Keys to a Creating A Successful Public Safety Drone Program

  1. Buy-in of the value of sUAS Technology by Company Leader(s)
  2. Determine how UAVs will be integrated into your company’s daily missions
  3. Selection of appropriate sUAS platform based on needs assessment
  4. Careful selection of sUAS pilots
  • DSI has learned from experience that this is a critical step.  We have found  that some personnel express great initial interest in being a sUAS pilot, but are not willing to maintain the rigors of  training, study and adherence to complex FAA rules that accompany flying a sUAS 

5. Conduct regular, reality-based and recurrency flight training

6. Open and transparent reporting of UAS Missions to local community (i.e. Annual Report, regular press releases on successful UAS operations)

Choosing a UAS Training Company

  • Do they offer a complete, turnkey solution or are you going to piecemeal your UAS purchase and training needs from multiple vendors?
  • Can this company also assist you in determining the appropriate UAS platform based on your mission, needs and budget?
  • Can they assist you with ongoing maintenance and repair of your UAS? 
  • Do they understand the needs of your company
  • Any 18 yr. old can teach you how to fly a sUAS, but does he know anything about your business processes or procedures
  • Are they local?  
  • How does hiring someone from out of state or paying to send your personnel out of state for training help your agency and budget in the future?
  • Can they be on-site within an hour?
  • Are they responsive to your needs? Will they return phone calls after the big purchase?

Or will you never hear from them after they have received your money?

  • Will they bill you for every minute of their time when responding to inquiries?
  • Can they assist you with policy/procedures development?
  • Do they understand the complexities of U.S. Airspace and FAA Regulations?
  • Are they pilots?
  • Can they assist you with obtaining Certificates of Authorization (COA) from the FAA?
  • Can they provide more than basic FAA Part 107 training? Such as: 
  • Night Flying
  • Search and Rescue
  • Sources of sUAS Interference
  • Augmented Reality for UAS 
  • DJI Matrice 200 Series training
  • Thermography
