The DRONRESPONDERS Global Public Safety UAS Summit presented by AIRT will debut an exciting new format featuring two separate tracks over four-days of programming designed to educate and prepare first responder UAS program managers and remote pilots at every experience level for public safety UAS operations.

Unlike most training courses where a narrow perspective is offered from a small instructor cadre, DRONERESPONDERS is bringing together the best and brightest public safety UAS professionals from around the country to teach you how they built and manage their organization’s drone program. You’ll hear actual case studies and explore after-action reviews of how various departments have used unmanned systems to help save lives and protect property.


Each day of the DRONERESPONDERS Summit will highlight the following content themes:

  • Monday, August 16 — Major Cities Day (limited to jurisdictions with a population of 500,000 or greater)
  • Tuesday, August 17 — Law Enforcement Day
  • Wednesday, August 18 — Fire Rescue / EMS Day
  • Thursday, August 19 — Emergency Management Day

The DRONRESPONDERS Global Public Safety UAS Summit will provide two separate programing tracks that offer content for public safety and emergency services drone professionals at every experience level, from beginner to advanced. Summit attendees will have the ability to transition back and forth between tracks as desired to experience the content modules that are most valuable for their specific public safety UAS operations.

Track A (Alpha) — Public Safety UAS Program Development and Management

Summit Track A (Alpha) will present educational modules consisting of panel discussions that explore the key elements needed for developing and managing a successful public safety UAS program. Examples of the types of topics covered in Track Alpha include:

  • Developing Your Program Roadmap
  • Grants and Budgeting
  • Training and Standardization
  • Fleet Composition and Diversification
  • Coordinating Mutual Assistance
  • Working with the Media/Press
  • Working with the FAA
  • Public and Private Partnerships
  • And more!

Track B (Bravo) — Public Safety UAS Operations and Tactics

Summit Track B (Bravo) will feature specific use cases presented by UAS program managers and remote pilots from public safety agencies that have used drones to make positive impacts within their jurisdiction. Presenters will highlight a specific challenge and how they deployed sUAS to help solve a problem. The presentation will be followed by a group discussion between the presenters and the audience to explore the case in greater detail with the objective of providing an immersive learning experience for attendees.

Whether you are just starting to build out your public safety drone program, or you have several years of experience under your belt, DRONERESPONDERS Global Public Safety UAS Summit attendees will leave Atlanta with the knowledge needed to help your agency or organization be more successful operating drones for public safety missions.

In addition, DRONERESPONDERS attendees will experience the best of what AUVSI XPONENTIAL has to offer including all keynote sessions, networking events, and the massive exhibition floor showcasing the latest unmanned systems and related technology. This is the most comprehensive public safety UAS training experience ever offered under a single roof!
