Research Question

Can the Intel Falcon 8+ UAS provide Reclamation with a better tool with which to conduct bridge, canal, and other infrastructure inspections and documentation.

Need and Benefit

We have the opportunity during the summer of 2018 to evaluate, at no cost to Reclamation, a UAS with features very beneficial to Reclamation (and other DOI agencies) for engineering and inspection purposes, and high-resolution imagery and geospatial data production.
