    About Us

    Established in 2015, Zephyr UAS, Inc. (ZUI) provides engineering, construction management, aerial mapping, and inspection solutions for rail projects nationwide.  ZUI’s staff is a highly qualified team of engineering professionals who have extensive experience in design and construction management for various types of rail clients, including Class 1 railroads, commuter rail, and light rail transit agencies.  The firm's areas of expertise range from feasibility studies, requiring conceptual design and analysis, to final design including PS&Es and construction management. 

    ZUI’s founders have a combined 75 years of experience in the railroad industry.  They created ZUI as a small, privately held company that can provide clients with innovative, efficient, and cost-effective solutions for the most challenging projects, always with safety as the number one priority.

    As a result, ZUI augments its design, construction management, and inspection services with the use of a state-of-the-art fleet of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs, also known as drones) to produce high-resolution data collection.  These UAVs allow ZUI to provide aerial imaging and orthorectified photography to support the development of survey-grade mapping and digital terrain models. ZUI’s equipment can also collect full color-rich, infrared, near infrared, or multispectral imaging to aid engineers and scientist with monitoring and/or identification needs. Furthermore, ZUI’s UAVs can produce cinematic-quality video and photography for construction monitoring or site condition surveys. All ZUI pilots are licensed specifically for small unmanned aerial vehicles (sUAVs) under FAA Part 107.

    ZUI is a certified DBE/SBE/MBE company.

    Mission: To be a premier source of engineering, construction management, and aerial solutions for our clients by consistently innovating and producing high quality, cost effective, and accurate products for the railroad industry.
