Reinforcing their joint commitment to make unmanned aerial vehicles, or drones, a safe and integral part of every relevant commercial market, Stampede (www.stampedeglobal.com) and Unmanned Vehicle University (www. uxvuniversity.com) today announced that they are showcasing commercial drones and education solutions at Unmanned Systems 2015 in two separate booth locations. Stampede is exhibiting its commercial product line up in Booth #543 and Unmanned Vehicle University is showcasing its education solutions in Booth #1508 in the Georgia World Congress Center in Atlanta, Georgia.
“There are literally hundreds of commercial market applications for function-specific drones and every single one of these applications requires the certification of a trained vehicle operator. That’s why Stampede, North America’s largest distributor of ProAV solutions, has entered into a strategic alliance with the only university in the world licensed to offer graduate degree programs in unmanned vehicle systems engineering,” Stampede President & COO Kevin Kelly said today. “And there is truly no better place to showcase our commercial offerings and Unmanned Vehicle University’s education programs than this show. Stampede and UVU are committed to providing the industry with state-of-the-art products and an approved certification program that teaches people how to use drones in a safe and sanctioned way.”
Stampede is displaying an array of drones from leading manufacturers like DJI, Walkera, AEE, and xFold. “We’re showcasing a range of drones that cover every possible business application,” Kelly emphasized. “No other company has brought together both the products, services and training into one solution that enables our resellers to take full advantage of the opportunities in the marketplace today and prepare for the future.”
Additionally, Unmanned Vehicle University, the first University in the world licensed to grant Doctorate and Masters Degrees in Unmanned (Air, Ground, Sea, and Space) Systems Engineering, is featured in the Stampede booth to highlight the importance of UAV certifications. “Drones are revolutionizing the way businesses operate,” Unmanned Vehicle University Provost John Minor said today. “The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) is working hard to establish the guidelines under which drones can be used in these commercial applications. The one thing they have already made very clear is that properly certified training and education is mandatory. That’s where Unmanned Vehicle University comes in.”
