29 unmanned systems inside ENGINEERING. PRACTICE. POLICY. August/September 2018 A UAS flies over a pipeline in North Dakota. The North Dakota IPP team, lead by the state's Department of Transportation, is focusing research efforts on beyond visual line of sight flights (BVLOS) and flights over people. OTHER APPLICATIONS North Dakota plans to pursue other initiatives the team listed on their IPP application, either through the program or on their own, said Nick Flom, executive director of the Northern Plains UAS Test Site. Linear infrastructure road inspection is one of those projects, a time consuming task that's currently completed on the ground via truck. Another application involves deploying UAS for long- range bridge inspection. If they're not rolled into the IPP program, the North Dakota Department of Transportation will take on these projects at some point in the future.
