Mark A. Ryan and Kyle M. Ryan, father and son, created Ryan Media Lab in 2013 to produce original online media properties and content that serve local communities. Inspired by the escalation of mobile media use and video consumption, they set out to create a real-world ability to collect aerial content to feed their online media properties.  After four years of research and development, RML launches the ATOM 4000™ (Aerial To Online Media), a media service that safely delivers the American mediums of dronalism and dronevertising ("Patents Pending”.)
