Presidential Inauguration Leadership Summit 2017 Invitational

FlyCam UAV has been invited to participate in the Presidential Inauguration Leadership Summit 2017 as a member of the Inaugural Career Fair. The Presidential Inauguration Leadership Summit is designed to provide our next generation of leaders, 6th grade through college attendees, with vital information for building a better and brighter future.

Presidential Inauguration

Joining FlyCAM UAV will be US Nuclear Corp. In 2016 FlyCam UAV, a UAV (drone) manufacturer, partnered with US Nuclear Corp, a global leader in radiation and chemical detection. The two companies have married their two technologies with the NEO an all-weather UAV octocopter capable of carrying a number of radiation and chemical detection sensors. With the advent of merging FlyCam UAV’s NEO and US Nuclear Corp sensor technology aerial radiation and chemical detection is now a reality. Having these UAV mounted sensors quickly and efficiently surveying large areas for contamination eliminates risk to human life.

Using a UAV equipped with radiation and chemical sensors provides a proactive tool not previously available. Prior to this new technology personnel had to be equipped with some type of personal protective clothing or haz mat suits and hand held Geiger counters and walk or drive into hazardous situations. With the advent of this unique merged technology, UAVs equipped with radiation and chemical sensors, personnel can now safely pilot a UAV into a contaminated area and quickly get real time data downloaded to a laptop. That data is displayed as a full Gamma spectrum which provides radioactive isotope identification with GPS mapping.

WANTED:
CBRN (Chemical, Biological, Radiological, Nuclear) Water Monitors

A recent survey by Environmental Protection Agency personnel found that Technical Associates is currently the sole source, worldwide, to provide comprehensive instrumentation for real time monitoring of radionuclides, chemicals, and biological contaminants in drinking water and wastewater. Information on the complete CBRN Chemical Biological and Radiation Detection System UniTect can be found at: http://www.tech-associates.com/dept/sales/product-info/TABrochure.pdf

CBRN Water MonitorsTechnical Associates is proud to announce the NextGen-SSS – http://www.tech-associates.com/dept/sales/product-info/nexgen-sss.pdf.

This model replaces model SSS-33-5FT. The heightened sensitivity of this model meets and exceeds the 2009 U.S. DHS (Department of Homeland Security) Protective Action Guidelines (PAGs) for Gamma, Alpha, and Beta levels of radiation http://www.fema.gov/good_guidance/download/10260).

Alarms and data records are an integral part of both instruments. The UniTect instrumentation and the NextGen-SSS are easily integrated into the existing infrastructure of water utilities and wastewater treatment plants.

This state-of-the-art instrumentation makes the detection of alpha and beta radionuclides in water at the required levels of detection possible for the first time. The NextGen-SSS was designed with industry input and manufactured with EPA’s 2009 PAG levels specifically in mind.

A Tritium Detector is optional for the Model NexGen-SSS and measures the 2009 PAG Tritium levels.

Like the internet and GPS before them, drones are evolving beyond their military origin to become powerful business tools. They've already made the leap to the consumer market, and now they're being put to work in commercial and civil government applications from firefighting to farming. That's creating a market opportunity that's too large to ignore.

Like the internet and GPS before them, drones are evolving beyond their military origin to become powerful business tools. They've already made the leap to the consumer market, and now they're being put to work in commercial and civil government applications from firefighting to farming. That's creating a market opportunity that's too large to ignore.

Drones got their tart as safer, cheaper and often more capable alternatives to manned military aircraft. Defense will remain the largest market for the foreseeable future as global competition heats up and technology continues to improve.
