THE AMERICAN SOCIETY OF BUSINESS PRESS EDITORS (ASBPE) has recog- nized Inside Unmanned Systems maga- zine with three separate awards. Editor Dee Ann Divis won an award for column writing and Christine Waring, Creative Director won an award for magazine de- sign. Senior editor Renee Knight won the Stephen Barr Award, their highest honor, in May for her story on how drones were used to speed recovery from Hurricanes Harvey and Irma. The news analysis pack- age titled "After the Storm" off ered dra- matic fi rst-hand accounts of the life-saving contributions of unmanned aircraft during Hurricane Harvey, and shone a spotlight on the promise of unmanned systems in future disasters. "Renee's work has achieved 'must read' status in the unmanned industry. She has made it her mission at Inside Unmanned Systems to bring clarity to complex techni- cal solutions and capture the many layers of benefi t that unmanned systems deliv- er," Inside Unmanned Systems Publisher Richard Fischer said. Appearing in the October/November 2017 issue the story described the many uses of UAS in aiding fi rst responders and emergency management personnel, re- pairing damaged cellular communications and power grids, helping protect damaged industrial and residential property, and speeding insurance decisions. "Being selected as the 2018 Stephen Barr Award recipient is such an honor— and was a complete surprise," Knight said. "Hurricane Harvey marked the fi rst time drones were used on a large scale during a disaster response and is a great example of what this technology is capable of. The way the drone industry came together to help was remarkable, and I'm thankful I had the opportunity to showcase the criti- cal role UAS played in so many diff erent areas."
