NASA’s historic role of removing technology barriers to the development of the aviation industry needs to include a host of issues constraining the rapidly-growing industry of unmanned aerial systems (UAS).
This industry promises to provide many benefits in wide-ranging applications: agriculture, real estate, power line and solar farm inspection, search and rescue, movie making, insurance claims, package delivery, news collecting, emergency response, volcanic eruptions, cloud seeding, delivering blood samples, game poaching, and tracking monkeys in Borneo to spot malaria outbreaks. Recent news articles are useful for illustrating the recognition of its importance and urgency.
