National Public Safety Drone Donation Program

National Public Safety Drone Donation Program

One attendee at Commercial UAV Expo wasn’t looking to acquire drones but rather to give them away.  Marc Langley heads a non-profit organization which goes by the inelegant acronym NPS-DDP — short for the “National Public Safety Drone Donation Program.” The program itself, however, is anything but inelegant or clunky.

Anafi AI

Anafi AI

The new sleek, white Parrot Anafi AI has been described as resembling either a praying mantis or the starship Enterprise—or perhaps a praying mantis eating the starship Enterprise. It’s a very peculiar design. To learn more about it, I spoke with François-Xavier “FX” Charbonnel, the company’s regional sales manager for the Americas. Like many of […]

Flying Without Wings

Flying Without Wings
