Martin Flood
Vice President, Special Projects, GeoCue

Mr. Flood is currently the Vice President, Special Projects for GeoCue Group, Inc., a technology development and consulting services company dedicated to creating hardware and software tools for improving geospatial data production processes. Martin’s primary focus is on UAV payload development and the related data processing workflow optimization for organizations working with new UAV sensor technologies such as lidar. He also works with GeoCue Group’s enterprise consulting group to deploy cloud-hosted data management solutions built using GeoCue’s Earth Sensor Portal web publishing technology. Martin began his career in 1991 working on lidar sensor hardware development at Optech, Inc. and was involved in the development of the first commercial airborne lidar terrain mapping systems released by Optech in 1995. He has also held senior management positions at several commercial lidar production firms. He is a member of the American Society for Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing (ASPRS) and a past Chair of the ASPRS Lidar Technical Committee. He currently serves on the ILMF Advisory Board. Martin received his undergraduate degree from the University of Waterloo and his M.Sc. in Physics from the University of Western Ontario. He has over 25 years’ experience in the design and construction of advanced laser systems and optimizing data processing workflows for remote sensing applications.

Scott Harrigan
Owner/President, Harkin Aerial

Scott Harrigan is the Owner and Chief Pilot at Harkin Aerial. A mechanical engineer by trade, Scott first started in the industry as an junior MEP engineer at Nelson & Pope on Long Island, when he completed drafting and design for various energy and transportation infrastructure projects in NYC, Nassau, and Suffolk County. At that time, he was also introduced to drone technology by friends in filmmaking. Years later, after seeing the incredible benefits drones could provide by accessing dangerous locations, Scott founded Harkin Aerial. At Harkin, he works to assist engineering, construction, and architecture firms by providing data collection and consulting services using drones. In addition to his role at Harkin, Scott currently serves as a 2nd Lieutenant and Aerospace Education Officer with the Long Island Group of the U.S. Civil Air Patrol, where he utilizes drones to fulfill CAP’s Aerospace Education and Search & Rescue directives. Scott is also an active member of the Academy of Model Aeronautics (AMA), as well as the Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association (AOPA). Scott holds a Bachelor’s of Science in Mechanical Engineering from Binghamton University.
