PART 2: 3pm-4pm
The presence of small unmanned aerial systems (sUAS) aka drones on jobsites is becoming more common every day. Drones can often compliment or even replace many of the necessary tasks during an assessment of existing or new structures. In some cases, they provide the opportunity to gather information that would have otherwise not been feasible or unsafe to collect through more traditional methods. This presentation will cover the capabilities and limitations of today’s commercially available drone equipment and how you might utilize drones on your next project.
