UAV Consulting Group

The interest for the use of Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV) in a civil, commercial environment is increasing exponentially. Currently there are a few methods which are allowing the flights of these systems and the opening of the National Airspace System (NAS) will support even more rapid growth. Several manufacturers are currently poising themselves to accommodate this new market with low cost systems. A wide variety of endurance, size, and payloads (cameras) make aerial surveillance of large areas possible. The potential uses will become virtually unlimited but some of the main areas of interest are: Power line surveillance, livestock monitoring and census, physical security, road patrol, wildfire mapping and pipeline security.
