Angelique served for 23 years as Executive Assistant to the Chief Operating Officer at San Diego State University Research Foundation. On behalf of the COO, she supported and promoted HR, IT, Business Services, Property Development, Facilities Management and Community Relations, as well as SDSU project directors performing funded research,. Angelique also served as Coordinator for the SDSURF Homeland Security Office and Regional Technology Center, funded by Homeland Security following the 2003 Cedar Fire in San Diego. Emphasis was to identify and promote advanced technologies for inter and intra communication, GIS, etc. between public service agencies. In 2002, Angelique volunteered with the San Diego, California, Trauma Intervention Program (TIP) – an organization consisting of volunteers to provide emotional and practical support to victims at crime, suicide, accident and other traumatic scenes and events. First responders request TIP volunteers to support survivors or family members immediately following a trauma thereby allowing themselves to perform their many responsibilities. A future in search and rescue/recovery began in 2006. Angelique was assisting the family of a missing California mother and sister, Renee Fox, when the family requested Angelique provide logistical support to Gene Robinson and Texas EquuSearch for a missing person’s search in the Sierra Nevada, California, basin. It was during this search Angelique witnessed the small unmanned aerial system, the Spectra Flying Wing, in action and reviewed the data it provided. With an appreciation for research and technology, and raised in a law-enforcement family, Angelique was stunned by the fact that this UAS technology was not being used in academia or in local or state public service agencies. In 2006, there was one lone man from Texas utilizing UAS technology for good work – for search and rescue. During the following ten years, Angelique lived each battle fought by the man from Texas as he pushed for approval of legitimate and positive use of UAS in the U.S. Angelique not only saw her first drone in action in 2006, she met her future husband, Gene Robinson.
