XPONENTIAL Highlights from CompTIA

CompTIA and the Association for Unmanned Vehicle Systems International (AUVSI) will jointly preview an upcoming research report on the commercial drone market.

The research presentation, followed by a panel discussion featuring representatives from the CompTIA Drone Advisory Council, is scheduled for 4:00 p.m. Tuesday, April 30, in the Solutions Theater, Booth #436, in the XPO Hall.

CompTIA will share its newly published " Drone Standards and Best Practices." This resource was created to help improve the relevance, quality and consistency of service delivery within the industry.
