How a Ban on Foreign Drones Would Cripple the Industry

 

On this episode of Drones in America, host Grant Guillot was joined by Brenden Schulman, Vice President of Policy and Legal Affairs at DJI.

DJI, headquartered in Shenzhen, China, is an industry leader, providing flying and stabilization systems and more than make image capture via drone simpler and more effective.

Schulman and Guillot dove into new use cases for drones created by the COVID-19 pandemic, the shifting landscape of the public’s perception of drones, and more, though a majority of the duo’s discussion centered around a key topic – what role do foreign-made drones play in the American drone industry?

It’s a key consideration, particularly in light of growing concerns about foreign powers, notably China, gaining access to sensitive American data.

Schulman and Guillot tackled how realistic and present the risk of such data exchange is, outlined mitigation strategies that can help prevent it, and posited that, should foreign drones ever actually be banned, the effects on the industry would be catastrophic.

Schulman and DJI will also be holding DJI AirWorks 2020 virtually from Aug. 25-28, with a keynote address scheduled addressing “Everyone Pays The Price: How Fear-Based Regulations Hurt The Drone Industry.”
