As the employment of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) increases, a recent report has named North Dakota as the state most prepared for commercial drone use.
North Dakota has dedicated time and money to researching, designing, and providing the necessary tools for widespread drone use. UAVs can be deployed very effectively for a broad range of applications, including aerial imaging, emergency rescue, and delivery of goods, but, in some cases, legal issues have slowed their adoption. North Dakota’s state laws for drone users, together with its pioneering UAV network, mean that it is ready for widespread commercial drone use in the near future. Its residents have already benefited from a pilot scheme for delivery of essential items, and, with drone technology to survey specific sites, a range of essential industries and emergency services are being served.
