Interested in assisting Aerosight on a Discovery Channel series?

Good day everyone,


Today I was contacted by some producers who do a ton of work making programs for the Discovery Channel. They do the shows like military channel etc.


Today we discussed Aerosight's availability to assist in a new show that will follow the UAS operators tracking down lost people in a SAR type of mission. The show will be a series, paid, and in and outside the USA. The involved companies/persons will need their own equipment that is capable of live data feeds. We are not needing POST data retrieved ships like JUST MAPPING but UAS capable of live moving map, optical, thermal etc. The UAS doesn't have to be all military grade, just effective! We are looking for packable UAS and operators as most of the filming is in tough climates. Think of packing your UAS in the man vs wild episodes. It will be like that at times.

We do not have anything signed at this time. I am only locating talent to assist should the contract be signed in the future. Obviously we still have the FAA to deal with but part of our group are military contractors so MAYBE we will have some clout there. Once wages etc are all agreed on, Aerosight will discuss finders fees for the series with all involved.

Please list all of your contact info, abilities, pics of equipment etc. And list any/all projects you have done, IE: Searches, Mapping, etc..

How about the Australian Outback UAV Challenge?

It's a competition but all the entrants are developing UAV's for Search and Rescue?

How are you going to handle export controls for ex US work? A word of warning..I had an experience with a production house contracted to Nat Geo to do some thermal imaging and their modus operandi was to talk all and sundry into contributing to their project by holding out the prospect of getting on tv but as soon as it came time to pony over hard cash for real work they baulked and started passing invoices from one party to the next. I recommend you get iron glad contracts before spending a dime of your time or money.
