North Dakota Continues as Technology Pioneer – This Time with Drones

Posted on

It’d be difficult to miss the discussion of UAVs in North Dakota. In fact, the state is being heralded as the “Silicon Valley of Drones.” More and more companies are recognizing the possibilities that drones can provide them.

Recently at Drone Focus, a once-a-month meetup, industry leaders provided insight into their uses of UAVs. These Drone Focus meetings, organized by Emerging Prairie, are a time where users, businesses, and government officials can ask questions, discuss the technology and regulations, and learn and help one another. (Read full coverage of the February meeting here.)

Scott Schumacher (@RDOICScottS), Account Manager in Moorhead, MN, represented RDO Integrated Controls at the event and spoke about how the team is helping companies find new, unique uses for drones, like working with the Minnesota Department of Transportation on a bridge safety project (see more information about that project here).

“We’re happy to have a seat at the table to discuss how UAS technology makes our customers more efficient, productive, and profitable,” commented Scott.

There’s so much happening with UAVs not only in North Dakota, but across our entire footprint, and you won’t want to miss it. Check out all our recent drone blog posts and contact us to find out more.

And Save the Date for the 2nd annual Drone Focus Conference, happening June 1 in Fargo, ND. Back for its second year, this event will feature presenters from across the nation, local industry leaders, and technology innovators who will share insight on the growth, advancement, and future of the drone industry. RDO Equipment Co. is proud to return as an event partner.
