In response to the devastating earthquake of 2015, B&A worked with multiple US and Nepali agencies to assist in mapping nearly 100 kilometers of highways in Nepal. Using both UAV and manned helicopters, multiple highway segments were documented. The data was used to determine, among other things, road integrity, rock-slide zones, and future highway expansion. Due to the tight flight windows and proximity to Mount Everest, scheduling was of most importance. Data was collected during the day, processed overnight, and inspected the following morning. Once approved, the next mission was planned and executed.
