We provide asset owners with a quick, safe and cost-effective way to visually assess the condition of their elevated assets.
We have extensive experience gained from inspecting over 2000 structures including schools, train stations, office buildings, bridges, lighting towers, flare stacks, pipelines, warehouses and factories.
We output visual and/or thermal imagery, geo-located and organised ready for your engineers to assess and action.
If required we can also model your asset in 3D to measure damage and optimise your maintenance tendering and supervision.
Accurate and timely spatial data helps you plan, run and reconcile your operations and projects.
Our drones can be gathering visual, thermal, survey and vegetation data from above with no impact on your activities below.
We can measure and report stockpile or landfill volumes, generally with a 24 hour turnaround to enable quicker reporting of your inventories.
We can map development and construction sites, using visual, vegetation and thermal sensors. This data can be integrated with ground surveys to provide highly detailed DSMs and ortho-rectified imagery.
Drones are particularly useful for gathering data in areas that are hazardous or are environmentally sensitive.
Agriculture research trials can be analysed during the growing season to provide unbiased plant health data for analysis and marketing.
Vineyards, horticulture and forestry plots can be mapped for plant health and plant counts, to optimise inputs and plan selective harvesting.
Our thermal imaging can be used for mapping, environmental monitoring, search and rescue, and electrical and solar panel inspections.
Our drones can be used for water sampling and gas monitoring for scientific research and environmental monitoring.
Our larger drones are slung-load capable, and can be used for installing equipment and stringing power/communications lines in otherwise inaccessible locations.
We can also bring in equipment as required, such as power tethers for continuous surveillance.
We’re always happy to develop new applications, so if you have an idea you want to explore, please get in touch for a confidential discussion.
Legal and safety
We’re results oriented, but the safety of your people, assets and reputation will always come first in our operations.
