While other companies continue to offer stand-alone product offerings to a rapidly growing and expanding UAV market comprised of many vertical channel opportunities, Stampede, North America’s largest distributor of UAV solutions, is showcasing a full range of Drone Video System solutions comprised of drone hardware, command and control software, services and add-ons at XPONENTIAL 2016. The showcase, which includes hardware from drone manufacturers, educators, software developers, and add-on attachment suppliers, is taking place at Stampede Booth #437 in the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center in New Orleans.
"We're not providing the unmanned systems community with an idea of where the industry is headed, but rather we're showing the community how to implement a fully deployed drone solution that can meet the needs of any commercial vertical market,” Stampede President & COO Kevin Kelly said today. “Thousands of attendees from dozens of vertical markets are attending this show, and we are committed to providing every one of them with a state-of-the-art solution with an approved certification program that educates them on how to use drones in a safe and sanctioned way.”
Stampede is displaying an array of drones from leading manufacturers such as DJI, AEE, XCraft, XFLY, FreeFly, and Yuneec, alongside services and education from Unmanned Vehicle University and UA Solutions Group; Command & Control software from VideoBank, Smart C2 (Virtual Air Boss), Samsung, and Vidyo; and Add-Ons from Amimom, Agrowing and Trackimo.
“We’re showcasing a range of drones, educational services, command and control software and add-ons that cover every possible application,” Kelly asserted. “No other company demonstrates the business opportunities offered by drones the way we do.”
Drone Video Systems is an entirely new category spearheaded by Stampede that compiles drone hardware, add-ons, command and control, and brings them in-house so that businesses in every vertical market, for the first time ever, have a one-stop shop for customizable drone-based solutions. “A Drone Video System connects leading commercial equipment, such as video conferencing software, command and control, and data storage, with a drone,” Kelly said. “This makes drone integration much more simple and effective for operators to deploy.”
The Association for Unmanned Vehicle Systems International (AUVSI) is hosting XPONENTIAL 2016, the largest trade show for the unmanned systems and robotics industry, from May 2 to 5 at the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center in New Orleans. Over 8,000 industry leaders and professionals from more than 55 countries are expected to come together to discuss the latest innovations in the unmanned systems market.
