Measure, a 32 Advisors Company, Launches Drone Tech & Policy Forum Featuring Dr. Greg McNeal
WASHINGTON, DC – March 18, 2015 – Measure, a 32 Advisors Company, is pleased to announce the launch of Dr. Greg McNeal’s Drone Tech & Policy Forum. The Forum is an opportunity to bring together people to discuss the most topical trends, business applications, and breaking news in the drone industry. Access to the Forum will be provided exclusively to Measure’s Drone as a Service® clients.
Today addressing the U.S. House Homeland Security Subcommittee on Oversight and Management, Dr. McNeal said, “Drones are an exciting topic that captures the interest of journalists and the public. The popular attention associated with drones has the benefit of raising awareness about their potential uses, however it also raises the possibility that emotions and sensationalism will drive the crafting of public policy.”
The first Drone Tech & Policy Forum will be held on April 2, 2015 at 12:00PM EST. Dr. McNeal, and his selected guests will tackle the regulatory and privacy issues impacting the industry and debunk myths surrounding the technology. Future Forum topics will include detailed discussions on data delivery via Drone as a Service® in industries such as precision agriculture, oil & gas, state and local public safety, infrastructure inspection, and disaster relief. Dr. McNeal will also address emergent challenges associated with privacy, security, and big data in the commercial operation of drones.
