New interest in UAV technology


Recommended Posts

I recently retired to Florida and began looking for new interests that could be both useful and fun. I was trained as a cartographer in the Army and then worked on helicopter navigation systems in Vietnam. That got me fascinated with combining aviation and mapping. After a career totally unrelated to either one but now with the time to invest and the advancement of UAV technologies my old interest in these areas has been rekindled. It appears to me that there is great potential for applying these technologies to a variety of problems that in the past required manned aircraft and large, heavy photo/mapping equipment to solve. I'm mostly interested in learning the the technology, mastering some flying skills and seeing where it goes from there.
