Detecting Opportunity for drones in The Energy Industry

Microdrones Distributor Allterra attended the 2018 Energy Drone Coalition Summit this month in Houston, Texas. 

Dedicated to launching, growing and scaling unmanned systems operations in energy companies worldwide, this event brought together leaders from the unmanned technology and energy industries. With an exclusive focus on the business and technology of unmanned aerial, ground/surface & subsea systems for energy applications, it was a great showcase for Microdrones and the mdTector1000CH4 system.

Joining Allterra was Microdrones business development manager, Omar Omar. He explained, "I've never seen so many drones in one energy industry event, with such serious interest, especially in pipelines and transportation networks. I had the opportunity to meet several leaders from the oil and gas industry, and they are very interested in our systems."
