Tech Tuesday Session 20 – UAV and DroneUp

Session 20: UAV and DroneUp

June 21, 2022 – 12-1:00p EST

Speaker: Tom Walker – DroneUp

https://www.droneup.com/

In modern times, drones seem to be on everybody’s mind. From the military use of drones overseas to services that deliver domestic packages with drones, these flying machines have proven their worth. However, many people are still confused by drones and their purpose.  A commercial drone is a quadcopter, octocopter, hexacopter, or other multi-rotor craft that is used for commercial purposes rather than personal or recreational use.

DroneUp (founded in 2016 and is headquartered in Virginia Beach, VA) is an American technology company that combines airspace solutions, software applications, analytics platforms, and a trusted team of industry leaders to help companies operate at scale with drone innovation

In 2021, DroneUp received a significant investment from the #1 retailer in the world, Walmart, Inc.

Attend this session to learn about how DroneUp has captured some of the delivery space for Walmart, as well as various public services across the country.
