Abstract: This Engineer Research and Development Center (ERDC) Coastal and Hydraulics Laboratory (CHL) Engineering Technical Note (CHETN) details coastal mapping efforts at federal beach project scales utilizing small unmanned aircraft systems (UAS) to measure changes in the sub-aerial beach and dunes in response to extreme storm events. The document summarizes the lessons learned from pilot mapping exercises at Sandbridge Federal Coastal Storm Damage Reduction Project (CSDR), a project at the Sandbridge community within Virginia Beach, VA (Norfolk District [NAO]), carried out during the 2018 hurricane season. The pilot surveys highlight the Concepts of Operations (CONOPs) required for high-resolution/accuracy geospatial data collection at a typical federal beach project scale (5 miles [mi] alongshore) utilizing UAS.
