Businesses watch as UAV industry presence grows in North Dakota

The Grand Forks Herald has a good article today on the growing UAV market in North Dakota.  Industry trade group AUVSI says that agriculture is to be one of the most profitable applications of UAVs.  The University of North Dakota Center for Innovation is at the forefront on many applications in UAVs as North Dakota is one of the FAA test sites.  There is growing pent up demand in the United States and many commercial applications will take right off as soon as the FAA gives permission, as soon as September 2015.
