Unmanned Aircraft Systems’ Remote Sensing Technology Used Against Bark Beetles in National Forests

This paper goes over the growing problem of bark beetles destroying North America’s forests.

It first goes over the life of the beetles and the current methods of fighting them, in order to give the reader ideas on how they can be beat. It then goes over ways that remote sensing from UAS can help and how they would be implemented/mobilized. Later, other uses for the UAS platform are thought of. The last sections give both arguments for the implementation of UAS, and counter arguments. Both are summarized in list form and explained in paragraph form.
