Join us for the Drone Pathfinder Catalyst Programme Community Webinar on 21st September

The Government’s Pathfinder Catalyst Programme is part of a wider programme of work across the UK’s public and private sectors, aimed at enabling integration of drones into UK airspace.

The programme aims to rapidly drive progress in drone technology and regulation over the next ten years, enabling industry and the public sector to fully exploit the market in areas such as geo-mapping, infrastructure inspections, surveying and logistics to both commercial and public-sector industries.

These community events provide an opportunity for the UAV community to share experiences and form connections. They include updates and discussions from across the community, as well as from the Pathfinder Steering Group

More information is available from the Pathfinder website.
