Trenton, NJ - According to April Klimley in the New Jersey Business Magazine, "At last, drones are coming to New Jersey – legally. In April, the Federal Aviation Administration granted approval for Unmanned Sensing Systems LLC (US2), a fledgling company in Mt. Laurel, to operate commercial drones in all 50 states."
Washington D.C. - "Technology has potential to radically improve our lives." That is the last line in Congressman LoBiondo's recent OpEd in the Courier Post. He discussed the importance in investing aerospace technologies and the United States as well as New Jersey are ready to lead in their industry. Below is his original article.
Trenton, NJ - In fewer than five years, the use of drones could become common practice for almost 40 percent of businesses, say corporate risk managers surveyed by Munich Re. What is the greatest risk of using drones for business purposes? Sixty-nine percent of the risk managers surveyed said potential issues related to “invasion of privacy” were their biggest concern, followed by inadequate insurance (12 percent), personal injury (11 percent), and property damage (8 percent)."
Washington D.C. - According to Babette Boliek, "Drones are hot. The possibility of a drone-filled future fires the imagination. Packages, papers and even groceries might be (and in some areas, are currently) delivered by drones. Farmers already use drones to survey their crops, spray fertilizer and pesticides, and efficiently allocate other scarce resources. Beyond such private uses, it is also easy to see how drones will contribute to the public good – whether scanning for forest fires or tracking poachers in Africa, there is tremendous untapped potential for drones to protect lives and property. In order for these potential benefits to materialize, however, innovators and entrepreneurs need space. Unfortunately, when it comes to drones (and so many other new technologies), regulators seem reluctant to provide the needed leeway."
Washington D.C. - According to the Bergen Patch, "U.S. Sens. Cory Booker (D-NJ), and John Hoeven (R-ND), today introduced the Commercial UAS Modernization Act, legislation that sets interim operating guidelines for commercial unmanned aircraft systems (UAS), commonly known as drones, and creates a framework to promote American innovation in the rapidly growing field."
West Milford, NJ – According to David Zimmer of the Record, “A new commercial enterprise is buzzing around North Jersey skies. In a process he described as painfully arduous, township resident Frank Galella and his Lincoln Park-based Next Generation Aviation Services recently gained federal approval to commercially operate unmanned aircraft systems (UAS).”
