UAS in the News
Capturing drones in-flight

How Entrepreneurs Can Find and Act on Business Opportunity
UASs, (unmanned aerial systems, or drones) for ground, sea, and air applications present an unprecedented opportunity as delivery platforms for improvised threats including explosive, chemical, radiological, biological, and electronic warfare devices. Further, we have seen recent incidents of drones flying in restricted airspace, disrupting commercial air traffic, and accounts of these devices covertly spying on civilians.
While a knee-jerk reaction to these illegal uses may be to "knock them out of the sky" such action can be very dangerous. In some cases, destroying vehicles carrying weapon payloads may aid in the dispersal of the dangerous payload over a populated area. Regardless of payload, shooting down a drone creates the potential for collateral ground damage.
The Air Force has extensive experience with UASs both in their utilization and in disabling those operated by the enemy. From that expertise comes this novel technology to capture drones in use (while flying, driving along the ground, or operating at sea).

Drones delivering blood in emergencies: The future of health care?
Palo Alto, California, hopes to become the first U.S. city to use unmanned aircraft to deliver blood from a blood bank to a hospital.

A drone helps in the prosecution of an illegal moose poacher
In April 2017 a cow and calf moose were illegally shot near Alvena, Saskatchewan in Canada. To assist in the prosecution, Draganfly Innovations, and Saskatchewan Polytechnic were asked to create a 3D map of the conservation-related crime scene. With an Engage Grant from the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada, the work was started the same month. The team used a fixed-wing drone to create a detailed visual story that would help the prosecution of the illegal moose poacher.
The U.S. is building a massive, $110 million drone base in the Sahara
Right outside of Agadez, Niger, in the scrublands of the Sahara, the U.S. airforce is building a massive 2,200-acre drone base, costing $110 million and making it the largest troop largest troop labor construction project in U.S. history, according to the Associated Press. The base should be completed in the next couple of month but as you can imagine, building an airfield in the desert tends to be very complicated. The project already is over $22 million budget and delayed by one year. The new drone base will be used to target extremists deep into West and North Africa, regions that are currently hard to reach with drones.

Private wireless networks are quietly becoming a thing
For years now, a number of wireless players have been promising that there is demand among enterprises and others for private wireless networks. The argument is that utilities, cities, manufacturing companies and others have specific applications that can't or shouldn't run over public wireless networks, and so they will need to build their own networks—and will spend money to do it.
