There won't be any Predators preying on the unsuspecting at the Small Unmanned Systems Business Expo being held in San Francisco on July 25-26, but rather a group of entrepreneurs praying that they can bring enlightenment to the masses by extolling the values of their small unmanned vehicles.
Sponsored by the sUAS News Group, the group is hoping to change the narrative and broaden the perception of “drones”.
“They have gotten a bad rap and there is a running misconception that they are going to be used to look in people’s windows,” says Patrick Egan, President of the Silicon Valley chapter of the Association of Unmanned Vehicle Systems, Int’l. “We see them being used in search and rescue operations, wildlife management, forestry protection, waterway and levy surveys , as well as feeding a hungry world,” he said. “The positive uses for this technology are endless.”
The world of unmanned vehicles is far broader than many realize, encompassing a range of technologies from land vehicles such as Google’s driverless cars, to surface and subsurface water craft used to explore, map and survey our oceans, lakes and rivers.
Worldwide, the unmanned vehicle industry is growing rapidly, and, not unlike the growth of the internet, people are actively creating applications that few people would envision.
One of the finalists in the Gates Foundation Grand Challenge has created an unmanned aerial vehicle to deliver life saving vaccines to remote locations. Domino’s UK is experimenting with a system that will allow pizza delivery via multi copter.
The OppiKoppi festival in South Africa is promising beer delivery to the festival goers via multicopter so fans need not leave the pit; all GPS coordinated of course. Meanwhile, US aerial vehicles are getting more print space than airspace as they idle on the runway awaiting FAA regulation.
“California has had many firsts in aviation and we are continuing that tradition as this business event will be the first of its kind, with speakers, exhibitors, and an opportunity to pilot a drone,” said Egan. “This will be a great opportunity for people to walk through the door of a new era in unmanned, robotic technology.”

Yes, there is a list. If you go to the website http://www.susbexpo.com
and click on speakers you'll see the line up. The line up will probably change up a little, but most of the folks have had success in the field.
Come on out. It would be great to meet some of the folks off the runryder.

If I can work out the logistics we'll stream it and take questions from folks watching. We plan on recording it and posting it at the very least.

It is all about changing the narrative by bringing professional RCAP into the daylight.

Definitely a "Who's who" in the UAS industry. Must be significant.

Looks like Dr. Jerry Lemuix is getting more involved with his UAV program.

We discuss what to expect at the SUS Business Expo and the California UAS Portal.

Without exaggeration this is shaping up to be a once in a lifetime event.

So glad so many are doing this for us. Thank You!

Friends don't encourage friends to fly helis! It can cause part shortages.

Thank you! We decided (sUAS News et al) that it was high time to change the narrative. It can no longer be said that the UAS small business doesn't exist!

Wish I could be there. I have a lot of expensive equipment just sitting around waiting on the FAA rules. I need this equipment to start providing a return on investment.

I thought our government was concerned about jobs creation. I guess that was only political rhetoric. Maybe things will change now that the big defense contractors have their small UASs ready for production and sale.

The show is technically sold out! Wow, top notch conversations and views. Ted Wierzbanowski (ASTM F-38 Chair), laid the cards on the table about where the small UAS rule is.

We had over a 130 watching live yesterday and we'll be streaming it again live today.

We'll get the live Lidar demo

Dr. John Appleby from DHS

Gus Calderon for IsisCopter

and other... don't miss it.
