Rail network drone services
Flying alongside rail and network operators to utilise fresh effective methodology throughout the industry.


With thousands of miles of track and hundreds of stations just within the UK, RUAS has enjoyed contributing its expertise to many aspects within the rail industry and its various controlling bodies throughout the entire country.

Thanks to our extensive and safe approach to each operation, we have enjoyed working closely and developing our reputation throughout the UK railway framework for years, having been one of the most consistent operators of unmanned aircraft to provide a range of services.

Working directly for both Network Rail and other railway operators, RUAS has been at the forefront of adapting new methods and technology to the industry in ways that increase safety for workers and create time and cost benefits for all those involved, applying and adapting it to the thousands of miles of railway throughout the country.

With our expert pilots trained not just to maintain safe flight practices alongside operational railway services but with an advanced approach to operating within congested spaces, RUAS has helped provide data capture opportunities ranging from standard station inspections, to orthomosaics and 3D models and even vegetation analysis.

With our permissions and choice of bespoke aircraft outstripping other competitors, RUAS is well suited to meet the needs of our clients in an industry where attention to detail and high-quality capability is a vital necessity to create safe and effective working practices.
