LandBros Aerial Receives UAS Credentials Under Part 107

LandBros Aerial has received credentialing through the National Unmanned Aircraft Systems Credentialing Program (NUASCP), a program developed by the Texas A&M Engineering Extension Service (TEEX) and the Lone Star UAS Center of Excellence and Innovation (LSUASC) at Texas A&M University – Corpus Christi. Based in Baton Rouge, LA, LandBros uses sUAS technology to provide unmanned data collection solutions for refinery, petrochemical and civil infrastructure. Services include industrial testing, 3D modeling, turnaround support, topographic mapping, emergency response and infrastructure inspections. LandBros strives to provide safety, time and cost efficiencies in all operations. “UAS operations can be a low risk activity, but only when completed by a qualified, aviation specific operator,” says Danny Landry, President of LandBros Aerial. “The NUASCP creates a standardized system to assist in validating UAS service providers and ensuring that operators are qualified for operating in high-risk environments.”” Read more >>

TTI Assists in Unmanned Aerial Systems Project

Researchers at The University of Texas at Arlington will lead a collaborative effort to use unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) to inspect highways and railroads remotely and develop guidelines for how to safely complete the task. The Texas A&M Transportation Institute (TTI), along with the Lone Star UAS Center of Excellence & Innovation (LSUASC) at Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi, will provide support to the two-year project which is sponsored by the Texas Department of Transportation. One of the project goals is to determine how to use unmanned aerial vehicles to perform remote sensing and collect high-definition photos while conducting pavement forensics at the U.S. Highway 67 project site in Cleburne and at U.S. Highway 82 near Bell in Fannin County.” Read more >>

Measure raises $15 million to fly drones as a service for other companies

Measure may not be building the ultimate flying camera, or drones that drop burritos at your door. But the Washington D.C.-based startup has raised $15 million in Series B funding to fly drones as a service for other businesses that want to do things like conduct inspections, capture videos, or gather other insights from on high. Measure CEO and cofounder Brandon Torres Declet said, “Over the past 2 years there has been something like $750 million invested into this space. The vast majority went to hardware and software. But flying a drone isn’t intuitive. And getting quality data is difficult. So we focus on giving you ROI, not just selling you hardware or a software license.” Read more >>

Texas UAS test site approved for flights up to 1,200 feet

At the FAA Test Site Technical Interchange Meeting held this week in Corpus Christi, the Lone Star UAS Center of Excellence and Innovation (LSUASC) at Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi, along with the other six federally designated test sites, received a Certificate of Authorization (COA) to fly in Class G airspace, which extends up to 1,200 feet above ground level in many areas. The previous COA capped LSUASC flights at 400 feet. The additional airspace will allow LSUASC to gather more research data on various topics such as coastal erosion, algae growth and wildlife management. Read more >>
