DCE UAS (Drone Consulting & Education - Unmanned Aerial Systems) has been providing professional UAV services since 2013. Our expert pilots have thousands of hours in the air flying in all types of conditions. All of our pilots are completely licensed by the Federal Aviation Administration and insured. We travel and work nationwide. Below is list of some of the services we provide.

- Asset Inspection
- Orthomosaic Mapping
- 3D Modeling and Point Clouds
- Real Estate (Commercial & Residential)
- Advertising
- Virtual Reality (VR \/ 360 Video)
- Commercial Video Production

In addition to commercial drone services DCE UAS is a leader in the education space with our STEAM Drones products.We provide everything you need (curriculum, drones, support, etc.) to quickly launch a STEAM drone program. Drones are not only a fun & engaging tool, but the applications in the classroom are proving to be extensive and inclusive. Our curriculum can be applied with varying age ranges and is extremely conducive to students with diverse learning styles by helping them learn math, science & logic through fun and practical application.

Students will start with learning the basics of block style coding. Students will test and execute their code on small indoor friendly drones that will fly autonomously in the classroom. Once students master the basics, they will move on to more a advanced programming language known as Python. A large majority of web applications and companies rely on Python such as Google, YouTube, New York Stock Exchange, and even NASA. In addition, with our new JavaScript course, students will dive into the world of flow-based programming with Node-RED for drones. Node-RED is a powerful visual editor for developing custom software for IoT, the Internet of Things. Since the drones can be programmed using UDP this makes Node-RED a logical choice for building advanced drone missions.

Our bundle includes drones, all the necessary accessories (batteries, cases, chargers, spare parts), access to our curriculum platform, and walk-through training videos that accompany each lesson. In addition to the curriculum, hardware, and software we also offer professional development services both on-site and virtual through our Microsoft global training partners. Our one on one sessions are there to assist educators, walk through curriculum, and build user confidence. With the use of brain-based learning and coaching models we create positive outcomes across education and professional development communities, where technology is used as a tool for supporting more productive and engaging STEAM learning experiences.

I have just received exceptional content from a project completed by Dave for a very 'last minute' plea. Not only did he obtain what we needed, but there were so many other amazing treats included in the filming that has given our company a chocolate box of choice to use in our promotional materials. Based on a showreel to give him an idea of how we produce our aerial footage, Dave captured everything I'd shared with him from other drone projects. Going above and beyond what I asked for from no more than message exchanges, this guy is quite simply AMAZING and skilled. Nothing was rushed, every angle was included, even moments that he couldn't have planned were an additional blessing. I would not hesitate in recruiting Dave in future projects, in fact, I'm hopeful we will need him again soon to have the opportunity to work together. Sincere thanks and gratitude to you Dave, I wish you much ongoing success - you thoroughly deserve it!

We were looking for a drone operator to shoot a scene for our commercial and Dave delivered some beautiful footage. He was a pleasure to work with, a true professional, and even showed great flexibility given our ever changing schedule and the inclement weather.

Dave is amazing. He made sure that my real estate photos were exactly what I had envisioned. His equipment is impressive and his knowledge of technology is even more impressive. He is totally professional, affordable, available, patient and easy to communicate with. I highly recommend DCE IT and will certainly be using them again.

Dave was absolutely phenomenal. I'm not understating that. I ran into a situation where I needed to hire a drone operator to cover a wedding. The couple had a ton of elements to their wedding. In addition to the standard venue/landscape footage.. they were having the groom flown in by a helicopter to land at the venue, and then having him dance his way to the ceremony. There were plenty of wires and trees at the venue. In addition to all of those variables - the weather forecast was looking troubling all weekend, and on top of that, I'm very hesitant about who I want to work with. I want top notch people who deliver on their promises. Look no further than Dave and DCE IT. Dave was on top of communication - he talked personally to the helicopter pilot to get permission as well as determine the flight plan, he coordinated to find out the ETA and AGL of the helicopter, he maintained a safe distance from the helicopter, and he navigated successfully around the trees and power lines of the venue. In addition to all of that.. he got a ton of GREAT footage. Not just a ton of okay footage, it's all really, really spot on - tons of different angles for every pass he took. He really took his time up in the air and looked for different angles, perspectives, views.. he didn't just get one good pass, he got several great ones at each different spot so that I can cut it all together into a sequence. He took the vision I was looking for and executed perfectly. He came prepared, kept me posted through the day, and sent me a download link for the footage before I was even back in the office from the weekend. I can not recommend Dave and DCE IT enough. They are worth every penny if you want quality footage and great customer service.

dave did a nice job on my shoot - it was tricky given we were shooting on a river with lots of trees.

Dave is an excellent pilot. He's also very dedictated to his work. He drove through a snowstorm to get to our shoot. I recommend him 100% to anyone seeking aerial work.
