About Our Speakers

Bryan Fitzpatrick M.S.

Program Director for FAC 008 Data Collection

Bryan’s work in remote sensing technology began as an attack helicopter pilot for the U.S. Army in 2004. Over the course of two and a half years flying in combat operations, Bryan used various advanced sensors to accomplish hundreds of reconnaissance and attack missions. He learned out to combine thermal imaging, visual sensors, RADAR returns and augmented reality to identify targets and measure distances.
Bryan joined SAM in 2014 after 10 years in the United States Army. He has 18 years of experience in aviation, both as a helicopter pilot and more recently as a drone pilot. Now serving as a business development manager, he spearheads SAM’s drone and conductor measurement programs. He is the lead inventor on SAMs patented technology for conductor measurement techniques and procedures that are changing the way utilities inventory their equipment.
Bryan is a commercial helicopter pilot with over 2,200 flight hours in the United States and overseas. Bryan is a graduate of West Point and the University of Southern California, with a B.S. and M.S. in Geospatial Information Science. His work with GIS for managing projects has helped various departments within SAM gain project efficiency.
Bryan’s favorite SAM value is People. His Army experience taught him that whatever the mission, you must always take care of your Soldiers, and transitioning to a company like SAM has helped him bring that value into action.
