The National UAV (sUAS) Debate Continues


The mainstream news stories about UAVs getting into the NAS are almost getting commonplace, and maybe that's partly the idea of this post, i.e. to point that out.  Still, maybe we should stay on top of what's being said.

One problem with these short radio spots, in this case seven minutes with two guests, is that you just can't get into the details.  Not a whole lot can can be said past "drones can be good, drones can be bad."  Still, these sound bites are what the general public is hearing and reacting to.  This particular radio show, I'm told, is heard by over 500,000 people across the U.S.

If you go to the page, the audio link to hear the spot is just above the Predator image.  Click HERE.

Listen out today, for the first sUAS News podcast!!!

But don't expect anything polished and it will all probably go wrong and have to be done again.

Patrick has set this up

And later today (heres the detail bit he has still not told me when) he will be talking to Gene Robinson from RP Search Services about search and rescue. 

I believe you can ask questions vis twitter, @sUASNews and well lets hope it all turns out ok.

I am in a round hut in Africa an cannot listen, and prod him especially with a big storm brewing the interweb will be crawling later, if you can remember dial up, that's where I am.

Maybe we will see if John V can answer some questions in the future ;-)

You can apparently call the host
