North Dakota’s footprint in the UAV industry is growing, aided by the recent announcement that the FAA has approved small UAV flights at its test site. By proactively addressing topics like public safety procedures and privacy restrictions, the state has not been caught up in the privacy debates others have been. North Dakota is benefiting not only from this lack of controversy and state investment to encourage UAV research, but also from its environment. A relatively small population and lack of commercial air traffic combines with varying weather conditions to make the state an attractive test site. (Image Credit: NDSU)
