EPA Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) Program and Policy Development
As with any new technology, guidance, standards, and processes for UAS data collection practices are evolving while EPA works toward operationalizing the use of UAS at the agency. The goal of the EPA UAS program is to create a framework through which EPA Regions, Program offices and grant recipients can take advantage of UAS technology to protect human health and the environment. This technology will allow EPA to meet its mission goals with additional data collection capabilities while increasing safety, reducing costs and increasing efficiency.
Corona personnel have supported the EPA in the development of the policy through a collaborative effort with EPA Regions, Programs and subject matter experts. Our team has worked together with EPA personnel to develop the policy, respond to comments, update and edit the draft, and finalize content. Our team has also been responsible for the development of the EPA UAS website (internal only) while also creating related materials such as a UAS Handbook, fact sheet and briefings. Our team also assists EPA in overseeing and conducting UAS CoP meetings on a regular basis.
