Raptor International provides training and business support to Unmanned Aircraft Systems users. UAS or drones are used in a wide range of industries to gather data from the sky for a wide range of industries such as renewable energy, cell phone infrastructure, power grids, agriculture, construction and insurance.
Drones can capture high-resolution photographs and video as well as carrying a range of special payloads such as infrared or multispectrum cameras.
In order to be successful in this vibrant industry, UAS pilots need to be able to deliver high-quality data in the format industry needs.
They must also be familiar with the safety protocols necessary for the individual worksites where they will operate their aircraft. Many of these have special hazards such as powerful radio wave transmitters or high voltage sources.
