On Tuesday, the Federal Aviation Administration unveiled a new set of guidelines to govern the commercial use of drones, a turning point that many in the industry believe will open up a new frontier of opportunities. In light of that announcement, one Menlo Park, Calif.-based startup is well-poised to take advantage of the new regulations, which have been anticipated for months.

We talked to Paul Doersch, CEO of Kespry, a startup that designs and builds autonomous drones for industry, about the use of drones. He’s particularly excited at the prospect of new FAA regulations, calling them a possible inflection point for the commercial drones industry. The current regulatory environment, he says, creates an “artificial friction” he hopes the new regulations will solve.
