The University of Alaska Fairbanks unmanned aerial system (UAS) test site is operational and is granted FAA authorization for wildlife flight operations using the Aeryon Scout.
Aeryon Labs is pleased to announce that the Aeryon Scout™ has been selected as the small Unmanned Aerial System (UAS) to perform the wildlife surveys during the University of Alaska Fairbanks (UAF) Pan-Pacific test flight operations which began this week.
The FAA has granted the UAF a Certificate of Authorization (COA) to conduct authorized flights using the Aeryon Scout to collect images and data that will validate how a sUAS can be used to accurately locate, identify and count large animal populations within the University of Alaska Fairbanks Large Animal Research Station (LARS). The data collected will also be used to develop standards for operating in close proximity to airports in all UAF test locations – Alaska, Oregon and Hawaii.
