The UAVSA Drone Expo
On Saturday, December 13,
the UAVSA (Unmanned Autonomous Vehicle Systems Association) presents the
first-ever Drone Expo at the Los Angeles Memorial Sports Arena. Open to
the general public, this all-day event aims to serve a growing community
of entrepreneurs, professionals and enthusiasts designed to inform,
educate and discuss how this technology can be better and safely
utilized for business, health, public safety, urban planning,
entertainment and other commercial purposes.
The UAVSA has recruited a wide-range of sponsors and supporters whose
expertise cover multiple and diverse aspects of this ever-expanding
technology from the crowd funding and launch of cutting-edge drones, to
new software and tools for building, flying and operating drones.
"There is a revolution underway and drones are a key part of that
revolution, and they are here to stay. What was once the realm of
hobbyists is now essential in our national security and is rapidly
becoming a major tool in our economy," states Wil Cashen, Chairman of
the UAVSA Systems Association and founder of the Tesla Foundation Group,
which incubated the Association. "UAV technologies are creating the
personal airways for the future of human transportation and commerce."
The Association is in line with the Tesla Foundation Group's goals to
help ensure that the next generation of students and workers have access
to training, compliant use, and technological innovation.
The event will feature more than three dozen exhibitors, ongoing panels
and a dedicated "Fly Zone" for live drone demonstrations. Speakers and
exhibitors include Homeland Surveillance & Electronics (HSE), 3D
Robotics, Aerial Media Pros, GoPro Cases, Zeiss, UC Berkeley and many
more. Learn4Life the Tesla Foundation's education partner will be on
hand, and the winner of a giveaway for a Phantom 2 Aerial Photography
Drone (valued at more than $600) will be announced.
The day will feature an extensive range of keynotes and panels including
the current legal and ethical ramifications of this new technology by
Lisa Ellman, former White House counsel on UAS, of McKenna, Long &
Aldridge LLP's Unmanned Aircraft Systems Practice Group; Bryan Sanders,
Homeland Surveillance & Electronics, Brandon Basso, 3D Robotics; Klever
Freire, DreamQii; Michelle Moskowitz, Director, Advocacy and
Institutional, Government and Community Relations UC Berkeley; Louis
Stuart, California Governor's Office of Innovation/GoBiz; and consultant
and former Executive Vice President of UAVSI, Gretchen West.
Also speaking, is Raja Sengupta, a UC Berkeley professor who is the
co-lead on the UAS INSIGHT Team for the FAA sanctioned Grant Bid for a
Center of Excellence. The Tesla Foundation Group is working with UC
Berkeley in the FAA Standards and Information Technology Solutions Grant
Bid for the Registration and Tracking of all UAV vehicles in the
national air space. The consortium will utilize and innovate the next
level of information technology and sensor technology to create the
registration, tracking, data acquisition, and regulatory standards for
operations of UAV vehicles in the American airspace for all commercial
and civilian use and the integration of all airspace vehicles.
