With a comprehensive three-day FREE to attend industry conference program, ROTORTECH 2020 is the region’s premier helicopter and unmanned flight systems showcase and forum, featuring more than 100 participating companies and key speakers from industry and government.

Join Australia’s helicopter and unmanned aerial flight communities including the Australian Helicopter Industry Association (AHIA), Australian Association for Unmanned Systems (AAUS) and the Aviation Maintenance Repair and Overhaul Business Association (AMROBA) at the industry’s own signature event.

Join the FREE conference program and engage with:

  • Keynote address from the Hon. Michael McCormack MP, Deputy Prime Minister of Australia, Federal Minister for Infrastructure, Transport and Regional Development
  • Aerial firefighting: lessons learned and the way ahead
  • Heli-Mustering: beefing up the helicopter industry
  • Rotary wing tourism: the bird’s eye view
  • Financial forum: question the experts
  • Remotely Piloted Aircraft Systems (RPAS) in fire and emergency management, agriculture, infrastructure inspection and aerial survey
  • Helicopter technical workshops from Airbus, Bell, Boeing and Robinson
  • The future rotary wing regulatory landscape

SSSI Webinar - Mobile laser scanning: how it works and what you can do with it @ Online

Are you a young surveyor and always wondered what the digital frontier of the profession looked like? Are you mid career but developed foundation skills but have not yet ventured into the digital data part of the discipline? Are you a seasoned professional who loves to see what amazing things you can do with the tools and technologies of the 21st century?

If you answered yes to any of those questions then this is a webinar you won’t want to miss!

Michael Finlay is a Geospatial Engineer who specialises in 3D laser scanning and point cloud technologies. He is an early career professional who has been working at Jacobs for 8 years and is passionate about all things 3D laser scanning, especially mobile laser scanning (MLS). Michael is a trail blazer in developing the digital data team and discipline at Jacobs as not only a real value add, efficiency but product and service enricher for the surveying team. He gets involved with the planning, scanning, processing, adjusting, classifying, extracting, automation, analysis, visualisation and supports the interfaces of surveying and digital engineering and GIS environments for stakeholders from a broad variety of disciplines.

Check out Michael’s profile to see some of the amazing projects he has been involved in and how he champions this modern digital space for surveying and geospatial engineers.

Subsurface Utilities and Digital Twins @ Online webinar
May 13 @ 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm
Subsurface Utilities and Digital Twins @ Online webinar

The presenters for this topical webinar will be Dr Craig Roberts, Senior Lecturer in Surveying/GPS/Geodesy at UNSW and Wayne Patterson Director, Spatial Operations at the NSW Department of Customer Service.

Roberts will give a short update on the revision of the Australian Standard, AS_5488 Classification of subsurface utility information in the context of datum modernisation, low-cost multi-GNSS and recent advances in positioning infrastructure in Australia.

Data storage, data distribution and security are identified as challenges suggesting a reimagined data governance will be needed. Could a spatial digital twin assist? What is a spatial digital twin? Is it a BIM? Where does it come from? What is an open data policy? Who can use it? Can I use it? Which datum? How accurate is the data?

Rather than just another PowerPoint webinar, Roberts will interview Patterson in a free-flowing format. Attendees will be invited to ask their own questions live in the chat as the conversation evolves.

This webinar is targeted at surveyors, geospatial users, students and the wider spatial community.
