Picture a drone helicopter circling cropland to alert a farmer to the onset of pests ravaging cropland
The farmer then could take swift action, eradicating the nuisance before it did more damage.

Scion UAS, founded last year, recently hired a business development manager who has contacts in civilian and military unmanned aircraft systems markets. The company hopes to parlay his Rolodex to gain a foothold in the agricultural market.
