“Global UAS OPS” is now online. This is an international survey on drone operations (current & upcoming) and is available in English, French & Spanish. The support & reference documents in these languages are also available. Contributions from all countries outside of Europe (see below) are welcome.
The objective of this worldwide survey is to map and bring into perspective:
– The Market Sectors in which drone operations are currently taking place, and will take place in the near future (1 to 2 years from now)
– The Flight Missions currently taking place in these Market Sectors, and anticipated to take place in the near future (1 to 2 years from now)
– The current use of safety risk assessment methods
This survey is specifically targeting feedback from non-European Drone Operators and gives them the opportunity to make their voice heard on the international stage.
