Unmanned aircraft systems (UAS) – singularly referred to as unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV) or, in military applications, drones – are inherently safer, faster, more versatile, less costly, more environmentally friendly and just plain smarter when compared to the typically utilized fixed-wing aircraft or helicopter-based aerial survey, inspection, photography and video platform. To provide our clients with the high-quality information they need and demand, AAS uses the most technologically advanced unmanned aircraft systems available today.

Unmanned aerial vehicle flights in the United States must be in compliance with FAA standards. Contact AAS to see how your project fits within this process.
