On Tuesday, May 21, the Fairfax County Board of Supervisors voted unanimously to approve a Public Safety small UAS program in Fairfax County, Virginia.
The approval comes after two years of work by a county UAS Work Group, which was formed in May 2017, and a UAS Task Force, which was created in fall 2018.
Through the program, UAS will be used to deliver relevant high-quality imagery, data and customized geospatial solutions. This will provide several entities including the Office of Emergency Management, Fire and Rescue, Police and Sheriff with an “enhanced level of operational capability, safety and situational awareness.”
Wind turbine company Vestas has selected Sulzer Schmid, a Swiss UAS technology company for rotor blade inspections, and WKA, a blade inspection and repair service provider, to conduct a large UAS-based blade inspection campaign in Scandinavia on 1,250 wind turbines in less than 12 weeks.
Located across Sweden and Finland, the blades of the 1,250 Vestas turbines must be inspected by the end of June, just in time for the beginning of the repair work season, which traditionally takes place during the less windy summer months.
To meet this tight deadline, Vestas opted for UAS, which is the “only approach that can meet its high-quality standards within such a demanding time-frame,” the companies say.
In an effort to address the last-mile delivery challenges in the urban areas of China, international express delivery service provider DHL Express and autonomous aerial vehicle company EHang have partnered to jointly launch a fully automated and intelligent smart drone delivery service.
The service’s inaugural flight was for a DHL customer, making DHL the first international express company to provide this type of service in China.
