House Passes Bill Expanding Use of UAS and Location Data in Fight Against Wildfires

On March 12, 2019, President Trump signed senate bill S.47, the Natural Resources Management Act.  It has since become Public Law No 116-9.  In addition to other matters, the law directs the US Department of Interior  to maximize the use of UAS systems for wildland fire management.  The article link below was published before the president signed the bill but provides a good overview of the UAS directive.
