Thermal images captured by a small drone allowed archaeologists to peer under the surface of the New Mexican desert floor, revealing never-before-seen structures in an ancient Native American settlement.

The FAA granted PrecisionHawk, through its membership with The Center for Robot-Assisted Search and Rescue, an emergency certificate of authorization (COA) to aid response teams on the ground following the devastating mudslide in Oso, Washington.

While on-site, the PrecisionHawk UAVs and two company representatives were at the disposal of ground team officials. The UAV was tasked to bring a high-resolution visual camera that could collect data detailing terrain imaging and provide 3D modeling of the site.

I've extended an invitation (see the comments) to this group to explore what needs to be discussed regarding the regulatory frameworks that seek to govern the deployment of drones in built environments - My first video off of DJI's new Phantom 2 Vision Plus

The number of civilian applications for UAVs continues to amaze us! This week we're talking Livestock. Hear it straight from PrecisionHawk COO Patrick Lohman as he dives into applications for the animal kingdom.

“Some of the primary applications are being able to monitor where the livestock are on open range, using a thermal sensor you can detect the temperature of animals and DNRs (departments of natural resources) can use it to identify sick wild animals as well. For livestock insurance, it’s a good way to document what’s happening.” - Patrick Lohman

I also use them quite often in my rural real estate appraisal business.

Good points and I agree..... Below 700 ft is below the national air space and not subject to the same rules or laws specific to manned aircraft which is what the FAA is trying to use...... Same thing as trying to apply Telegraph law to the Internet.... Good analogy!

Crowd Sourcing Input for UAS Applications in Hurricane Response.  I'll be presenting at the National Hurricane Conference on the subject.  I'll probably start with an intro to UAS (for the unaware) and move onto applications route recon, damage assessment, SAR.  Feel free to hit me up with suggestions, pics/vids and links.

Hi Robert,
You can find plenty to reuse or reference on dronespeak.com, for example the menus under Uses (Applications), Videos, DroneSpeak, Articles, and DIY. Feel free to use the Contact form if I can otherwise help with your searches.
Cheers,
