XPONENTIAL - UAS Magazine Announces UAS Energy In Sight Summit Co-Located at AUVSI’s 2016 Xponential in New Orleans

Produced by UAS Magazine, this one-day event will highlight the connection between the energy industry and UAS technology or services

New Orleans, LA - (April 6, 2016) - UAS Magazine has announced that several major speaker presentations have been added to the agenda for the UAS Energy In Sight Summit, a one-day event co-located at the world's largest drone event. Produced by UAS Magazine, the UAS Energy In Sight Summit, at AUVSI's Xponential, May 2-5, at the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center in New Orleans, will provide an unprecedented look at the need and opportunity for the unmanned aircraft systems industry to serve energy producers and energy infrastructure entities with aerial imagery, data and better options to perform dull, dangerous, dirty or difficult services.

"The proliferation of UAVs into the energy sector is becoming readily apparent and the presentations we've selected will reveal valuable perspective showing how UAS and energy entities are connecting today," says Luke Geiver, editor of UAS Magazine. "Our final agenda will include presentations on oil, gas, wind, pipeline, rail, solar, electricity and storage."

This week, several presentations have been added to the agenda. A UAS service provider founded by aviation experts and oil and gas veterans will reveal the challenges of serving oil and gas clients and how the San Antonio-based firm has found success to date. A unique collaboration consisting of a wind blade manufacturing R&D team, a data analytics and software developer and a UAS flight operations team will share insight on their quest—including their early success—to change the wind energy industry. And a project engineer responsible for spearheading a historic beyond visual line of sight operation last year will share what his team learned about using UAS to monitor railways.

"These presentations—and those to be announced soon—offer incredible storylines that have mostly gone untold in the greater UAS world," added Geiver.

Selected presenters will reveal the market opportunities for UAS entities looking to work with energy producers from Texas to Maine to California in the oil and gas, wind, solar or renewables space. Analysis and overviews of the size of each energy market and its potential need for UAS will be revealed, along with case studies and examples of how UAVs have already been implemented into the energy sector.

Attendees of the UAS Energy In Sight Summit also receive a complimentary one-day pass to the Xponential expo hall and can network with all of the exhibitors on the tradeshow floor.

SCHUNK's New Safety Gripping System EGN

SCHUNK's New Safety Gripping System EGN

With the SLS, SOS, and STO functionalities, the SCHUNK EGN gripping system certified in accordance with DIN EN ISO 13849 enables safe human/machine collaboration. If the production process is interrupted by an emergency shut-off, the SCHUNK EGN goes into either a safely limited speed mode or a safe stop mode depending on the activated protection zone. In contrast to other solutions available on the market, the SCHUNK safety gripping system is continuously powered even in the safe operating stop so that the gripped parts are reliably held even without mechanical maintenance of gripping force. As soon as the protection zone is released, the gripper immediately switches back to the regular operating mode without the system having to be restarted.
