UAS, Safety; Operations
Instructor: Joshua Brown

Uncrewed aircraft systems (UASs), or drones, have forever reshaped the face of modern public safety and governmental operations. The use of these devices has become a hot topic of discussion and, in some cases, sparked legislative action. One of the most important steps for their effective integration is quantifiable education and training. A lack of proper training will pose definite risk to public safety operations. Drones offer an advantage for public safety as their full capabilities are harnessed more fluidly. The need for standardized practices is paramount as these platforms become larger and gain in endurance. Standards and best practices are ready to usher in a new generation of airborne innovation.
