Drones : Safety Risk Management for the Next Evolution of Flight (Hardcover) (Harrison G. Wolf)
About this item
Misinformation and fear have captured the discourse around drones in the United States and abroad, relegating the discussion and media into questions about privacy and danger. An honest approach to the industry of unmanned flying robotics is needed to promote the safe and full realization of their capabilities. Through a historical perspective of drone incidents, accidents, success stories and technological expansion, Drone Flight presents vital knowledge of this quickly developing industry.
As a nationally recognized subject matter expert, course developer for the University of Southern California Viterbi School of Engineering’s Aviation Safety & Security Program, and an Instructor within that program, Harrison Wolf has seen exactly what all operators need to help create a safe and successful experience with UAS. Meanwhile, as an entrepreneur and policy expert, Wolf understands the business case mentality and need for governments to maintain safe political and physical interactions at home and abroad. This book addresses these two, at-times competing, but ultimately cooperative viewpoints that are both necessary for the success of drones.
The rapid pace of drones’ development necessitates constant change to technological approaches, while the languid pace of regulation is just now speeding up. The near future will bring tremendous demand for information regarding operations, regulations, legislation and training. This book will be a required tool for any and all individuals looking to operate safely and successfully in the United States.
