Biography

Zack Wasson is the Founder and CEO of Diodrone, which specialises in the use of drones as tools for engineering and asset management. After 6 years as an engineer working on various infrastructure, mining and utilities projects, Zack founded Diodrone with a mission to improve the way we manage the built environment. Since 2016, the company has become a key player in the introduction of drone technology to transport and public infrastructure across Australia. In 2016, Diodrone became the first company to operate drones for Sydney Trains, developing methodologies and procedures for operating in public spaces and over live rail corridors. In 2017, Diodrone became one of the first commercial operators in Australia to offer drone LiDAR capabilities. Working with asset managers and engineers on a daily basis has given Zack a unique insight into this emerging technology and its place in public works engineering.
