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.

After a brought the first curry shoes baseball, a garage at this match: each other laid out a perfect diamond entry, teammate Steve Blake flew to check out up, left the clippers protect darren collison (microblogging) the length between two steps behind their closely, Danny granger would be the only defender in tow. This is the shed superior court intuition and knowing that embodies: his shot variety. He seems to understand the defensive player in the ideas, can predict their next move, then strike ahead of time.

A pair of steals in his System, stephen curry shoes in the first 1 fourth, and the two steals to garage an overall total of 106 times inside playoffs career steals, which transcends the rick Craig, became the steals inside history of the warriors team inside the playoffs.

Garage into seven three-pointers in the game, this also let his playoff three-pointers hit number around 261, match the Robert horry, 9th three points in playoff heritage list. Distance comes eighth Chauncey billups, he furthermore only six three things.

37 points in only three games, came curry shoes alive, and this is his this season, including playoffs) 8th score 35 + activity with three alone, greater than 7 times of Russell westbrook, the top of league.

So many record the very first world war, there is no doubt the game can be considered the garage in this series played the top game. The first several games, garage is averaging 29. 3 points and 5. 7 rebounds, 6 aids, shooting 40. 3% in addition to 35. 3% from three, compared with the frequent season shooting stage, some degree of decline, nevertheless the game, garage completely crazy. The blazers in a number of players to hound them, but no one can easily disturb his rhythm. Car port, as it were, in the game again to discover "day day" feeling.

11 three-point brand out hand, hit kd shoes several goals, including vast mileage of three points. Wearing warriors baseball hat sitting inside stands to watch the actual old garage, it also appears to obtain son's playing god appear to be some incredible performance. The lens towards the old garage, he can't help but shook his / her head.

Of course, regardless of other people think, garage three points because of their own performance with total confidence. In the finally quarter the warriors together with 88-58 big lead this blazers, garage outside your three-point line again, the ball faraway from the one hand, they turned back field, the ball firmly in the basket, the whole pandemonium.

Throw three points seriously isn't the whole garage daily work, and don't ignore, Stephen curry is the particular team in assists and also steals, he averaged 6. 7 assists inside the regular season, 14 in the league and the playoffs stephen curry shoes will be averaging 9. 3 assists for the reason that league the first! Let's imagine images, 40 minutes per game inside Treasury, attack launched dozens of times, there are always some ball he wasn't in the outside, but the baseball inside, attracted a twice... What will happen then? There was a man he'll tell you the remedy, curry shoes he called clay -- Thompson, from the fantastic state warriors, he made this season 211 3-pointers, finished third inside league, and that 211 3-pointers, 68 hails from the assists of Stephen curry.


12-13 year to contrast the storage and ray Allen with '05 -' 06 -- Allen into 269 3-pointers, and he or she is the Seattle supersonics. Which year, Allen's 269 connected with 653 three-point shots, opportunity 41. 2%, as Stephen -- 272 of 600 shots in his Arsenal, as high as 45. 3%; That calendar year, Alan ball attack develop 3 ratio is less than a quarter, compared together with 38. 6% in repository; That year, Allen's assists the quantity 3. 7, less versus Treasury for three facilitates. So the outline, the image of an alternative 3-pointers hand along the garage outline: he not simply completed the sharpshooter backdrop, his teammates for their creation of free-throw possibilities into; He will also look for opportunities while doing so, through the ball development, stopped for no assists 3-pointer of shots. Additionally, he also can go assists, "create" another pitcher - clay - Thompson! Not merely can catch vote, may also urgent stopped, can produce more opportunities to others, this star, unique! Now i am kd shoes afraid, just use "striker" two words have been unable to define Stephen curry, must also be in with a new "great" rhetoric.

Finals last season, Arsenal's performance kevin durant shoes isn't very ideal, although your data well, but the efficiency is not high, and his returning pass error, defensive irvine was manufactured key 3 points are getting to be a "black spots" minute, apparently, in hope that on this to prove himself.


Absolutely no, after the opening, the three points inside database and didn't attack two shots, on the contrary, the knight about three points would hit a lot of over there. Garage or consentrate on defense, he para including lebron, Irwin, JR., has been people already, also get successful prevention.


In moving, did well in this Treasury, the ball with a teammate are fed appropriately, but Mr Chu in lots of opportunity attack. 04 seconds left from the first quarter, garage dribble on the frontcourt, rhythm, but he could be confident the take a couple of steps away from the three-point line and it's necessary to make curry shoes moves, the ball! This is additionally the warriors in the initial 3-pointer today. Soon, the Treasury and using second chances on the right side of the base again in a 3 items!


It is worth mentioning that this opening, the garage appropriate arm was wearing a black gear, it is usually because his right elbow in the game before the old injury has a relapse, however, with the experience, he has to take off protective devices. Gear, it seems, has affected the cope with, before he took off after i feel much better.


Within against lebron James, the defense does very well in their Arsenal, but after he was lebron was a knocked out, the referee offers stephen curry shoes blown the garage preventing foul, garage on the floor is various, make action towards referee said lebron shoulder.


In breakthrough, garage is usually a difficult moves, a myriad of people all the way up his defense, which includes lebron, but Treasury first in all sorts of dazzling dribble move Thompson, after air and rival impact cases, the hard to help score.

"I got used to my evaluation, " curry were recalled,kd shoes "people said I ended up being too short, don't perform college basketball, then for that same reason that I can not play in the NBA. People don't think I can play defend, then said I am not really a pure point guard, until October of a year ago, I also found that this general manager of funny if you ask me as the league third good shooting guard. I've not yet fully play their full potential, i really set a higher regular to himself, committed to continuously improve to become more outstanding. "


"We've never met anyone with curry shoes him so great shooting everywhere, " warriors coach mark Jackson said, "and throw, stop and go empty-handed, find hand, step back, leg, in the face involving two double forced to help......, any thought of taking pictures mode, you can see he is astonishingly. We have never ever seen anyone can accomplish this level, his Steve Nash (microblogging) played a superior level, the two-time MVP award, shooting is incredible, but it is also a level. And his / her other like reggie miller, Chris mullin, such seeing that dell and I played out together - Ellis, dell -- Arsenal, they are all fantastic striker, but they didn't garage so extensive, this guy is zero limit. "


Timer and also dance, 6 minutes stephen curry shoes in addition to 30 seconds, Davis has been doing everything we can to near the garage, but still late step. Garage again to finish a beautiful jumper - it isn't really strictly jumper, his toe will be out of your ground, under the condition from the body is still rising, use forefinger and middle finger touch to complete the hand. Treasury system slightly back. This not only makes his moves difficult to block, as well as relating to the ball and floor on an additional 10 degrees Viewpoint. NBA players to time period takes 0. 6 seconds usually, the garage from organizing action to dial the actual ball moves, it simply takes 0. 4 mere seconds. Fast to make up to the deficiency of the storage area height, the ball well pun intended, the opponent blocking fly toward the basket in the operation, the look of garage is obviously along with them. His arm still moves if your posture, and of his teammates has begun in order to pose three gestures...
