CTL Engineering will be highlighting all of the benefits of UAS/Drone Technology as well as safe operations and best practices. You will understand what a UAS (Unmanned Aerial System) is, its technical capabilities and applications within the A/E/C industry. The presentation will cover FAA regulations, accuracy, camera detail, inspecting inaccessible or hazardous areas, flight characteristics and limitations.
1. Safe and Responsible UAS operations- as this technology rises in popularity, so do the regulations. UAS can reduce the fatality rate of workers when accessing difficult and high risk locations as well as other safety hazards. This course will illustrate the value which safe UAS operations can provide.
2. Applications within the A/E/C industry- all of the uses and limitations to add efficiency and reduce costs. UAS’s provide accurate imagery from an aerial perspective to help improve everything on a site, even the social demographics of an area. There are a variety of uses such as aerial photography, Topographic mapping, DTM and DSM modeling, 3D Point Cloud modeling, progress photos, facility assessments, and inspection of infrastructure, parking lots etc., as well as many, many more.
3. Technical capabilities of the UAS, its flight characteristics, limitations etc. Due to the longevity of the imagery and its accuracy, it could still be valuable 50 to 100 years from now.
4. Knowledge of FAA regulations
Following is a video showcasing some of our recent projects and applications when utilizing UAS; https://youtu.be/JrWuD3t5Jjk
