Drone Research, Inc. a newly formed Ohio nonprofit will soon begin operations with Ashley Krutko heading up the board as CEO.
Krutko is a Capital University graduate with a major in Environmental Science and a minor in Geology. Krutko says the organisations mission is simple and as follows:
Drone Research, Inc.’s mission is to share knowledge of building and using low-cost unmanned aerial vehicles (Drones) for conservation, agriculture, environmental research, disaster, and search and rescue with researchers/nonprofits organizations worldwide. Drone Research, Inc. works closely with all groups to help them understand the use of drones for their particular applications and/or purposes. Drone Research, Inc. also works with children with disabilities allowing them a chance to fly and explore without leaving the ground.
Drone Research, Inc. will be working in three areas:
- Farming – Drone Research, Inc. will offer farmers free aerial views and photos of their growing areas
- Missing persons – saving costs on resources such as helicopters and volunteers
- Working with disabled children – UAVs are equipped with special goggles that give the pilot and others a First Person View, giving them the chance to see the world from above
“Although we are a new nonprofit, we are ready to help many people and nonprofit environmental groups,” says Krutko.
Drone Research Inc. are looking for donations and volunteers.
