WPPT3: Successful Approaches for the Use of Unmanned Aerial Systems by Surface Transportation Agencies

Brief Project Description: Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS) have the potential to revolutionize DOT operations. This project will implement a pilot training program for members of the Vermont Agency of Transportation (VTrans), Vermont Department of Public Safety (VT DPS), Maine Department of Transportation (MaineDOT), Massachusetts Department of Transportation (MassDOT), and the New Hampshire Department of Transportation (NHDOT). The training will aid these agencies in reducing UAS operational liability, maximize the UAS potential uses, enable DOT staff to perform UAS operations at a higher level more resourcefully, and shorten the response time for UAS-developed deliverables.
