AT&T Restores Cell Service in Puerto Rico with “Flying COW” Drone

In Puerto Rico, thanks to fast-track approval given buy the FAA, drones are now part of the recovery effort. Specifically drones are being used to restore voice, data and Internet services to the entire island. A great example of this is the AT&T "Flying COW" (Cell on Wings). The deployment of the "Flying COW" in Puerto Rico is unique because it's the first time a drone has been successfully used to connect residents to services post disaster. The project has been hugely successful too; AT&T is reporting 80% of Puerto Rico's cell customers now have service (up from 63%).

Drones On The Farm: Seven Precision Agriculture Use Cases

I recently received an email that drew my attention to the "Seven Ways to Use Drone Mapping on the Farm This Season" article from the DroneDeploy blog. The article is a little bit older, it was originally posted back in January, however it's a good read for drone operators interested in precision agriculture. What is Precision [...]

Amazon Protects Drone Deliveries With “Bow-and-Arrow-Proof Drones”

Shipments from Amazon All drone pilots have had to accept the fact, at one time or another, that crashes happen. When crashed happen, we cross our fingers and hope that our precious drone comes out relatively unscathed. It's a weird feeling, praying for your rotor to break, but hey, better a rotor then a frame, right? [...]

Commercial Drone Operator Provides Firefighters With Valuable Air Support

How often do you find a story where the drone was featured as the hero (or at the very least one of the good guys)? On Maui, a remote brush fire that burned four acres created a unique opportunity for a commercial drone operator, working for Maui 24/7, to provide support to the fire department. [...]
