Northeast UAS Airspace Integration Research (NUAIR) has taken a leadership position in helping agencies and companies across the state adopt drone technology. Now, public safety drone organization DRONERESPONDERS and NUAIR have strengthened their partnership to assist agencies in New York state to integrate drone technology, using the significant resources of both parties to advance and expand drone operations in the public safety sector.
“The relationship between NUAIR and DRONERESPONDERS provides a new collaborative opportunity to further the advancement of public safety drones, payloads, UTM/AAM, and Counter UAS technologies,” Charles Werner, Director and Founder of DRONERESPONDERS tells DRONELIFE.
“NUAIR provides organizations the tools and knowledge to integrate and conduct advanced drone operations while DRONERESPONDERS focuses on aerial first responders and emergency managers, helping them learn, train and fly in emergency situations,” says a NUAIR press release. “Their combined efforts will help move New York State into a new age of technological advancement and economic efficiency.”
While drone technology has major advantages for public safety agencies and communities, getting started presents a challenge. Adequate training on drone operations and regulations must be layered with the specific requirements for police and fire departments. That’s where DRONERESPONDERS has stepped in: providing an extensive online drone resource center with training aids, videos, regulation updates, and more to their 3,800 members. In New York, NUAIR is also stepping up: helping more than 25 state, county and local agencies implement their drone programs so far. “In these uncertain times, when resources are sparse, NUAIR and DRONERESPONDERS are fortifying their partnership to fast-track state agency drone adoption to ease financial burdens and free-up state resources.”
“We have helped multiple public safety organizations implement their drone programs, providing us with unique insight into their specific needs,” said Ken Stewart, chief executive officer of NUAIR. “Our partnership with DRONERESPONDERS will lead to more public safety and state agency drone programs being implemented faster, leading to significant cost savings to the state and more efficient services to its residents.”
“NUAIR is the perfect partner for organizations looking to explore and test new drone technologies that can be integrated into public safety and state agency operations,” said chief Charles Werner (ret.), director and founder of DRONERESPONDERS Public Safety Alliance. “Organizations quickly see enhanced safety and operational effectiveness, real time situational awareness, and other efficiencies after integrating drones into their daily operations.”
