In the Kansas City Business Journal’s Weekly Edition, out Friday, the cover story explores how the demand for drones is growing almost as rapidly as the possible uses for the unmanned aircraft.
From farmers to filmmakers to construction companies, businesses are envisioning ways to put unmanned aircraft systems to work. Among the stories: how KC businesses are finding ways to use — and sell — drones; a look at the struggles federal regulators face keeping their rules as current as the technology; and a degree program in UAS at Kansas State University.
The package includes a story about Tony Lauer, a Shawnee resident who has found a way to wed his high-tech hobby with his grass-roots passion, employing his bought and homemade drones to keep a watchful eye on government and developments.
In the video above, Lauer talks about his fleet of drones and their uses.
