Join us for a fun and educational event on the theme of Aerial Robotics, Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS) or Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV), otherwise know as drones.

Drones came into the public eye in recent years through the news about their military uses, but they are gaining some serious momentum in civil applications as well. Some regard this as a sweeping technical revolution, with far-reaching consequences and possibilities. Come find out what Oregon companies are doing in this new and exciting industry vertical!

Weather permitting, we're planning for a demonstration session of some drones outside the venue.

After the demo, we will have a panel discussion about the state of the industry, and where our panelists see things going. There will be plenty of opportunity for networking and Q&A!

Panelists include:

  • Ryan Jenson - CEO/Founder of HoneyCombM
  • Jonathan Evans - CEO/Co-founder of SkyWard
  • Scott Edwards - founder of the @PDXDrones group and cofounder of Silicon Sky Meetup (and Director of Marketing and Customer Acquisition at Simple Finance by day)
  • Wendie Kellington - Attorney specializing in regulated industries, such as unmanned flight and use of public airspace

The discussion will be moderated by Shashi Jain.
