Skydio – Electric Infrastructure Inspection with Drones
Utility inspections are absolutely critical for ensuring uptime and safety of our power grid, but these inspections often pose serious safety risks to the inspector. Inspectors must often fly low over power plants, transmission towers, and distribution poles by helicopter, or climb to high altitudes in high-voltage environments. In some cases, safety requires so much of the inspector's attention that the data quality of the inspection suffers.

Can We Prevent a Drone Terror Attack?
The Crime Report
The uncontrolled market in toy or hobbyist drones makes their future use in a domestic terrorist attack "likely," says a researcher and lecturer on drone warfare.
But it will still require sophisticated technical skills to deploy them effectively.
Use of agricultural drones on rise as farms seek ways to improve production and crop quality
Steve Kyes owns roughly 2,800 acres of farmland north of here, mostly corn and soybean fields. With the help of his stepson, Andrew Luebbe, and a hired employee, Kyes, 44, and his crew have focused on increasing their profits. Inside Kyes' farm office sits an unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) — commonly known as a drone — with the potential to make his operation more efficient and, maybe someday, more profitable. Across the country, farmers like Kyes are taking to the sky in hopes of improving production and quality on the ground. As always, there's a cost-benefit equation: The bill for a drone and accessories can fly past $1,500, not counting specialized cameras or other gear.
