Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) - Metro District Bridge Inspection Implementation

This project would implement drone inspection to the Metro District Bridge inventory by creating an inspection plan that would identify situations best suited for drone use, what parameters govern drone use in bridge inspection, and how UAS could be integrated into standard inspection operations. This project would also deliver a UAS user/policy manual specific to the Metro District and the Elios drone.
