13 Takeaways from The White House Workshop

13 Takeaways from The White House Workshop
The White House launched a new effort Tuesday to help increase the use of drones and showcased how government agencies have become a proving ground for a wide array of new drone concepts and technologies.

The workshop, hosted by the Office of Science and Technology Policy, outlined some interesting use cases for drone technology that the Federal government is leading the way on, as well as an aggressive agenda for boosting the profile of drones in the U.S. economy. Here are 13 interesting facts that came out of the workshop.

1.The FAA has registered more than 520,000 drone operators in the last eight months. “To put that in perspective, we have only 320,000 registered manned aircraft on the aircraft registry of the United States and it took us 100 years to get there,” said FAA Administrator Michael Huerta.

2.The size of the consumer Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) market is estimated to be approximately $16 billion. The commercial UAV market is projected to reach $4 billion by 2020. Over the next decade, the estimates are that drones will contribute approximately $80 billion to the U.S. economy.

3.To be able to safely operate multiple drones at once is going to become a critical factor for commercialization. Potential uses for multiple drones include search-and-rescue operations, delivery, or inspections of large structures, such as bridges. Current tests have successfully managed 100 drones through a single operator console. Work is underway to be able to scale that to potentially 1,000 or more drones, according to Intel Corp. CEO Bryan Krzanich.

4.There remain a number of significant regulatory challenges to integrating drones into the national airspace system, including privacy, spectrum usage, safety, and scalability. We are literally at the edge of developing drones that operators cannot run into other objects, Krzanich said.

5.Lockheed Martin has developed ground collision avoidance software for the F-16 fighter jet in the event of pilot loss of consciousness or control. That software has saved at least two pilots during recent operations. That type of technology can be applied to an unmanned system to prevent it from entering a restricted area, said Robert Ruszkowski, director of Advanced Air Dominance and Unmanned Systems Aeronautics at Lockheed Martin. I think there’s a lot of technology thats on the shelf, its ready to go and its been proven.

6.Drones have become a critical tool for the Department of Interior, which manages 500 million acres of land in the U.S. and 1.7 billion acres on the outer continental shelf. Drones are contributing to Interiors various missions of fire suppression, mine inspections, oil spill response, and critical infrastructure monitoring.

7.The future of unmanned systems at Interior includes a mix of in-house and contractor operated UAVs, a cloud strategy for data processing, and a 50 percent increase in DOI aviation users. By FY 2019, DOI will have in place procedures for rapid data processing of UAV-acquired data using the cloud. This will dramatically reduce the time needed to process imagery at a local office.

8.DOI will share near-real-time fire location information with the public by July 2017 as part of a multifaceted effort to prevent unauthorized drone incursions over active wildfires.

9.The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) is actively researching high-altitude, long-endurance UAVs that can be used for real-time weather data in the event of a problem with a satellite system.

10.Within the next year, NOAA plans to deploy an optionally piloted UAV. This is a medium-altitude aircraft that will be used to collect precise gravity measurements. NOAA collects gravity measurements across the entire United States and converts them into vertical elevation data of the surface. That data is used for flood plain mapping and preparing for hurricanes, tsunamis, and storm surges along coastal areas.

11.Within the next few years, were looking at how to use [UAVs] to collect weather data in real time and be able to put that data into our weather forecast models, said Robbie Hood, NOAAs unmanned aircraft systems director. NOAA has a study underway now using both a high-altitude UAV and a UAV that can be launched from a manned aircraft that can fly above storms and provide higher resolution data than is currently available via satellites.

12.NASA and the FAA are launching a data exchange working group under the UAS Traffic Management (UTM) Research Transition Team (RTT) to address the challenge of coordinating information between operators, entities that use UTM to perform services, and the FAA. This group will develop a consistent format for data to be shared across the affected parties with recommendations slated for release in FY 2017.

13.The United States Postal Service Office of Inspector General plans to publish new findings and analysis on the publics rapidly evolving opinion of drone delivery as a potential future logistics technology.

As being a core point guard, garage along with three split the difference is that she is the team attract and organizer. In some other words, he can't become novak on the perimeter around anticipating kevin durant shoes someone else to offer him the ball. We take novak into a comparison, everything also - reference counted for us each a 3-pointer helps objects, and to moment, after statistics, novak found in 2010 hit 3-pointers, 149, 146 is really a teammate's pass and hit; Three-point shots hit the 2nd more this season Ryan - Anderson isn't exception, he hit curry shoes with 213, has 206 relies on your friend's passing.


The garage He all of the 3-pointer this season, you'll find 105 of 3 is not sending (272), to put it differently, is to create chances, nasty sto vote. This trick inside team's star, such while flow of harden, vladimir radmanovic, kobe Bryant, John, but often because another person errs, physical strength consumption, to the number of times few, and the hit ratio just isn't high. But obviously can be an exception in the Treasury, his three-point shot 105 times isn't assists quantity highest with alliance,stephen curry shoes even better than lebron James thrown straight into more all 3-pointers, as well as the shooting is in the league all five like not assists free-throw shooting players out on the fifth (41. 8%), both equally quality and quantity. Obtained together, the three points for you to thrown into space is just not an easy thing, need to have the forty percent three-point shots must create his own photos, this how tired! The most precious is, no make a difference when and where, and learning to make moves, garage has a higher percentage. It is no wonder how the manager of the warriors when Bob myers lately told the Associated Media said: "as long because it's garage, to have the ball is reasonable. ".

Throw three points is just not the whole garage daily work, and don't overlook, Stephen curry is the team in assists in addition to steals, he averaged 6. 7 assists inside the regular season, 14 inside league and the playoffs stephen curry shoes can be averaging 9. 3 assists because the league the first! Let's imagine an image, 40 minutes per game in the Treasury, attack launched a large number of times, there are always a few ball he wasn't inside outside, but the soccer ball inside, attracted a two times... What will happen after that? There was a man the guy can tell you the response, curry shoes he called clay -- Thompson, from the gold state warriors, he made this year 211 3-pointers, finished third inside league, and that 211 3-pointers, 68 comes from the assists of Stephen curry.


12-13 period to contrast the car port and ray Allen in '05 -' 06 - Allen into 269 3-pointers, and he could be the Seattle supersonics. That will year, Allen's 269 of 653 three-point shots, shot 41. 2%, as Stephen : 272 of 600 pictures in his Arsenal, as high as 45. 3%; That 12 months, Alan ball attack develop 3 ratio is under a quarter, compared having 38. 6% in data source; That year, Allen's assists the phone number 3. 7, less as opposed to Treasury for three allows. So the outline, the image associated with an alternative 3-pointers hand straight down the garage outline: he not merely completed the sharpshooter backdrop, his teammates for their creation of free-throw prospects into; He will also look for opportunities while doing so, through the ball development, stopped for no facilitates 3-pointer of shots. Additionally, he also can complete assists, "create" another glass pitcher - clay - Thompson! Not just can catch vote, may also urgent stopped, can generate more opportunities to other folks, this star, unique! I am kd shoes afraid, just use "striker" two words are actually unable to define Stephen curry, should be in with a "great" rhetoric.
