Unmanned Aerial Systems Operations Around Vertical Communications Infrastructure

Unmanned Aerial Systems Operations Around Vertical Communications Infrastructure

Posted By: National Association of Tower Erectors.

This document represents the National Association of Tower Erectors’ (NATE) efforts to create guidelines for operating small Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS) around vertical communications infrastructure. UAS hold significant promise with their ability to enhance worker safety, reduce fatigue and increase productivity, while facilitating such important work as tower inspections and pre-climb hazard assessments. However, like any new technology, operational considerations must be addressed to escort UAS into the current value stream seamlessly and safely. In doing so, the benefits will be recognized by all constituents at multiple locations along the current operational path.
