Members of our team are located in Australia and Canada and are available as keynote speakers for conferences/events. With more than 800 UAV’S now commercially available how do you know the best aircraft for your needs? Or, are you confused about the often misleading information available on the internet about UAV’s?
“I met Peter (Blake) when he came to Saskatchewan, Canada on a tour to learn what we in the RCMP were doing with UAV’s (Unmanned Aerial Vehicles) in policing. I came to respect his knowledge and understanding of the use of UAV’s and their potential uses in policing. Peter also gave us a great deal of information that he has learned and even made us look at a few uses of the UAV’s not just in policing, but other ways they can be used to serve the public.
Peter is well respected not only by his own police department, but also by those that he has interacted with around the world. Those of us in the RCMP that use UAV’s, have high regard and respect for Peter. We know that he can always be counted on to provide valuable insight and knowledge.”Corporal Doug Green
