WASHINGTON DC – JMA Solutions, LLC, a Federal Government contractor of fourteen (14) years providing relevant unmanned aircraft systems (UAS) professional services such as safety management systems, safety risk management and UAS policy, today announced its partnership with the DRONERESPONDERS Public Safety Alliance.
Led by Chief Charles Werner (ret.), DRONERESPONDERS is a non-profit program created to unite aerial first responders, emergency managers, and search and rescue specialists under a unified organization to help learn, train, and test with one another. DRONERESPONDERS has the ultimate objective of maximizing drone operations for public safety.
“We’re very appreciative of the efforts of JMA Solutions to help advance the mission of DRONERESPONDERS,” said Werner. “With this partnership we’re able to reach more airspace decision makers and enable more sharing of knowledge, standardizing certifications, creating a global directory of emergency UAS assets and creating more professional UAS operations.”
This exciting partnership takes advantages of JMA Solution’s vast experience working within the FAA as well as its expertise with national air space regulations and policies and combines it with DRONRESPONDERS’ in-depth expertise in public safety UAS operations.
“Public Safety responders do so much for our communities and we’re proud to support the efforts of an organization such as DRONERESPONDERS” said JMA Solutions CEO and President, Jan Adams. “JMA believes in their mission and looks forward to actively participating to achieve their goals.”
The purpose of this partnership will be to help DRONERESPONDERS reach and collaborate more effectively with the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and other government agencies which have a hand in UAS rulemaking. As a member of DRONERESPONDERS, Tony Tisdall, VP of Global Affairs and Aviation Solutions, will lead efforts to reach key national air space decision makers.
“There are so many complex issues surrounding drone operations and many more are added during emergency operations,” said Tisdall. “We look forward to working with DRONERESPONDERS to help navigate some of these complex issues.”
Emerging technologies like UAS will reshape the way the aviation community will operate in the very near future. The rapidly expanding UAS use case portfolio requires a collaborative, measured effort to integrate manned and unmanned flight into the National Airspace System. The increased level of safety and response efficiency provided by UAS operations for our public safety professionals makes expansion of UAS a top priority.
