Inside Vantis’ Mission and Network Operations Center
GRAND FORKS, N.D. (KUMV) – Drone operators in northwest North Dakota are testing out the initial stages of a statewide drone network that allows them to fly beyond their visual line of sight. While testing takes place near Watford City and Williston, it’s up to the people at the Mission and Network Operations Center (MNOC) near Grand Forks to guide the drones during their flight. “This is going to be the heart of the Vantis network. We’re here to ensure safety is the top priority and ensure all the services are functioning as they should,” said Gee Abdulmur, Technical Operations Manager.
