Do you have an idea that could provide benefits to our military?
Then you’re going to be really excited to hear what today’s guest have to say. We’re going to be hearing from three individuals who are part of an innovative technology transfer program in Tampa, Florida. Under an agreement with the US Special Operations Command and the Doolittle Institute, Sofwerx was created to act an intermediary for collaborating with private industry, research labs and academic partners to develop new technol ogies. In short, Sofwerx is a portal by which the commercial UAS industry can quickly access and jointly develop applications and technologies to solve the most pressing needs of special operations.
Sofwerx is sponsoring a special program called, ThunderDrone, a series of rapid prototyping events that focus on different aspects of drone technology. Industry and academia have been invited to submit their best ideas to the special operations community.
In this episode of the Drone Radio Show, Kelly Stratton-Feix, director of Acquisition Agility for the U.S. Special Operations Command. John Coglianese, ThunderDrone Lead at Sofwerx and Captain Barron Stone of the US Air Force and ThunderDrone Project Manager talk about Sofwerx, Thunderdrone and how collaborations like this can benefit the commercial drone industry.
What’s it take to create a really compelling drone video?
For that question, we turn to two people that spend most of their day watching and ranking drone videos submitted by people from all over the world.

AirVuz was was launched in late 2015 as a video-sharing platform for the worldwide drone community. Featuring a blend of user-generated content and original programming, AirVūz has become the premiere online video site for the emerging Drone Age. In this edition of the Drone Radio Show, Megan and Tyler talk about the factors that can boost a video’s likeability and push it to the top of the charts. Anyone wanting to take their drone videos to the next level will be interested in hearing what Tyler and Megan have to share.
What’s it take to build a drone based business in 2018?
If you asked today’s guest, he would say “Persistence, Flexibility and a lot of thinking outside the box”. Matthew Johnson is President of M3 Aerial Productions and an Instructor at Brandon University UAV Ground School in Canada. In 2015, Matthew launched his drone services company, and like a lot of new small drone based businesses, he struggled to establish his operation. But by continually to refine his business plan and menu of services, Matthew was able to transition the once part-time operation into a full-time, profitbable business. In this episode of the Drone Radio Show, Matthew talks about the challenges of creating a drone based business in today’s climate and how operators can achieve a positive cash flow by seeking multiple income streams.
