Our Remotely Piloted Air System (RPAS) can be programmed to gather repeat images from the exact previous location in the sky, allowing us to revisit a site to survey progress and change data. No matter what you are looking to survey, be it land, buildings or any other structure, our commercial drone pilots are on hand to provide the remote aerial surveying assistance you need. We can collect photogrammetry data to be able to generate various outputs, such as 3D models, georeferenced, orthomosaics, dense point cloud, digital surface models (DSM) or digital elevation models (DEM) based on the data captured from our aerial survey.
Using drones, we are able to achieve relative accuracies of less than 20mm in both the horizontal and vertical (x and y) axis, getting the data you require with nadir photogrammetry. With the addition of Ground Control Points (GCP) we can achieve accuracies of less than 10mm, and it is up to you whether you install and manage the GCPs or if our team do this for you. You can provide us the front and side overlap required along with the Ground Sampling Distance (GSD) and leave us to plan the rest. To put this into context – typical manned aircraft aerial imagery is around 12.5cm and satellite is 30-50cm resolution; this makes our flexibility and accuracy a major benefit in saving you time and money versus other conventional means.
All of our inspection services are delivered by CAA accredited operators with enhanced Permissions for Commercial Operation (PfCO) and the authority to undertake both day and night time operations using extended visual line of site (EVLOS).
We are stepping into the drone era and there is an undeniable need to upgrade the accuracy of these aerial vehicles. There are many uses for drones and today, we are talking about their implementation in the surveying and house building markets in the United Kingdom.
For years, drone distribution companies have been using UK drones to complete inspections, construction projects, media projects, and more. Leveraging this newfound power in our world that takes to the sky and mitigates danger as well as human error in the process, drone surveying is only increasing in popularity throughout our country today.
