Protecting Transportation Infrastructure Using Unmanned Aircraft Systems

Trans Alaska pipeline

What we are doing

Our research, funded by the US Department of Transportation, investigates how unmanned aircraft systems could be used to monitor critical pipeline corridors. Its goals are to:

  • Determine best practices for the persistent surveillance of critical pipeline infrastructure
  • Develop a proactive decision system for engineers
