The award allows AeroMetric to be contracted directly by the DHS mission, component, or field offices to provide rapid delivery (within 48 hours) of processed imagery and/or LiDAR information in the event of an emergency to support incident management and other DHS goals. Services AeroMetric can provide include, are not limited to emergency response and recovery, law enforcement, environmental, and facilities related missions nationwide to support incident management and homeland security missions throughout DHS.
