DroneResponders Summit May 4, 2020

The Association for Unmanned Vehicle Systems International (AUVSI), the world’s largest non-profit organization dedicated to the advancement of unmanned systems and robotics, announced today the first co-located program for AUVSI XPONENTIAL 2020, the world’s largest unmanned systems event. AUVSI and the Airborne International Response Team (AIRT), a 501(c)3 non-profit organization that is home to the DRONERESPONDERS Public Safety Alliance, are partnering to produce the DRONERESPONDERS Global Public Safety UAS Summit and Major Cities Meeting. The summit and meeting will be co-located with XPONENTIAL 2020 at the Boston Convention and Exhibition Center and start on May 4. Public safety and emergency services agencies around the globe are continuing to embrace unmanned aircraft systems (UAS) – also called “drones” – to help save lives and protect property. As the adoption of these amazing new systems increases, so does the need for standardized training and education among first responders. “Increasingly, drones are proving to be essential tools for a wide range of lifesaving missions around the world,” says Brian Wynne, president and CEO of AUVSI. “The DRONERESPONDERS Global Public Safety UAS Summit and Major Cities Meeting at XPONENTIAL 2020 will provide an educational forum to further unite this vital community to provide training, use studies, and best practices for implementing drones to support and protect public safety professionals.” The DRONERESPONDERS Global Summit will kick-off on Monday, May 4 with the Major Cities Meeting – a special invitation-only conclave for UAS program managers and remote pilots representing public safety agencies from the world’s largest
