Routescene joins ARPAS – the UK Drone Association

Posted on September 12, 2019 in

At Routescene we are passionate about cultivating an engaged community of drone operators. We design, develop and manufacture integrated 3D mapping solutions using LiDAR specifically for use on drones (Unmanned Aerial Vehicles or UAVs). We are delighted to have become a member of ARPAS.


ARPAS, the Association of Remotely Piloted Aircraft Systems, is a not for profit trade association and professional body. It supports and acts on behalf of the remotely piloted aircraft (RPAS) community.

Why Routescene joins ARPAS

Routecene CEO and founder, Gert Riemersma, commented, “In joining ARPAS, we feel we have found an organisation that will work closely with industry regulators. In particular, CAA (Civil Aviation Authority), as well as UK Government departments to influence and ensure that the regulatory framework for the safe and professional operation of remotely piloted aircraft is fit for purpose and encourages best practice.”

Graham Brown, ARPAS-UK CEO, said: “We’re delighted to welcome Routescene as a new member of ARPAS-UK. Routescene offers LiDAR solutions for drones and software that can be used in multiple sectors to great advantage. Routescene is supporting the drone industry as it evolves and we’re pleased to have them on board.”

Gert Riemersma added, “We feel ARPAS’s vision perfectly aligns with our own. Our partnership with this leading authoritative body will be an invaluable asset, providing resources and to raise awareness across the membership and beyond.”
