GlobalMedic, Monadrone and Aeryon Labs collaborate to deliver disaster relief in Nepal

Aeryon sUAS provide immediate aerial image capture to support first response teams in the wake of the Kathmandu valley earthquake

Waterloo, ON – In response to the recent 7.8-magnitude earthquake in Nepal, Aeryon Labs Inc., the premier manufacturer of small Unmanned Aerial Systems (sUAS), has deployed three of its sUAS and a qualified Aeryon pilot to the affected region. Aeryon is collaborating with partners GlobalMedic and Monadrone to provide aerial support to international disaster relief teams on the ground.

“The Global Medic UAV team responded immediately to the crisis in Nepal. sUAS provide us the unmatched capability to get onsite and into the air immediately to start determining how and where to provide support to the people.” said Rahul Singh, Executive Director, GlobalMedic.


Aeryon Labs gets U.S. regulatory approval for its drones

WATERLOO — Aeryon Labs Inc., a Waterloo-based maker of small drones, expects to see a lot of growth following regulatory approvals for its drones in the United States.

"This is absolutely enormous in multiple ways," said David Kroetsch, the firm's founder, president and chief executive officer.

The company announced Wednesday that Kansas State University at Salina and the Michigan State Police are now able to use Aeryon drones statewide. And VDOS Global LLC, a company that uses Aeryon drones to inspect onshore and offshore infrastructure in the oil and gas industry can use the technology in Alaska, Hawaii and on the continental U.S.

"It is a giant vote of confidence by our customers that they are confident enough with what they have been doing with the product thus far, that they are rolling it out on a statewide basis," Kroetsch said.

It is also a vote of confidence from the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration, which specifically approved the use of the Aeryon SkyRanger by the Michigan State Police, and the smaller Aeryon Scout by Kansas State University.

Both of those approvals are for statewide usage.


Aeryon small Unmanned Aerial Systems cover more ground with statewide and nationwide FAA approvals

The FAA approved three separate applications for broad scale sUAS use, enabling Aeryon customers to operate where they are needed within the US

Waterloo, ON – Aeryon Labs Inc., the premier manufacturer of small Unmanned Aerial Systems (sUAS), is the first Vertical Take-Off and Landing (VTOL) sUAS provider to be named in statewide approvals by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) for research and public safety applications. Kansas State University Salina (KSU) and the Michigan State Police (MSP) have been granted authority to use Aeryon sUAS throughout their respective states.


Widespread drone use years away, experts say

Businesses may have started planning for the day when drones help their future plans take flight, but experts say corporate visions will have to stay more grounded for several years.

The regulatory framework that has made Canada a welcoming destination for small-scale commercial drone use is in no way ready for a more broad-based adoption of unmanned aircraft, they said, adding new laws and traffic management systems would have to be in place before more ambitious drone-based projects could take off.


Canada’s police forces take to the sky with drones

Halton Regional Police have used their drone [an Aeryon Scout] to search for missing persons, probe collisions, and investigate an armed robbery and homicide. In 2012, the drone even helped officers find about $744,000 worth of marijuana that was growing on a farmer’s field in Milton, Ont.

Halton police first purchased a drone (or Unmanned Aerial Vehicle, as they are known in the industry) to use in their investigations in 2009, when it was still a relatively new technology in law enforcement. Since then, it has been used in 50 police missions, according to now-retired operation manager Det. Dave Banks.
