Osprey Assessments, in conjunction with the GIS and Remote Sensing Center for Aerial Unmanned Systems Imaging at Indiana University - Purdue University Indianapolis, participated in the annual INDOT full-scale disaster response exercise on September 21st near North Vernon, Indiana. The exercise mirrored a realistic disaster setting and this year’s theme was earthquakes. INDOT performed simulated road and bridge assessments as if there had been a 7.0 earthquake. Osprey Assessments participated by providing sUAS (drone) based aerial imaging of inaccessible portions of a bridge over the Muscatatuck River in coordination with Level 1 & 2 bridge inspectors.
Using our 30x zoom capable HD Video Camera we are able to zoom into the "nut and bolt" level from a stand off distance. Here is a quick video of some of the images captured.
