Tuesday 30th March saw Brisbane Chapter host the second technical seminar of 2021, This event was intended to be a hybrid format but the COVID restrictions announced the day before meant a revision to the arrangements to an online event. Around 100 people saw Wing Commander Keirin Joyce of the RAAF and Dr Stefan Hrabar CEO of Emesent present two different approaches to drones and their deployment in asset management activities.

These entertaining and informative presentations generated excellent questions and discussions. The drones in the presentations ranged from fully loaded military Drones to 30 gramme micro version and all sizes in between.

This is an area where technology is moving fast and the outputs and capabilities are ever increasing. Who knows where we will be with this type of capability in 5 years - come back to us in 2026 and we will tell you.
