Our “Learn the Market” webinar series continues on Tuesday, November 7th at 2pm eastern with a session on how to buy drones. We are fortunate to be joined by a great panel of public sector experts that we’ll introduce tomorrow. And we are particularly excited about this session because the topic is of considerable relevance right now.
For one thing, drones have been deployed with great benefit to assist in recovery operations in the wake of recent natural disasters. From surveying property damage to reseeding federal lands ravaged by wildfires to inspecting infrastructure, drones can do things that their human counterparts either can’t do, won’t do, or can do but less efficiently.
And we are aware of a nationwide solicitation for drone operators that’s about to hit the street – if you’re a buyer or a vendor, you’ll want to attend just to learn more about this.
But our primary question for November 7th is how can procurement professionals and their program office counterparts begin to think about buying drones. Should the focus be on buying the hardware, or instead on contracting for the outcomes (e.g., Drones-as-a-Service)?
It’s a bit of a leading question, and I already know how I’d answer the question, but I’m very curious to hear from our audience. Has anyone had experience buying into the drone marketplace? Our expert panel has. Share your thoughts and questions here, and make sure to register for How to Buy Drones on the 7th!
