First, statewide, unmanned aircraft system begins

BVLOS network for western North Dakota

Our nation's first, statewide unmanned aircraft system (UAS) beyond visual line of site (BVLOS) network buildout will begin in the counties of McKenzie and Williams. Beginning the network here is partially due to the many potential commercial applications in the petroleum industry. The network called Vantis, has wide-ranging potential applications besides the petroleum industry. For more information see this Government Technology Magazine article, sUAS News article, this Grand Forks Herald article, this Williston Herald article or this Vantis press release.

The Buzz

In Watford I got to go to my first National Park. I made some friends and we went to the badlands and saw things we never heard of before like jackrabbits and mule deer. In my opinion Watford is the best city ever!
