SLANTRANGE is honored to join the all new San Diego Drone Coalition, led by our partners at Action Drone. We’ll be attending the first meeting on August 31, 2017 at San Diego City College.
Below is an introduction to the organization and the first meeting from Darryl Anunciado, CEO at Action Drone.
Working together for the drone industry
San Diego is blessed with the right weather, companies, and people to propel the drone industry into the growth we all have been anticipating. The drone industry will gain more from a group of drone companies that have the same interest in growing our market. My proposal is to create an Open Forum for all San Diego drone companies to engage with each other, at least once a month. These forums can be held at each others’ offices or we can meet publicly. There are no obligations to attend or any fees and entirely voluntary to all the participants. The only requirement I recommend made mandatory is that all attendees must have the ability to make final decisions for their company. This will make it easy for each of us to collaborate as fast as possible.
Who should participate?
Action Drone Inc. is a drone company that manufactures drones and creates service programs for industrial companies. There are many different aspects in the drone industry that we can’t cover. This goes for many other drone companies. It would be very beneficial if other aspects of the drone industry can join this Coalition. This will include other manufacturers, designers, service providers, software developers, sensor manufacturers, ground station systems, support systems and all other markets supporting the drone industry.
What are the benefits?
The global market is starting to adopt the benefits of integrating drone technology into their businesses. There is no drone company out there with a complete solution to what the global market needs. This Coalition’s goal is to propel San Diego as the ‘Drone Capital of the World’ and open up more opportunities that would not have been available if we were to act alone.
How do we get started?
I would like to make this as simple as possible – this does not mean it won’t get more organized later down the line. I have spoken with several companies who would really like this group to get started. This includes Planck Aerosystems, SDG&E, Skylift, Go Professional Cases, and much more. They have agreed that we need to keep it simple as a quick gathering.
This initial meeting will be used to create goals as a group. This first meeting will give us the ability to discuss what we all want from this coalition. We will go over some of our plans and ideas on what we can do together. This is also an opportunity for you to voice out your opinion on how this group can help you and your company.
