WWD Podcast Episode #19 – Will Brown at Strategic NRC

Published Oct 8, 2018

Our guest is Will Brown, who is UAV Technician at Strategic Natural Resource Consultants!  For this podcast episode, I decided that it was time to bring in a fellow colleague to discuss commercial unmanned aircraft and some of the work that I’m also involved in at Strategic.  I have worked with Will for the last several months at Strategic (he recently joined our staff) and he has been a great addition to Strategic’s UAV program. 

Will and I just finished a busy summer of UAV fire scanning, and have completed a variety of UAV surveys together as well.  Will brings his aviation knowledge and a diverse professional background to our program, including many years living up north in the Yukon territory. 

Some of the topics covered in this podcast episode:

  • Wildfire hotspot mapping with drones
  • Custom vs. out-of-the-box solutions
  • Evolution of commercial UAV work
  • Multirotor and fixed wing platform strengths
  • Beyond Visual Line of Sight (BVLOS) advantages
