Public Safety agencies throughout the United States continue to explore the practical applications for Unmanned Aviation Systems (UAS). In this two-part series, you will hear from several agencies that have made significant headway in the deployment of UAS in support of their agency’s mission. The discussion will include a brief description by each speaker as to how their respective agency deploys UAS and under what form of FAA authorization (COA, Blanket COA, Part 107, etc.) they are operating. The discussions will include the perceived benefits and shortfalls for each option. Additionally, agencies will identify best practices learned through navigating the FAA authorization process and UAS operation procedures.
