In an article released on GeoDataPoint.com this week, Aerial Services’ President & CEO, Mike Tully, was quoted prominently regarding his expert opinion on the future of Unmanned Aerial Systems/Vehicles for remote-sensing applications.
Commenting on a new report titled “The Economic Impact of Unmanned Aircraft Systems Integration in the United States” released by the Association for Unmanned Vehicle Systems International, Mr. Tully explained, among other comments:
“UAS will be disruptive technology to the geospatial profession, especially to existing remote-sensing operations,” Tully said. “UAS will enable much better, less expensive remote sensing of all types. Current business models using manned aircraft and traditional sensors will cease to exist, except perhaps in specialized operations.”
