Northeast UAS Airspace Integration Research (NUAIR) has taken a leadership role in helping agencies and corporations across the state adopt drone technology. Now the drone organization DRONERESPONDERS and NUAIR have strengthened their partnership to support agencies in the state of New York with the integration of drone technology. The considerable resources of both parties are used to advance and expand drone operations in the area of public safety.
“The relationship between NUAIR and DRONERESPONDERS offers a new way of working together to drive the advancement of drones, payloads, UTM / AAM and Counter-UAS technologies for public safety,” Charles Werner, director and founder of DRONERESPONDERS told DRONELIFE .
“NUAIR provides companies with the tools and knowledge to integrate and conduct advanced drone operations, while DRONERESPONDERS focuses on first responders and emergency managers from the air, helping them learn, train and fly in emergency situations,” said a press release by NUAIR. “Your combined efforts will help usher New York State into a new age of technological advancement and economic efficiency.”
While drone technology has great benefits for government agencies and public safety communities, getting started is challenging. Appropriate training on drone operations and regulations must be linked to the specific requirements for police and fire services. This is where DRONERESPONDERS has moved in: providing an extensive online drone resource center with training aids, videos, updates to regulations and more for the 3,800 members. NUAIR is also stepping up its activities in New York: it supports more than 25 state, regional and local authorities in the implementation of their drone programs. “In these uncertain times when resources are scarce, NUAIR and DRONERESPONDERS are strengthening their partnership to accelerate the adoption of drones by government agencies and reduce financial burdens and free up government resources.”
“We have helped several public safety organizations implement their drone programs and given us unique insight into their specific needs,” said Ken Stewart, CEO of NUAIR. “Our partnership with DRONERESPONDERS will result in more drone programs for public safety and government agencies being implemented faster, resulting in significant cost savings for the state and more efficient services for its residents.”
“NUAIR is the perfect partner for organizations that want to research and test new drone technologies that can be integrated into the operation of public safety and state authorities,” said boss Charles Werner (ret.), Director and founder of DRONERESPONDERS Public Safety Alliance. “After integrating drones into their daily operations, companies quickly see an improvement in safety and operational effectiveness, real-time situational awareness and other efficiency benefits.”
NUAIR and DRONERESPONDERS are actively seeking organizations that are looking for safe and cost effective solutions to increase operational efficiency. Contact NUAIR through their website (https://nuair.org/contact) to learn more about how drones can make a positive difference to your business.
