Drones 101
RUTLAND, Vt. – Military device, agricultural tool, or hobbyist toy?  These are only a few applications for drones, and the variety of uses continues to grow.  Join us at the Energy Innovation Center Tuesday, January 12, for a fun and informative presentation by Jon Budreski of AirShark.  Budreski will explore the technology and varied applications of drones. 
The free public event begins at 5:30 p.m. and will last approximately an hour. Light refreshments will be served. 
Budreski offers insight into regulations and privacy, hardware and software, information and analytics, and the future of drone technology.  AirShark was the first company in Vermont to be approved to fly drones commercially in May 2015 and focuses on industrial inspection support.
