Newsy Highlights Summer Games and the Winning Drone Solution That Could Change Lives of the Warfighter

Summary: 

Generation Z represents today’s students and tomorrow’s workers. According to a survey by software marketing company Marketo, they’re future-focused realists with a drive to create things, and a majority (60%) want their jobs to impact the world. Does the terrain ahead present clear passage, or a possible ambush? Thanks to the winning project of the Booz Allen Summer Games intern challenge, ground commanders in war zones will be able to make decisions like this in minutes, rather than hours, with a portable reconnaissance device that’s easy to assemble and repair. Chase Seals, host of Newsy’s show “The Why,” took time to hear from senior leaders on the success of the program and impact of the winning solution through eyes of the winning Summer Games interns.

Merck Emergency Drone Delivery Experiment Combines Supply Chain Innovation and Corporate Responsibility

Blog

A Merck experiment flying drones carrying medicines to remote locations to see if the technology is viable during emergencies may have appeal in disaster situations.

The pilot tests are innovative not just because they involve unmanned aerial vehicles but because of the technology-enabled, real-time, cold-chain monitoring systems on board. In simple terms, a device like a mobile phone sends data from the drone to the ground so engineers can monitor the temperature and therefore verify the stability of the medicines during the flight.
