American Aerospace CEO David Yoel Discusses Next-Generation Airborne Patrol at the American Petroleu

New Airborne Sensor Systems Are More Intelligent, More Alert, More Cost- Effective


GALVESTON, TX and CONSHOHOCKEN, PA – With renewed interest in the safety and security of the nation’s oil and gas pipelines and other energy, transportation and telecommunications infrastructure, regular and reliable safety inspection and monitoring operations have never been more important.

“Advanced airborne enterprise systems are delivering a new generation of near real- time inspection, patrol, mapping and high-speed wireless services, that save time, money and lives,” said David Yoel, founder and CEO of American Aerospace Technologies Inc., a pioneer in the growing field of airborne enterprise systems. “At the API summit, we look forward to insightful and productive discussions on how a new generation of sensors and analytics aboard manned aircraft, unmanned aircraft and small electric drones can make our national infrastructure safer in the future.”

Yoel, a physicist, entrepreneur, pilot, airspace expert and leader in the field of unmanned aircraft systems, will serve as a co-moderator and panelist at the American Petroleum Institute’s 7th Biennial Inspection Summit, which will be held this week in Galveston, TX. Discussions will focus on new airborne systems technologies that are being enabled by new federal airspace regulations

On Tuesday, Jan. 31, from 3:30-5 PM, Yoel, a leader in the field of airborne enterprise systems, will appear on the summit panel “Unmanned Aircraft Systems” with moderator John O’Brien of Chevron, and fellow panelists Dyan Gibbens of Trumbull Unmanned, Al Brunner of the FAA, and Suzanne Lemieux of API. He also will serve as co-moderator of two presentations: “Next-Gen Aerial Patrol: Advanced Remote Sensing and Geospatial Big Data Automation for Pipeline Integrity” with San Gunawardana of Enview Inc., and “Study of Gas Pipeline Leak Detection from Aerial Platforms” with Niloy Choudhury of GE Global Research.
