PDXDrones Inaugural Meeting
Portland State University Fourth Avenue Building (FAB)

Do you like drones (aka UAVs)? Do you fly, build, drive or program something that could be considered a drone? Then join this group of enthusiasts and let's get together and share experiences, success stories, crashes and hacking projects we're all working on!

We have a broad definition of a drone - its basically a device that is either remotely controlled or completely autonomous. It can fly, drive or swim. It can carry things or take pictures and videos. You can control it by line of site, via video link or by programming in its route ahead of time.

PDXDrones - Developing for Drones
Lucky Labrador Brew Pub

The weather in Portland this time of year is fairly, let's say, unreliable. So December's event will focus on Drone Development, in other words the stuff that makes these things fly.

Are you working on code or components that will let your Drone fly farther, faster, longer, or take on new missions and capabilities? This month's meeting will be dedicated to hearing and sharing our development projects, as well as those others around the country and the world are working on.

This month's event will happen December 12, at 6pm. Location Lucky Labrador Brew Pub. Please RSVP on Plancast if you'll be able to make it! (It's Wednesday because of some Holiday party conflicts on Thursday)

Galois Tech Talk: Chris Anderson on Using Drones in Agriculture
Galois, Inc

Small unmanned aircraft---more often called drones---are set to make a big impact on agriculture. You already know about military drones operating overseas, and perhaps you've even seen recreational drones starring in youtube videos, but as the FAA begins permitting commercial use of unmanned aircraft in 2015, you'll see drones replacing all sorts of roles that used to require a manned aircraft, and taking on new roles made possible by their low cost, versatility, and safety.

Chris Anderson will speak about the upcoming role of drones in agriculture, a field Chris says "is a big data problem without the big data." Chris will describe how farmers can will drones to curb plant disease, conserve water, and reduce pesticide and fertilizer use. He'll discuss the challenges ahead to integrate air vehicle systems with sensors, specialized cameras, and data processing.

Drones, Big Data, and the Next Agricultural Revolution - Science Pub Portland
Hollywood Theater (Portland)

This event is actually on the 4th of August! I double checked with the Hollywood Theater!

Drones, Big Data, and the Next Agricultural Revolution

Ryan M. Jenson, MS, mechanical engineer, CEO & Co-Founder, HoneyComb Corporation

Aerial robotics and agriculture aren’t usually associated with one another, at least not yet. However, agriculture is projected to become the largest adopter of drone technology−surpassing all other use cases. To understand the transformation from military to the farm you need to understand the technology, its disruptive nature, and the intricacies of precision agriculture. In this talk Ryan Jenson will discuss drone-based applications, why they’re a game changer, and how drones will become a ubiquitous tool on the farm and in everyday life.

Ryan is CEO & co-founder of HoneyComb Corporation which specializes in the development and application of drone technology and data services for precision agriculture. He has led HoneyComb to the forefront of the emerging space and is widely considered to be an expert in the technology, capabilities, and its global impact on agriculture. Over the past decade Ryan has played a key strategic and technology role across a range of projects with the USDA, Department of Energy, National Science Foundation, Department of Defense, British Royal Navy, NASA and Fortune 500 companies. His experience encompasses agriculture, big data, remote sensing, aerospace systems, and software to name a few. Ryan holds a master’s degree in mechanical engineering; along with a bachelor’s degree and minor in electrical engineering that he received at age 19. Today his name appears on over 30 publications & presentations and he routinely advises on business strategy, disruptive technology, and leadership.

Science Pub Portland – Hollywood Theatre is a monthly event open to all ages. No RSVP or scientific background required. Just bring your curiosity, sense of humor, and appetite for food, drinks, and knowledge! $5.00 suggested cover charge. Tell your friends. We hope to see you there!

TiE Panel event: The Future Takes Flight - Drones
TiE Pearl Incubator

Join us for a fun and educational event on the theme of Aerial Robotics, Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS) or Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV), otherwise know as drones.

Drones came into the public eye in recent years through the news about their military uses, but they are gaining some serious momentum in civil applications as well. Some regard this as a sweeping technical revolution, with far-reaching consequences and possibilities. Come find out what Oregon companies are doing in this new and exciting industry vertical!

Weather permitting, we're planning for a demonstration session of some drones outside the venue.

After the demo, we will have a panel discussion about the state of the industry, and where our panelists see things going. There will be plenty of opportunity for networking and Q&A!

Panelists include:

  • Ryan Jenson - CEO/Founder of HoneyCombM
  • Jonathan Evans - CEO/Co-founder of SkyWard
  • Scott Edwards - founder of the @PDXDrones group and cofounder of Silicon Sky Meetup (and Director of Marketing and Customer Acquisition at Simple Finance by day)
  • Wendie Kellington - Attorney specializing in regulated industries, such as unmanned flight and use of public airspace

The discussion will be moderated by Shashi Jain.

TiE Members: $10 (pre-registration, door $15) Non-members: $20 (pre-registration, door $25)
