Disaster Preparedness and Response using UAS Photo


This research is in direct response to the FAA Reform Act of 2018 directing research into disaster use of UAS. The FAA has identified a need to better integrate UAS into the fabric of disaster response/relief aviation operations and prevent the unwanted incursion of UAS during such operations. Existing government research, sponsored by the Department of the Interior (DOI), is examining UAS use in disaster response, and this research recommends improvements to coordination and operations procedures and practices.
