Recently, I had the good fortune to talk with Craig Nehrkorn, co-founder of Drone Dynamics. His enthusiasm for drones is infectious. Craig is a passionate advocate and he is certain that the UAS industry is ready to bridge the gap between the promise of drones and today’s commercial and government needs. The most important takeaway from our conversation was that the drone industry is flourishing with ideas for drone uses and drone capabilities being created every day.
