Advantages over "traditional” means

  • Quick/Easy/Safe/Less Expensive
    • 2 day turnaround
    • Single person crew in lieu of two persons-easy to schedule
    • Difficult to reach places—not an issue with a UAS!
    • Unsafe areas - UAS’s offer safe access
    • Less Personnel = Less Expensive!
