BNSF started using drones – technically called unmanned aircraft systems (UAS) – to assist in addressing disruptions to our rail traffic, called service interruptions, in 2015, when heavy rains impacted our tracks around Valley View, Texas. Since then, our capabilities for harnessing drone technology to better serve our customers have only advanced, in large part due to a partnership with the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA).Rail Talk
