DARTdrones Drone Inspections Training Workshop Following AUVSI Xponential 2019 Co-Hosted by FLIR

Utilizing drones to conduct inspections across numerous industries have proven to minimize worksite mishaps, dramatically decrease time and increase data accuracy. However, obtaining the appropriate training is a critical component to see return on investment (ROI) from drone technology.

DARTdrones is pleased to announce FLIR Systems, Inc. as co-host for our drone inspections training workshop in May 2019.  FLIR Systems is the world’s largest producer of thermal cameras and the market leader in drone thermal technology. Their cameras and solutions are ideal for validating roof condition as well as identifying flaws and areas in need of repair.

“FLIR is a strong supporter of drone pilot education. By better understanding thermal technology and how to use FLIR cameras for roof inspections it leads to better deliverables and a stronger network of drone service providers.” said Randall Warnas, Global sUAS Segment Leader for FLIR.

DARTdrones CEO and Co-founder, Abby Speicher Carroll, stated, “DARTdrones is honored to have FLIR co-host the Aerial Roof Inspections course. Learning about the capabilities of utilizing a thermal camera for aerial roof inspections is a key part of the course. Having FLIR drive that point home is going to be a huge asset for our students.”
