We apply Model Based Systems Engineering (MBSE) methods to develop requirements for unmanned aircraft systems (UAS) use cases across industries and create new path planning algorithms for one group of use cases with similar requirements. We then develop and validate models to estimate cost versus data quality for the aforementioned group of use cases. We use our models in conjunction with the MBSE process to plan and execute flights beyond visual line of sight (BVLOS) to scan large areas of remote jungle using small UAS.
