Please direct these questions to your UAS division or others in your agency who work with unmanned aerial systems.

Please respond to each question below that is applicable to your agency:

• What is the status of research in your state on UAS implementation and how is your agency using UAS?
o Do you have current research projects that are active and you are willing to share?
o If your DOT is not researching UAS, what agencies/entities in your state are implementing UAS?
• What sensors are being used?
• What specific business requirements are they meeting?
