North Carolina Department of Transportation to host UAS workshop in Wilmington



In an effort to show the benefits of UAS, and help potential users learn about the technology, the North Carolina Department of Transportation (NCDOT) will host its third UAS workshop of the year on Thursday, September 28.

The workshop, which is being hosted by NCDOT’s Division of Aviation Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) Program Office, will focus on commercial and government UAS operations and data management, so state and local government personnel are encouraged to attend, but local commercial UAS operators are also invited as well.

The workshop will include presentations, networking opportunities, and live flight demonstrations.

“Drone technology is quickly advancing, and so are the possibilities for a business or government organization interested in using one,” says Basil Yap, UAS Program Manager for NCDOT

“The folks in attendance can expect to come away with a realistic understanding of the possible applications for drone technology, and what it takes to effectively implement drones into their operations.”

The workshop will be held in Wilmington, North Carolina at Cape Fear Community College. Previous workshops this year were held in Charlotte and Asheville. A fourth workshop is scheduled for October 12 in Thomasville.
