For those who really would like a true appreciation for Tim Jamison and his humor, here is his reply to a recent email regarding our certificate of waiver for night time drone operations:

"I see a whole new realm of possibilities opening up. Instead of “ground pounders,” we will now have “drone jockeys.” We’ll have air scent drones and cadaver drones, each flanked by two support drones. We’ll establish the South Carolina Search and Rescue Drone Association. The current SCSARDA may take exception, but what chance do a few dog lovers have against an entire drone army? The next wave will be self-guided, trail-running robots. Grid searches will be a matter of programming the area on a map, pushing a button, and unleashing the mechanical searchers on their prey. The lost won’t have a chance."
