Technology around drones is accelerating slightly faster than Moore’s Law. The imagery drones can capture, payloads they can carry, and the diverse missions they can fly are based on the technological advancement in the drone field. Airframes, controllers, navigation, batteries, imagery sensors, and software are all advancing at an almost feverish pace. Were this is exciting, it is also a challenge for utilities to select the right platform and sensors for the missions their drone or drones need to fly. In this session, we will have industry experts and utilities share their insights on the technology and how they see utilities using drone technology to improve their utility operations today and in the near future.

  • Field types, airframes, controllers, first person view, optics, battery chemistry and temperature
  • Licensing, certifications, registration and safety
