Unmanned Aerial Systems / Drones
Unmanned Aerial Systems (UASs), commonly called drones, provide you with a unique viewpoint of our world. Often used to capture high resolution images and/or video, UASs are used for a wide range of applications that include photogrammetry and remote data collection. R&ID provides UASs services and training to students for academic projects. Contact us if you need a UAS for your project.
