In recent months there has been an increase in media coverage of the use of Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS) technology, and in particular small (s)UAS, such as the Aeryon Scout™. At a time when there is growing controversy surrounding sUAS technology and how it is being used, we want to highlight a different perspective: the positive applications and benefits.

February 26, 2013—Small unmanned aerial systems (sUAS) are quickly being adopted by commercial, industrial and public safety organizations to do jobs faster and safer than previously possible. Aeryon Labs Inc., partner Datron World Communications discussed how the Scout is helping firefighters do their job safely and effectively. Orion Linekin of Datron tells NBC, "the scout is designed as a squad level solution for that soldier on the front line or that firefighter public safety officer on the front line to get immediate situational awareness."
Aeryon Scout sUAS participates in operational trials for electrical infrastructure inspection and helps the Federal Emergency Management Agency and U.S based power companies to quickly assess damage from natural disasters or storms.
