Data From Above.

Until recently, the use of Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV), or “Drones,” to give people an elevated “birds-eye” view has only been permitted within special use and restricted airspace, by branches of the Department of Defense and their contractors. However, high demand and the practicality of these Systems has forced the FAA to make provisions for Civil and Public entities to operate “Drones” in National Airspace.

You need aerial imaging to better assess where to focus your energies and resources, but you don’t have the ability or desire to acquire your own UAV equipment, and you don’t want the responsibility of maintaining the required FAA pilot certifications to operate a UAV. We can help you!

This step in airspace cohabitation between unmanned and manned aircraft is a tremendous benefit for non-DoD entities. The use of UAVs offers significant reductions in maintenance/operational costs, and tremendous increases in safety and proficiency previously unobtainable by non-DoD entities.

Whether it be 3D mapping, inspections or area wide assessments, the requirement for inspection personnel to be elevated in some way is apparent. With that requirement also comes the requirement to perform these inspections in a safe, proficient, and legal manner.

With Theiss UAV Solutions Field Teams, the information you need is provided quickly with state-of-the-art equipment flown by FAA certified UAV Operators that have your needs and reputation in mind.

This is a 3D scan of the McKinley Monument in Canton, Ohio. The total scan time was less than 15 minutes. The 3D model was completed by the end of the day.

You have your UAV equipment and you’re ready to start using this new powerful tool, but you just realized that you and your other UAV Operators are not legally certified by the FAA to fly your UAV. Theiss UAV Solutions will train you and your Operators in both the classroom and in the field so that you are prepared to pass the required FAA certification test.

Contrary to popular belief, there is a crucial difference between an R/C pilot and a certified UAV pilot: one is legally able to operate a UAV for commercial use, and the other is not. UAV Pilots may fly similar aircraft as a novice or hobby pilot, but they must have the head knowledge and experience of a manned aircraft pilot as well. UAV Pilots have been instructed in and have passed required written FAA Airman Knowledge tests, in addition to flying many hours in both manned and unmanned aircraft.

Theiss UAV Solutions provides both the “hands-on” flight training and the airman knowledge training necessary for successfully passing the written FAA Airman Knowledge test, to yield a legal, safe, and proficient FAA certified UAV Pilot.

You know that UAVs can significantly improve your business’ day to day operations, but you also know that there are a variety of rulings, regulations, and requirements that must be addressed to successfully (and legally) use these UAVs. If only you had someone experienced in navigating these waters. Theiss UAV is your solution!

With recent FAA rulings on UAV operations, civil entities are now able to leverage this powerful technology to achieve company goals. This includes increased employee safety, reduced inspection timeframes, reduced inspection costs, and overall reductions in equipment maintenance and costs. To take advantage of this technology, it is imperative that these entities become informed and well trained in UAV operations, and educated in the legalities and requirements of the FAA for proper UAV operations within the National Airspace.

Theiss UAV Solutions is able to address a variety of needs that you may encounter in pursuing your own UAV Operations Group. We will work with the FAA to obtain necessary flight permits. We will help you form a UAV Operations Group and identify practical paths for avoiding operational and legal “pitfalls.” We will train your UAV personnel. And we will supply the actual UAV Systems specific to your needs.

Theiss UAV Solutions,  LLC is pleased to offer assistance and consultation services to help first responders, fire and rescue, and law enforcement agencies with funding their UAV needs through FEMA and other available grants, as well as other funding sources. The following information features grant programs that these agencies are eligible to apply for at the state and federal level.
 
Below are the steps that your agency needs to take prior to applying for grants. If your agency is not already registered, you must register for a DUNS Number and register with the Central Contractor Registry. This process may take up to two weeks to complete. This is mandatory when applying for grants at the federal level or through the state level.
 

  1. DUN and Bradstreet Number. To apply for grants you must have a Dun and Bradstreet Number (D&B Number).  Check with your city finance manager to determine if your agency has a D&B number. If unsure, check the Dun and Bradstreet website at www.dunandbradstreet.com or call 1-866-705-5711.
  2. If your agency is not listed in the D&B database, register with DUN and Bradstreet. You will also need to register with the Central Contractor Registry at www.ccr.gov or by calling 1-888-227-2423. Note that you are required to update your CCR information at least once per year to remain in an active status.              
  3. Once steps one and two have been completed, you may apply for grants directly from the federal government register at www.fema.gov/grants and www.grants.gov.
  4. For Law Enforcement Agencies, apply through the Office of Community Oriented Policing Services Grants at http://www.cops.usdoj.gov
  5. We recommend that you maintain your D&B Number, CCR information, fema.gov, and grants.gov passwords in one place so that you can easily retrieve this information when filing for a grant.
