Fargo company creates app to monitor drones

-

The news clip about a drone entering busy airspace and nearly colliding with an aircraft caught Shawn Muehler’s eye.

There’s got to be a way to prevent these near misses, Muehler, a military pilot, thought as he watched the increasingly familiar story unfold.

For the past eight months, Fargoans Muehler and Alex Kube, a software developer, have been working to create a safety application for unmanned aircraft.

The result is Botlink, an application that shows drone pilots where manned aircraft are as well as controlled airspaces, which require permission to enter.

LRSC students study ag potential of UAS

-

Paul Gunderson gets excited when showing off equipment and talking about farming at Lake Region State College’s Precision Agriculture Center.

It’s his mission to make sure the students graduating from the Devils Lake, N.D., college’s precision agriculture program have a real-world grasp of skills they can utilize, including the use of unmanned aerial systems.

“While the unmanned aerial arena looks particularly enticing to producers, there’s an awful lot of crap,” Gunderson said. “There’s a lot of hype, and a lot of it is not very helpful.”

LRSC prepares students for careers in wind energy industry

-

Brendon Ruppell, Patrick Becker and Joseph Lordson joked around as they loaded up their climbing gear last week at Lake Region State College in Devils Lake.

As first-year wind energy tech students, the trio was getting ready to scale the school’s nearly 300-foot-tall wind turbine.

With the only wind energy technician program in the state, instructor Jay Johnson and his students are some of the few who experience the thrill of working on machinery as it sways slightly in the breeze about 24 stories high.

Intelligent InSites software aids hospitals in stopping outbreaks
