Description

This request for information ("RFI") is issued by the State of Oregon, acting by and through the Department of Transportation ("Agency") to solicit information regarding various aspects of Unmanned Aircraft Systems ("UAS") Management Applications and Consultation. The Oregon Department of Transportation utilizes UAS in many of its daily tasks. Since 2015, ODOT's UAS Program has grown to 18 pilots and 14 airframes and there is a need to create a system to track pilots, missions, and maintenance. ODOT is searching for an application or system which allows users and pilots to track mission critical items while allowing the UAS Program Manager to monitor system and execute flight approvals through multiple authority levels. In addition to a management application, ODOT has also seen the need for UAS Program consultation to help create ODOT's "Rules of Engagement" and a pilot training program. Please see "Attachments Exist" folder for RFI documents.
