Only a few more days to go...  THE major unmanned exposition of the year -- AUVSI XPONENTIAL 2018 starts Monday, April 30, 2018 and runs through Thursday, May 3, 2018 at the Colorado Convention Center, in Denver.

This premier event unites the largest global community of drone, intelligent robotics and unmanned systems leaders to shape the future of the industry. Featuring the largest and most comprehensive trade show, this event is the spot to learn from daily keynotes with tech visionaries and 200+ world-class sessions as well as connect with 8,500+ industry pros and business experts from 20+ industries. Drone pilot Duncan Sinfield has been regularly capturing videos of the construction of Apple's new circular campus in ... dubbed "Apple Park" ... being build in Cupertino, CA. But that looks like Apple is not particularly keen on the idea. The circular building described as looking like a "spaceship" has been under construction since 2014, and the building has been in use since September, 2017. Sinfield had been posting new video of Apple Park about twice a month. But recently, he says that he's been asked to leave by Apple security personnel shortly after he's launched his drone. The UN International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), in partnership with the UN Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) and the non-profit group WeRobotics, have developed a drone-based mechanism that overcomes a critical bottleneck in the application of Sterile Insect Technique (SIT) to control insect pests. SIT, a form of insect birth control, uses radiation to sterilize male mosquitoes, which are then released to mate with wild females. As these do not produce any offspring, the insect population declines over time. However, to be effective, the technique requires the uniform release of large numbers of insects in good condition over a given area. All this -- and MORE in today's episode of Airborne-Unmanned!!!
