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.

At this time, because Kevin durant, Curry can no longer embodiment that unscrupulous reviewing champion, 15 to 16 year everything can be memories. That year, nonetheless, how many people have a history class record has been overlooked? 15-16, Curry, firing 50. 4%, 45. 4% in threes, free-throw shooting three months. 8%. Yes, Curry performed, in the NBA carries a about the existence of the 180 club, but because of that year Curry is actually too strong, and the particular record to little, often discussed in that year, how much time has been ignored?

As a core point guard, garage along with other three split the difference is that she is the team recruit and organizer. In additional words, he can't be like novak on the perimeter around waiting for kd shoes someone else to give him the ball. We take novak to your comparison, everything also - reference counted for people each a 3-pointer allows objects, and to period, after statistics, novak found shock as to hit 3-pointers, 149, 146 is a teammate's pass and struck; Three-point shots hit the second more this season Ryan - Anderson is no exception, he hit curry shoes inside 213, has 206 relies on your friend's passing.


The garage He all the 3-pointer this season, you'll find 105 of 3 is just not sending (272), basically, is to create prospects, nasty sto vote. This trick in the team's star, such because flow of harden, vladimir radmanovic, kobe Bryant, John, but often because a person errs, physical strength ingestion, to the number of that time period few, and the hit ratio is not high. But obviously is surely an exception in the Treasury, his three-point shot 105 times is just not assists quantity highest throughout alliance,stephen curry shoes even better as compared to lebron James thrown directly into more all 3-pointers, and also the shooting is in some sort of league all five this kind of not assists free-throw shooting players on the fifth (41. 8%), equally quality and quantity. Obtained together, the three points to help thrown into space just isn't an easy thing, have to have the forty percent three-point shots have to create his own shots, this how tired! By far the most precious is, no make any difference when and where, and steps to make moves, garage has a high percentage. It is no wonder how the manager of the enthusiast when Bob myers not long ago told the Associated Media said: "as long seeing that it's garage, to have the ball is reasonable. inch.
