LEXINGTON PARK, Md. – AVIAN LLC was recently awarded a contract to provide unmanned aerial system (UAS) transportation management support to the Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT).
According to its website, CDOT exists to ensure that Colorado has a safe and efficient highway system by building and maintaining interstates, U.S. highways and state highways.
AVIAN will conduct UAS operations using its Pulse Aerospace Vapor 55 unmanned air vehicle and a variety of other sensors to deliver photogrammetry; electro-optical and infrared imagery (EO/IR); light detection and ranging (LiDAR); and other sensor support. AVIAN operators will fly the Vapor in various configurations to allow CDOT representatives to gather data on traffic and geohazards.
