Meet Your Instructor

Dan Hubert is a 25-year veteran of the drone and geospatial intelligence industry. . He started as a tactical air imagery analyst managing a theater-level geo-intelligence center. As a Naval Aviation TOP GUN Tactical Instructor, he authored and taught hundreds of tactical procedures for the latest sensors, aircraft, and emerging military drones. He took command of several special forces UAV combat units and drafted operational innovations in co-use airspace and multi-sensor intelligence products. As General Atomics Program Manager, Dan oversaw MQ-9 Reaper unique payload integration and hyperspectral, lidar, ISAR sensor exploitation training development. Today Dan, as the assistant Director of UAS research and training for the American Society of Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing (ASPRS), recognizes the commercial UAV mapping industry is being taught by sensor manufacturers who are making wild performance and accuracy claims. Dan wants to lead the development of standardized ASPRS UAV procedures and training that can be shown by ASPRS representatives to increase ASPRS certifications as the standard for sUAS mapping products.
