Following on from the success of our first UAVs in Resources Industry Conference this June, Informa is delighted to announce a broader scope UAVs event: UAVs in Resources, Utilities and Engineering to take place on the 13-14 October 2014 at the Stamford Plaza, Brisbane.The use of UAVs in the mining, oil/gas industries and utilities sectors is increasing as new applications are discovered and developed. Enormous potential exists to roll out this technology across mine sites, resource projects, utilities and engineering projects all over Australia.UAVs are a fraction of the cost of piloted aircraft with enormous safety benefits.Just some of the potential for UAV use in the resource and utilities industries include (and will be addressed at the conference):Inspection of fixed plant and to get a better analysis of potential shutdown for repairInspection of high voltage powerlines and transmission towersCorrosion inspections and aerial inspection at heightStockpile volume modellingAerial surveying and mapping of mine sitesMonitor for any subsidence above or adjacent to underground minesThermal monitoring of coal stockpilesPit mapping for highwalls, pit walls and development facesSurveying and monitoring offshore oil/gas infrastructureNew uses for aerial real time truck management, site and remote infrastructure monitoring, and machinery trackingRemove risk and increase safety for site personnelMonitor the performance of mine tailings facilitiesAnd much more.

Price: 2 Day Conference (13-14 October 2014): $ 2414.50 AUD
