Ecological Management Supervisor
Sacramento-Yolo Mosquito and Vector Control District
Marty is the Ecological Management Supervisor for the Sacramento-Yolo Mosquito and Vector Control District located in Elk Grove, California. Apart from his main duties, Marty has coordinated the creation of the District’s UAS program in an effort to provide additional support to current mosquito control operations. The program consists of routine imagery, spectral imagery and analysis, topographic and spatial modeling, meteorological and atmospherical sampling, and mosquito control spraying utilizing larger UAS spray units. The program utilizes Part 107, as well as a recently approved Public COA for imaging and spray missions in controlled airspace, including night time missions. A strong working relationship with industry and the FAA has been paramount to the success of this program.
