“In barely a century, the world has gone from inventing manned flight to pioneering unmanned flight. It’s breathtaking.”
– Matt Scassero, Director, University of Maryland UAS Test Site
It goes without question the use of drones – both in business and for recreation – has truly taken off over the last few years. Now equipped with technology like cameras, thermal imaging capabilities, and even computers, drones are being used in industries across the board. For law enforcement, drones help spot criminals on the run from the air; for the government, they can help monitor terrorism; for farmers, it’s a whole new ability to monitor crops; and for insurance carriers, drones offer the ability to look at assets – both before and after a disaster. These are just the tip of the iceberg.
