Mention the word œdrone and the first thing that pops to mind for most people is œmilitary. Drones, sometimes known as unmanned aircraft systems (UAS) or an unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) are used in government agencies like the military or police, but the other applications these aircraft can be used for is staggering. Todd Carrison, of the aviation podcast Beyond the Flightline, says œdrones are like extravagant radio controlled aircraft that have nearly unlimited potential. In his latest podcast, Todd investigates the possibilities as he interviews Rich Brown, UAS Technician in the Applied Aviation Research Center at Kansas State University Campus in Salina Kansas, as they talk about the current use of drones and how K-State's School of Aviation is involved in the future development of these type of aircraft.
