STIM300 is a tactical grade Inertial Measurement Unit, IMU, for demanding guidance and navigation applications. • When size, performance and robustness matter 1:1 scale TACTICAL GRADE IMU Matt Wallace, who was the pilot in command on the ground for PrecisionHawk, also spent time flying missions in Fort Bend County, where he worked with Murphy and CRASAR. They flew the Lancaster UAS to perform levee assessments, looking for which levees had already broken and which ones had the poten- tial to break. They were able to fly most of the levees in just a few days. The Lancaster also was deployed in various neighborhoods to document flooding for insurance claims. Once the information was collected, it was sent back to the base where the team uploaded the data to PrecisionMapper. Within minutes after processing, it was sent on to FEMA and the county. This was a very coordinated effort, Wallace said, with the various organizations involved working closely with the FAA and emergency operations centers to ensure UAS were safely integrated into the airspace. With UAS collecting aerial imagery, emergency officials were able to use their manned resources for other tasks, Wallace said—which is a huge benefit during a disaster situation. The Lancaster drone from PrecisionHawk provided this imagery after Hurricane Harvey.
