We have been patiently developing a small Unmanned Aerial System (sUAS) for commercial applications such as agriculture and environmental monitoring, aerial video and imaging for Geographic Information Systems (GIS), and urban planning applications. We are developing the Air Vehicle (AV), Ground Control Station (GCS), and Flight Control and Communication Systems (FCCS) with the goal of realizing a vertically designed and integrated sUAS. Our patience stems from the realization that the regulatory compliance concerns must be developed and matured before a reliable sUAS solution can be delivered. Until then we consider all commercial sUAS operations as test activities that simply help refine the regulations.
