Introducing remote sensing into your commercial and government operations fundamentally changes how your organization performs those operations. Industries such as oil and gas, rail, and mining have realized significantly improved safety and reduced operating expenses by employing UAS that fly beyond line of sight (BLOS). Applying this capability to public service operations also improves the effectiveness of fire fighting, reducing costs to contain the fire and improving the safety of those fighting the fires and those living nearby. Insitu chairs a panel of individuals who will share first-hand the benefits of BLOS remote sensing.
