AUSVI - 'Expanding into New Markets ...'


Strict Standards: Only variables should be passed by reference in /home/defensef/public_html/components/com_zone/handleHTML.php on line 623
AUVSI
: 04 June, 2008  (Company News)
The Association for Unmanned Vehicle Systems International (AUVSI) has announced the lineup of speakers for its landmark panel discussion "Expanding into New Markets: Understanding Barriers to Using Unmanned Systems in Public Safety Applications’ on Tuesday, June 10, 2008 from 2:00 – 4:00 p.m. as part of AUVSI’s Unmanned Systems North America 2008.
Police, fire, search & rescue and other civil authorities will meet with unmanned systems industry leaders to begin defining issues and policy barriers that are currently prohibiting the use of unmanned systems for public safety nationwide.

Panel participants include Captain Charles Campe of the San Diego Sherriff’s Department; Officer Kevin Means of the San Diego Police Department Air Support Unit; Captain James Di Giovanna, Education Program Manager for the Airborne Law Enforcement Association; and Chief Brian Fennessy, Deputy Fire Chief for the San Diego Fire-Rescue Department.

“We are very pleased to have these members of the law enforcement community participating in this important panel,” said AUVSI Executive Vice President and panel moderator John Lambert. “This is a significant step toward making unmanned systems a life-saving partner for our first responders.”

The issues identified during this program will form the basis for AUVSI’s strategic thrust to shape policy, facilitate certifications and transition unmanned systems technology into the civil and commercial sectors. Panelists will outline the potential uses for unmanned systems in their line of work and they will discuss the policy restrictions they face in making the use of unmanned systems a reality. Following input from each panelist the discussion will become an open forum for input from attendees.

Registration for this event is open to the public and is $25. Registration is available online at http://symposium.auvsi.org/show/optionalevents.php#Safety or by phone at +1 703 845 9671 x210. Media registration for this event is complimentary with valid credentials.
