Southern Company is a highly innovative organization that remains on the cutting edge of Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS) technology and integration within the energy sector.


Currently there are more than 35 remote pilots and 50 UAS being deployed across the system in support of security, communications, mapping, storm response, power generation, transmission, and distribution.  As UAS technology continues to evolve our use cases and benefits continue to grow. 


If you are interested in this technology and would like to learn more, please join us June 13-14 for the first Southern Company UAS Conference hosted by System Air at the Auburn Marriott Opelika Hotel in Opelika, AL.


The conference will focus on the future of Southern Company’s UAS Program and highlight the employment and applications of the technology across the company. In addition, there will be specialized training for current and upcoming remote pilots provided at no cost to the business unit.
