As technology continues to improve, so does the capabilities of unmanned aircraft systems (UAS) within the field of engineering and surveying. Remote aircrafts are no longer viewed as a mere pastime for hobbyists, they are now valuable instruments for firms on a global scale. This cutting-edge technology aids in various applications such as emergency response, agricultural monitoring, volumetric data collection, marketing, etc. Quick and safe deployment of airframes enable inspectors to be more versatile than their previous practices. While LiDAR and other technologies serve their purpose, UAS proves to be a fast and efficient alternative to data collection. With this in mind, Michael Baker International is demonstrating an impressive effort in expanding their fleet; currently, there are over fifty certified remote pilots throughout the country. For clients seeking accurate data at an economical price, UAS applications are the best option to date.
