Unmanned Aircraft System (UAS)

EMCS has an unmanned aircraft system (UAS, a.k.a. “drone”) as well as the FAA Part 107 certified drone pilots and the 333 exemptions required in order to fly the UAS commercially. We have performed over 100 flights, with scope ranging from mapping for visualization creation and existing conditions documentation to stockpile quantity determination.

Use of UAS technology can provide valuable aerial photos to demonstrate project impacts, aerial videos of traffic movements to help demonstrate the need for the project, and analyze traffic patterns.
