Track All Drones From Your Phone? New ASTM Standard

UAS Technologies

ASTM International recently announced plans to satisfy growing calls for an identification and tracking system for unmanned aircraft systems (drones) in airspace systems worldwide by developing a standard. The “Remote ID” standard under designation F3411 was developed by the ASTM International unmanned aircraft systems (UAS) committee that hopes to allow the general public and public safety officials to obtain the capability to identify a drone using an assigned ID. A rise in the use of drones and integration into the National Airspace System (NAS) has created safety and security concerns — primarily collisions with traditionally manned commercial and private aircrafts, radio frequency...

Using Drones to Improve Data Collection, Lower Costs, and Increase Safety

UAS Technologies

Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS) describes the collective equipment, software, procedures, and personnel that are centered around the use of Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (aka “UAV” or “drones”) to collect data using a variety of onboard sensors such as high resolution cameras, LiDAR, thermal imaging infrared cameras, etc. Drones have quickly become vital data collection tools for many industries, significantly increasing safety while also improving efficiency, reducing costs, and enhancing the ability to quickly and accurately evaluate site conditions. Some of the applications for UAS technologies include: Structural Investigations: UAS provides a level of documentation that can’t typically be achieved through the...
