UAVs and Photon Counting

Here are the key highlights from Day 1 at ILMF 2015:

  1. The ASPRS Hot Topics session and the UAV/UAS workshop were very well attended.
  2. Two out of three keynotes focused on UAVs with Dr. Sega stressing a systems approach to the technology and Gretchen West providing a lot of detail on the FAA approval process. It is looking like 2017 before the rules will take affect.
  3. The exhibit hall was very busy throughout the afternoon. There did not seem to be a real standout product announcement with the exception of the Geiger mode system being stood up by Harris.
  4. And on that topic the breakout session on photo counting which included four papers was standing room only.

Looks like a very successful start to this event. I am off to San Francisco this afternoon for REAL 2015. It was great to see Don Weigel, VP of Product for Airware, a start-up that is looking to become the standard software platform for UAVs,
