Watch as Canadian Advanced Technology Alliance's  (CATAAlliance) Chief Business Officer, Kevin Wennekes, interviews Staff Sergeant David Domoney of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) in a discussion offering an advance glimpse of his planned remarks for the upcoming National Public Safety and Emergency Management Operational Unmanned Air Systems Workshop.

Taking place from June 9-11, 2015, in Regina, the inaugural "Eye in the Sky" Unmanned Air Systems (UAS) workshop will feature operationally focused workshops designed to identify gaps in policy, training and operations and to develop action plans to fill those gaps, as well as a Technology Demo Day. S/Sgt Downey will be a featured speaker at the workshops, providing a detailed overview of the RCMP's UAS strategy as well as taking an active role in helping to shape the workshop's outcomes.

In his TechNOW conversation, David describes how the force has grown from a single UAV in 2010 to over 90 units today and details the four operational purposes for which the RCMP deploy unmanned aerial vehicles. David also shares hints at what the RCMP will be showcasing on the Tech Demo Day being planned for the UAS Workshop and describes how the RCMP are globally recognized leaders in the development and implementation of UAS strategies.
