The Asylon team was recently invited to participate, and won 2nd place, in the Drone Innovation Start-up Contest hosted by Krypto Labs in Dubai! For a contest that had over 600 applications, we were honored to be selected as a Top 5 finalist and invited to pitch live from the Krypto Labs stage. As the only American team in the Top 5, it was humbling to be surrounded by some of the greatest minds in the Drone space from around the world.
I’d like to use this blog post to summarize some of Asylon’s activities in the military markets this past fall. We were lucky enough to be invited to participate in activities with SOFWERX. SOFWERX is a partnership between the Doolittle Institute and USSOCOM, designed to bring innovative technologies to the warfighter. Located in Tampa, FL, they boast an 8000 square foot facility where tech innovators and the military can come together to create innovative technologies.
In our last blog post, I made some recommendations for starter drones for those of you that have never flown a drone and want to see what all of the excitement is about. In this post, I want to help you through the process of getting setup to make money using these flying machines! We'll talk about federal regulations, to picking out a drone, to a few opportunities you can pursue to get started making some money. So let's dive in!
Over the past several years, the world has witnessed the explosion of a new industry - drones! With advances in technology, driven primarily by the smartphone industry, we have seen these machines transform from a luxury toy at the mall's novelty store to the stars of a new, high-adrenaline sport with its own ESPN coverage. If you're anything like me, it's hard to watch these drones seemingly defy gravity and laugh in the face of Newtonian physics without wanting to get in on the action. But if you're new to drones, it's easy to become overwhelmed trying to determine what your first purchase should be. But fear not! This post will help you pick out your first starter drone!
