Oregon State Workshop | Critical Infrastructure Reentry and Situational Awareness Project (CIRSAP) | 2019 Resilience Challenge Grant
As part of its Critical Infrastructure Reentry and Situational Awareness Project (CIRSAP), the CRDR held a workshop on September 4, 2019 in Salem, Oregon. Over 80 public and private sector stakeholders from Oregon and around the region participated in the workshop focused on Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS), or drones. The workshop sought to highlight the current state of UAS usage within the State of Oregon and identify opportunities to collaborate more effectively between the public and private sector on drone usage and utilizing drones for situational awareness. The workshop brought together attendees and speakers from drone companies, industry associations and organizations, first responders, law enforcement, state and federal agencies, municipalities, emergency managers, and stakeholders from both the public and private sector.
The workshop was funded by a grant from the Department of Homeland Security’s (DHS) National Infrastructure Protection Plan (NIPP) Challenge Grant program. Oregon is one of four states that participated in the CRDR's Resilience Challenge Grant project. Learn more about the CRDR's Resilience Challenge Grant project here.
