Airborne-Unmanned 08.08.17: Insitu's Million, 3DR & DJI, Drones v Pythons

Also: Lego Drones, Farmers Insurance UAVs, Orlando Repealing Drone Ordinance?, BALPA Drone Study Questioned

Insitu recently reached a milestone worth celebrating when the company's unmanned platforms — ScanEagle, Integrator and RQ-21A Blackjack — hit a collective one million operational flight hours recently. This event represents the latest achievement in the company's 23 year aviation history.

"Insitu's path to one million operational flight hours has been navigated by our why statement, which is 'to pioneer and innovate in all that we do so we positively impact peoples' lives and change the course of history,'" said Ryan M. Hartman, Insitu president and CEO. An agreement has been announced between 3DR and DJI to make 3DR’s Site Scan software compatible with DJI drones to manage and analyze the data collected by the drones. DJI drones will work with Site Scan, including its autonomous flight modes, multi-engine cloud processing, and suite of tools designed for construction, such as: performing topographic surveys, calculating cut and fill volumes, measuring stockpiles, exporting native Autodesk file formats, and much more. It is estimated that over 100,000 Burmese pythons are living in the Everglades and are ravaging wildlife.  Because the female python can lay up to 80 eggs per clutch, they are multiplying exponentially and decimating the state's small mammal population. Both the Florida Fish & Wildlife and the South Florida Water Management District are continuously looking for solutions to this python problem. One such solution involves using drones equipped with thermal imaging cameras to find and track the snakes. Volaero Drones, a professional drone services company, is working with the state of Florida. All this -- and MORE in today's episode of Airborne-Unmanned!!!
