The Geo-Information Society of South Africa held a general meeting on Friday 12 June 2015. The meeting was held at the Department of Environmental Affairs in Pretoria. Amongst the attendees and speakers were mining and agricultural industry players and experts in Aerial photography. RocketMine were invited to speak about the possible applications of Remotely piloted aircraft systems (RPAS) in the South African market since as of 1 July 2015, legislation will be implemented for the commercial use of RPAS.
Chris Clark, RocketMine division head, held a presentation on the environments that RocketMine have mapped, so far.
It was a well- received presentation that invited many questions from the audience and a particular interest from government and non-government bodies. The overwhelming reception of RocketMine demonstrated how there is a need for RocketMine services and how the industries have a growing interest of how technology can help with operations.
While the country and RocketMine wait for the implementation of laws around the use of drones, RocketMine will continue to explore newer means of speeding operational decisions and cutting costs through UAV technology.
