Good evening all - my name is Niall Twomey and I'm an Active Duty Warrant Officer in the US Army. I have been a UAS Operations Technician since 2005 and am currently assigned as the Division UAS Officer at 4th Infantry Division as a CW4. I'm connecting with this forum to start tracking all that is going on with the commercial side of the house for UAS, and to start forming ideas for when the time comes to retire. I hit 19 years in July and am on the fence about punching out soon or sticking around to make CW5. I have to admit, the sound of being a civilian is very enticing after 5 combat deployments! Anyways, looking forward to learning from you all and catching up with how things on the civilian side of this are operating. Cheers. Niall
For those that may have missed this segment on 60 Minutes this past week, here's a link to it online. http://www.cbsnews.com/news/60-minutes-autonomous-drones-set-to-revolutionize-military-technology/ Very interesting application of multiple drones working in "harmony" for a common goal. But wait, there's more!.......... Just today, FAA granted a waiver to a company in California waiving 107.35: Operation of mulitple small unmanned aircraft systems. This is only the 6th time, by my count, that FAA has waived this part of the rulemaking and the stipulations are interesting to read. Here's the link to the waiver https://www.faa.gov/uas/request_waiver/waivers_granted/media/107W-2016-00213B_Nightingale_CoW.pdf
