Capabilities: Construction

UAVs extend a range of capabilities throughout the entire construction project lifecycle. From aerial site survey and planning, to agile structural and engineering inspections, to project safety and security monitoring, UAVs lend a whole new point of view.

Project bidding and estimation is aided greatly by the ability to instantly acquire current site imagery, rather than relying on freely-available imagery that is not always up to date.

No Crane Required

Quickly inspect & verify structures previously inaccessible without ladders, cranes, boats, and beyond. Multirotor UAVs can get just about anywhere, including underneath hard-to-reach structures like bridges and gantries.

Capabilities: GIS/Survey & Sensing

GIS, Mapping, and Survey applications can benefit greatly from UAV sensing applications. When equipped with high resolution cameras, our UAVs can capture imagery which can later be geo-referenced and combined to produce extremely detailed views of large swathes of land.

Using software from industry partners, we are then able to transform the captured images into DEM/DSM models, orthomosaics, and contour maps used in a variety of applications.

  • Geo-referenced Aerial Imaging
  • DEM
  • Orthomosaic
  • Topographical Models

2D, 3D, and Beyond

Coupled with industry partners like AgiSoft, we are able to post-process UAV-collected multispectral imagery into a variety of photogrammetric data, including:

  • Digital Elevation Models
  • Sparse and Dense Point Clouds
  • Orthophotos
  • Polygonal Models

We can also export raw imagery and geo-reference points for consumption by any application in a variety of formats.

Capabilities: Life Safety

When it comes to saving lives, any resource that can provide additional information and assistance should be employed. Our UAVs, when equipped with live video links and thermal imagers, can be used by a wide range of life safety organizations (police, fire, search and rescue) to help provide live, on-the-scene feeds to assist in a number of emergency situations.

Firefighters can use our thermal imager-equipped UAVs to detect hotspots in large building fires before they penetrate the roof. Police can look for missing or fleeing persons in the dark of night. SAR teams can use our fixed wing platform for instant aerial survey of wide areas, employing crowd-sourced image analysis to quickly find leads when time matters.

Community Note: If you are a local government, first responder or life safety organization and have an emergency need for UAV deployment in a crisis or emergency, our services are free to you. Similarly, if your department or organization is interested in learning more about UAV applications, drop us a note so we can come by for a demo. We strive to serve our local community and help in any way we can.

The Heat is On

We employ the use of small, uncooled microbolometers (thermal imagers) onboard our UAVs. These small, compact thermal sensors pick up infrared heat signatures, even in perfect darkness. 

Our sensors are sensitive from –20° to 250°C, and can provide both live visual imagery and temperature data.
