The Drone World Expo 2017 Interviews  Hector Ubiñas
In the third of a series of interviews with key figures involved in the success of Drone World Expo, we talked to for Hector Ubiñas, Aviation Services Manager, San Diego Gas and Electric. Hector joined SDG&E in September 2016 and has been overseeing the Unmanned Aerial System (UAS) program since starting with the company. In this role, Hector is responsible for the daily operations of the UAS program and continuing to develop new work methods for its application in the utility industry.

At what point in your career did you first become involved with UAS in a professional capacity? Was that during your period with the Navy?

My first involvement with UAS in a professional capacity came during my last tour of duty with the Navy. I was the Aviation Officer onboard the USS New Orleans (LPD 18) in charge of all aviation operations. Not only was the ship operating with the traditional complement of manned aircraft (helicopters), we also had organic UAS assets; Insitu’s Scan Eagle. Our deployment was the first time the ship had to operate with manned and unmanned aircraft simultaneously and I developed the operating procedures to safely integrate both within the ships control zone.

At that time, did you imagine that you might be working with UAS in a commercial capacity?

Not at all. My concept of UAS applications was limited to military operations. I did not realize nor appreciate the many benefits unmanned aircraft bring to the civilian commercial sectors.

Are there any experiences/lessons learned from your military experience that could be beneficial to commercial applications?

Of course. My experience integrating unmanned and manned operations in the maritime environment clearly crosses over to the commercial sector where a major safety concern is how to safely fly a drone amidst manned aircraft. Not only that, the time I spent as an instructor has proven extremely beneficial with developing and leading our internal training program which is helping the scale the UAS program across the enterprise.

Can you tell us about how the UAS Program works at SDG&E?

The UAS Program is housed within our Aviation Services Department where we provide program management and oversight to ensure safe operations. We have a hybrid business model where we use internal and contracted RPICs to conduct work with unmanned aircraft. Drones are used for acquiring data for applications such as aerial assessments of structures to post construction surveys with a LiDAR sensor.

Do you have your own fleet and pilots or do you subcontract?

We have both. Our fleet consists of 15 drones that are mostly DJI Inspires, Phantoms, and Mavics. We have 5 trained RPICs and several more in the training program. Our internal operations are limited to applications that require pictures, videos, or thermal imagery. If a more robust UAS or sensor is required, then we reach out to the experts in the industry and subcontract them to conduct the work (like LiDAR acquisition).

Why did you choose to support Drone World Expo?

DWE is one of the leading commercial drone conferences in the nation and we were honored to be considered to participate in the expo. We recognize the valuable networking opportunity it provides along with the ability to see the latest technological advances the industry has to offer. We are excited to be a part of DWE and look forward to sharing and learning from the many other end users there.

Knight's strategy clearly, today is to be able to cling to garage, will not give him any opportunity, and Kevin durant is always one-to-one with defense. But garage or under heavy defensive hunt for opportunities, such as encounter stephen curry shoes low, he mobilized, utilize other fear his outside ability garage easily scored two points.


The last 80 seconds within the first half, durant had missed shots from outside, your basket three players usually are knights, including Thompson, lebron, because of this, the Treasury rushed in to the basket from the extended position, unexpectedly the offensive rebounds from the knight encirclement! Then they points ball durant, who finished scores!


And your second half, knight to defensive strategy seems to be shaken, they don't have a lot of double again, help, oddly enough, JR in 1 with 1 against Arsenal, and directly put this garage was pushed on the ground.


Sure enough, the actual knight defensive shaken curry shoes immediately after scoring started rising with his Arsenal, outside the 3-pointer by continuous, then he was given the ability to just like Kevin durant got chance inside first half. After three points inside database is still reach, he this section one bomb beneath 14 points.


Today is actually June 1, the time kevin durant shoes will be the international children's day, it seems in the "primary school" is probably the holiday today.


Small garage finish I rested most of the holiday to battle, he is still the contribution for the brilliant stroke, but furthermore pass a 3-pointer through Kevin durant. The past 3 minutes, garage off in front of schedule, because the sport had no suspense.

2 steals in his Strategy, stephen curry shoes in the first quarter, and the two steals to garage earnings of 106 times in the playoffs career steals, that transcends the rick Barry, became the steals inside the history of the warriors team inside playoffs.

Garage into seven three-pointers inside the game, this also let his playoff three-pointers hit number nearly 261, match the Robert horry, 9th three points in playoff record list. Distance comes eighth Chauncey billups, he likewise only six three details.

37 points in just three games, came curry shoes alive, and this is his this season, including playoffs) 9th score 35 + online game with three alone, more than 7 times of Russell westbrook, the top of league.

So many record the initial world war, there is no doubt that the game can be reportedly the garage in this series played the most effective game. The first 3 games, garage is averaging 28. 3 points and 4. 7 rebounds, 6 assists, shooting 40. 3% in addition to 35. 3% from 3, compared with the regular season shooting stage, some degree of decline, even so the game, garage completely ridiculous. The blazers in a number of players to hound your pet, but no one can certainly disturb his rhythm. Storage, as it were, in the game again to learn "day day" feeling.

11 three-point series out hand, hit kd shoes more effective goals, including vast mileage of three points. Wearing warriors baseball hat sitting within the stands to watch the old garage, it also appears to have son's playing god are some incredible performance. The lens on the old garage, he cannot help but shook the head.

Of course, regardless of other people think, garage three points with regards to own performance with overall confidence. In the finally quarter the warriors with 88-58 big lead the blazers, garage outside this three-point line again, the ball away from the one hand, he turned back field, the ball firmly to the basket, the whole uproar. Can put the three points on this state, the other party can say what?

"I got accustomed to my evaluation, " curry were recalled,kd shoes "people said I was too short, don't participate in college basketball, then to the same reason that I cannot play in the NBA. People do not think I can play protect, then said I am not a pure point guard, until October of last year, I also found that the general manager of funny to me as the league 3rd good shooting guard. I've not yet fully perform their full potential, i really set a higher typical to himself, committed to continuously improve to be more outstanding. "


"We've never met you aren't curry shoes him so great shooting everywhere, " warriors coach draw Jackson said, "and rotate, stop and go empty-handed, capture hand, step back, knee, in the face of two double forced to help......, any thought of filming mode, you can see they are astonishingly. We have certainly not seen anyone can reach this level, his Steve Nash (microblogging) played a top level, the two-time MVP honor, shooting is incredible, but it is usually a level. And their other like reggie burns, Chris mullin, such because dell and I enjoyed together - Ellis, dell -- Arsenal, they are many fantastic striker, but these people didn't garage so detailed, this guy is simply no limit. "


Timer as well as dance, 6 minutes stephen curry shoes and 30 seconds, Davis is doing everything we can to nearby the garage, but still late step. Garage again to perform a beautiful jumper - it isn't really strictly jumper, his toe will be out from the ground, under the condition on the body is still rising, use forefinger and middle finger touch to perform the hand. Treasury entire body slightly back. This not only makes his moves even more complicated to block, as well as between the ball and floor a great additional 10 degrees Angle. NBA players to occasion takes 0. 6 seconds an average of, the garage from getting ready action to dial your ball moves, it merely takes 0. 4 mere seconds. Fast to make up for the deficiency of the shed height, the ball well prevent the opponent blocking fly toward the basket along the way, the look of garage is actually along with them. His arm still moves when the posture, and of their teammates has begun for you to pose three gestures...

Garage underneath the stephen curry shoes second dribbling is toward the switch on the left side in the body without any slowdown, the footsteps choiceness and rapid, soon arrived at the position you would like to go. Unlike most pitcher like the middle of gravity down, then struggled to jump to complete, the garage action more concise. Don't waste any time and effort, just jump off the floor, slightly triggered his firing action instantly. "He is not only probably the most pure great scorer, he even gave shot two words to make the definition, the complete shooting art played a revolutionary role. "The bobcats scalp scout work Adam -- Mr Libby said Treasury.


Counter-top frames in 6 moments and 31 seconds, garage from his chest slightly next point position organized the ball, the index finger and also middle finger instinct to uncover gaps in the plastic ball center. His wrist gently lifted back, left his palm the ball, but still control concerning his fingers. His right arm into all the joints is close for you to 90 degree Angle, from the shoulder to the knee, from the elbow towards wrist, from wrist to make reference to, as if a eating place waiter in carrying the tray.


Glen Davis clippers, 289 - pound before, curry shoes need to speed up their action from the Treasury, since the childhood to lay a great foundation for complete to garage in any state, the right arm and shooting are able to keep perfect posture and power. And in addition to perfect hand movements, garage features a precise shot needed a different factor: enough deep muscles memory. Shooting touch seriously isn't a proper adjective, anybody player, able to throw a good shooting there is but one secret to all - day after day, year after year exercise, until a set associated with complex dynamic chain implanted into parts of your muscles. Garage never resist including monks meditate boring exercise, it also helped when he graduated from high school, eventually grow into a different leading little-known Davidson college or university NCAA elite last eight.


"Game changing, there is no time to kevin durant shoes you see your own shooting actions is correct, " curry stated, "you can only depend upon their daily at the courses ground building muscle memory, hit and believe that we can. We're so many practice in training, as a way to the game, you can rely on instinct to react. But if it is not in the correct way, the game will think very strange. ".

Like a core point guard, garage and other three split the difference is that he is the team recruit and organizer. In some other words, he can't end up like novak on the perimeter around expecting kevin durant shoes someone else to allow him the ball. We take novak to some comparison, everything also - reference counted for individuals each a 3-pointer facilitates objects, and to moment, after statistics, novak found in 2010 hit 3-pointers, 149, 146 is often a teammate's pass and reach; Three-point shots hit the 2nd more this season Ryan - Anderson isn't any exception, he hit curry shoes within 213, has 206 relies upon your friend's passing.


The garage He each of the 3-pointer this season, you will discover 105 of 3 is just not sending (272), basically, is to create chances, nasty sto vote. This trick in the team's star, such since flow of harden, vladimir radmanovic, kobe Bryant, Paul, but often because another person errs, physical strength use, to the number of times few, and the hit ratio just isn't high. But obviously is an exception in the Treasury, his three-point shot 105 times isn't assists quantity highest throughout alliance,stephen curry shoes even better compared to lebron James thrown in more all 3-pointers, along with the shooting is in some sort of league all five this kind of not assists free-throw shooting players fr om the fifth (41. 8%), the two quality and quantity. Used together, the three points in order to thrown into space isn't an easy thing, should have the forty percent three-point shots need to create his own photographs, this how tired! By far the most precious is, no make any difference when and wh ere, and learning to make moves, garage has an increased percentage. It is no wonder how the manager of the warriors when Bob myers just lately told the Associated Media said: "as long since it's garage, to receive the ball is reasonable. inches.
