Changing Responses to Changing Disasters

"The data collected is at a resolution and accuracy that is far superior to what we have had available to us. Some of these areas have not been surveyed since the Civil War era, and the technology being used provides us insights on water depth for our nautical charts, especially in shallow areas that are impossible to chart by more traditional means. These surveys will provide an important baseline and offer long-lasting value to other stakeholders, who will leverage it for a variety of applications."

Why Aircraft?

Aircraft Applications

The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) rules for small unmanned aircraft systems (sUAS), or “drone,”operations are spelled out in Part 107 of the Federal Register. This includes the general operating requirements and the certification of pilots.
We have 12 professionals with certification as a remote pilot with a small UAS rating. They have diverse skills and detailed knowledge of our aerial platforms and the sensors they carry. Currently we work within line-of-sight restrictions, which generally limits us to a radius of about one mile. We expect modification of this restriction and a move to beyond visual line-of-sight (BVLOS) flying at some point over the next few years.
Other restrictions include a maximum flying height of 400 feet above ground, a maximum gross takeoff weight (MGTW) of 55 pounds, and a maximum speed of 100 mph (87 knots).
