The goal of EXACT is to help UAV end users make informed decisions about the quality and safety commitment of UAV operators and to gauge operators’ commitment to mitigate risk in the performance of their service.

By committing to an EXACT quality and safety assessment, operators like Aero-Photos.ca are able to differentiate their business and achieve a competitive advantage.
