The project is an assessment exercise. Completion of the assessment, whether the outcome is positive or negative would comprise a successful outcome.


The utility of a drone based approach for each of the activities identified above in “scope” and an assessment of the economics of that utilisation would be the minimum successful output. Identification of new tasks suitable for this technology as well as an identification of associated operational issues are also likely additional outcomes but would be seen as additional to the base success criteria.
