Drone and UAS Traffic Management With increased UAS activity, it is important to think about safety in the skies. NASA began its research into UAS traffic management system operations (UTM) to enable low altitude civilian aircraft flight, as well as commercial surveillance. Currently there is no established guidelines for drone traffic, but NASA predicts that […]
Drones in architecture is becoming increasingly valuable. Architects are using drones to give a better perspective to building projects. Here in this example is Urban Rigger with the latest in affordable student housing. These are floating neighborhood…
What is the real value of real estate aerial images and video marketing? We lived in this small beach town for many years and found that while most people get used to their surroundings you can get an entirely different perspective when you look at a place from a different view point. These are a […]
Collecting wind farm data can be tricky. Climbing up to wind turbine blades to inspect them for damage can be dangerous and time-consuming. Once up there, some inspectors rely only on a cell phone camera to snap pictures of any problems. The inspection process of an entire field can take months. Fortunately, advancements in drone […]
