On Thursday May 29, 2014, Dave Kroetsch, Aeryon’s President & CEO, was featured on 570 News Midday with Eric Drozd as part of Communitech’s Tech Leadership Conference 2014. In this interview, Dave talks about Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS), and the markets and applications that can benefit from UAS technology.
Dave Kroetsch, President & CEO, Aeryon Labs spoke with Howard Green, on BNN'sHeadline with Howard Green about the growing unmanned aerial systems (UAS) market in Canada. The interview (starting at 5:45 min) highlights how Aeryon sUAS are designed for professional applications and provide solutions that are safe and easy-to-use, and operate reliability in harsh weather conditions. Aeryon sUAS set the standard for immediate aerial image and data collection and have proven results in a variety of applications including:
The Alaska Center for UAS Integration (ACUASI) selects Aeryon sUAS to demonstrate how unmanned aerial systems can be used to improve pipeline safety operations and best practices.
Waterloo, ON – May 14, 2014 – Aeryon Labs announces that Aeryon small Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS) will be used by the Alaska Center for UAS Integration (ACUASI) to conduct research relating to pipeline operations. The research program will focus on how Vertical Take-Off and Landing (VTOL) sUAS platforms can be used for monitoring pipeline integrity, inspecting new construction, geotechnical engineering and emergency response.
On Sunday May 11, 2014 Aeryon Labs participated in a sUAS-only demonstration at NASA’s Kennedy Space Center. The focus of the event, sponsored by AUVSI and Space Florida, was to show how sUAS are a beneficial technology that can be used safely in a variety of public safety and commercial applications for collecting aerial images and data.
The following is an excerpt from an article in 4GWar about the demonstration:
The demonstration included four research scenarios: crop health monitoring, searching for a lost or injured person, monitoring mock wildfire and disaster scenes.
The University of Alaska Fairbanks unmanned aerial system (UAS) test site is operational and is granted FAA authorization for wildlife flight operations using the Aeryon Scout.
Waterloo, ON – May 6, 2014 – Aeryon Labs is pleased to announce that the Aeryon Scout™ has been selected as the small Unmanned Aerial System (UAS) to perform the wildlife surveys during the University of Alaska Fairbanks (UAF) Pan-Pacific test flight operations which began this week.
The FAA has granted the UAF a Certificate of Authorization (COA) to conduct authorized flights using the Aeryon Scout to collect images and data that will validate how a sUAS can be used to accurately locate, identify and count large animal populations within the University of Alaska Fairbanks Large Animal Research Station (LARS). The data collected will also be used to develop standards for operating in close proximity to airports in all UAF test locations – Alaska, Oregon and Hawaii.
