AAIS Chief Executive delivered the Welcome Address at the Opening Ceremony and launched the event alongside Drones Asia Co-founder Mr Rupert Owen and gold sponsor Inmarsat, represented by Ms Lee Siu Min.

Meetings held at our booth

We were pleased to receive a stream of visitors at our booth and held good meetings with the Malaysian and Indonesian civil aviation authorities, MRANTI, Invest Northern Ireland, Invest Selangor and industry delegates.

Panel on the use of drones in construction and management of key assets

The UAV Innovation Theatre at Drones Asia drew speakers from major regional organisations such as Petronas, Electricity Generating Authority of Thailand and Sime Darby Plantations, besides many other excellent speakers from across the region and Singapore.

UAS Community networking at Inmarsat booth

The first day of the show was capped with a joint networking event between the UAS Community and Inmarsat. This was held in conjunction with the launch of its Velaris service in Singapore. We congratulate our members, Inmarsat and Heron AirBridge, on their announcement of a new partnership. This will enable Heron AirBridge and Inmarsat to combine their capabilities and showcase how satellite-based technology can support the safe integration of unmanned aircraft into Singapore’s commercial airspace.

We thank Montgomery Asia and AAIS member Inmarsat for their partnership.
