Free Photogrammetry Tutorial - Application of the Predator unmanned aircraft system (UAS) as an Aerial Photogrammetry Equipment

All we know about the words “Predator armed with Hellfire missiles” are enough to strike fear in the heart of any terrorist seeking refuge in the Afghanistan or Pakistan countryside. Stealthy and surgically accurate, the Predator unmanned aircraft system (UAS) with advanced targeting capabilities is among the most feared weapons in the war against terror can be utilized as a aerial photogrammetry equipment.

Thanks to aggressive adoption by the U.S. military during the last decade, UASs have swarmed the planet, and some experts predict there’s no end in sight. According to the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), approximately 50 companies, universities and government organizations in the United States alone are developing and producing more than 150 unmanned aircraft designs can be utilized as an Aerial Photogrammetry Equipment. They may have wingspans as large as a Boeing 737 or smaller than a radio-controlled model airplane. Until now, the UAS primarily has supported military and national security efforts, but the FAA says that is rapidly changing.
