Fiscal Year 2016: Conducted applied research in commercial remote sensing and spatial information technologies for application to national transportation infrastructure development and construction. The Program investigated, developed and validated new applications and provided products to monitor and assess infrastructure condition of bridges, pavements and other transportation infrastructure. In addition, the Program developed remote sensing applications to optimize freight movements in urban areas and in and around ports. Spatial information technologies, such as GIS and GPS systems, were deployed to assist in these research investigations. Fiscal Year 2017: Conduct applied research in commercial remote sensing and spatial information technologies for application to national transportation infrastructure development and construction. The Program will investigate, develop and validate new applications and provide products to monitor and assess infrastructure condition of bridges, pavements and other transportation infrastructure.
