Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) for Rapid Response Operations -- Demonstration and Exercise held August 4th and August 9th
The North Alabama UAS for Rapid Response Operations Demonstration was conducted on August 4th at John Hunt Park in Huntsville Alabama. Over 75 people representing dozens of organizations participated in briefings, exercise walk through and live flight demonstrations of current UAS platforms and payloads to support first responder missions. The day served as a means to orient stakeholders to the exercise held on August 9th, 2016 at the Huntsville Utilities Jordan Road site in northeast Huntsville. Our thanks to the many volunteers, responders, and agency heads that made this demonstration and exercise a great success.
Our special thanks to EnrGies Huntsville for providing the UAS flight support teams, platforms and payloads in support of this effort.
