUAS News, and is the host and Executive Producer of the sUAS News Podcast Series, Drone TV, and the Small Unmanned Systems Business Exposition.
Dr. Bruce Quirk is the UAS Manager at the U.S. Geological Survey and is the ASPRS UAS Division Assistant Director. Additional industry leaders are participating from American Aerospace, Altavian, PrecisionHawk, Icaros, Visual Intelligence, Ready to Drone, the Open Geospatial Consortium, the North Carolina State University Institute for Transportation Research and Education, the Agricultural Research Service Hydrology and Remote Sensing Laboratory, and Botts Innovative Research.
