Zephyr UAS, Inc. (ZUI) uses a state-of-the-art fleet of UAVs (unmanned aerial vehicles), which along with software and hardware, provide our clients with a complete UAS (unmanned aerial system).  Our UAS is the perfect alternative to manned aircraft because​ it is:

  • Safer - By using UAVs, we eliminate the need for manned aircraft in the sky. We also avoid utilizing manned crews on the ground, thus minimizing the need to work near potentially dangerous areas such as highways or railroads.
  • Faster - Our UAVs produce results at least twice as fast as conventional mapping.
  • More economical - Using our fleet of UAVs is much less expensive than hiring manned aircraft to perform similar work.
  • More accurate - Our UAS produces more accurate results because we are able to fly our vehicles at lower altitudes.  Therefore, our data has shown better absolute and relative accuracy.
    • ​Absolute accuracy - where the data point is in space
    • Relative accuracy - where the data point is in relation to other data points
  • More environmentally friendly - Our UAVs operates on batteries, not fossil fuel, so we reduce our carbon footprint.

Zephyr UAS, Inc. (ZUI) was established in 2015 in Orange County, California.  We are a small, family-owned company who aims to provide efficient and cost effective aerial mapping and inspection solutions to meet the most aggressive schedule or budget constraints.  

ZUI utilizes a fleet of UAVs for a variety of applications in mapping, inspection, construction monitoring, pre-condition surveying, and aerial photography.

​ZUI's founders are professional civil engineers who have a combined experience of over 100 years in the railroad design industry.  Our founders created ZUI because they identified a strong need to innovate in the civil engineering industry, where clients continue to demand high quality work while cutting budgets and tightening schedules.  ZUI's founders believe using this sophisticated unmanned aerial system on projects will accelerate schedules and alleviate budget pressures while maintaining superior quality and safety standards.

Hire us for your next project and reap the benefits of our safe, innovative, and cost-effective system!



Zephyr UAS pilots are licensed under FAA Part 107.

All of our pilots are certified specifically for small unmanned aerial vehicles (sUAVs).  This means we are approved by the FAA for a variety of UAV commercial applications and can work on your project today!
