Visually inspecting tall or otherwise difficult to reach structures has traditionally been an expensive exercise requiring cranes, helicopters or rope access work. Using aerial drones you can now get high-resolution, high-quality photos and video of these structures in an economical manner. You can be sure of the results because you have a live video feed of what the drone is seeing and can direct our aerial operators to capture exactly what you need. Capturing imagery from infra-red cameras or data from other sensors are also a possibility: taking air samples or temperature readings for example.
Our drones are able to get into areas that would otherwise be too dangerous for live inspection, e.g. close-up on live flame stacks or in proximity to chemical leaks. Likewise, because of their small scale and quiet operation our drones can operate close to working sites without disruption. They can be used to inspect nearly any structure, both indoors and outdoors, but they are most useful in the inspection of structures that are difficult to reach by traditional means. This can include tall structures, such as flare stacks, elevated pipe trays, and cooling towers. It can include confined spaces in which space is limited for traditional inspections. It can also include structures that are over water such as bridges or the undersides of oil rig platforms. Compared to traditional inspection, the use of UAV is cheaper, faster, and safer than traditional methods. For example, when inspecting flare stacks, traditional inspection is incredibly difficult and time consuming. UAV can inspect the stack in less than an hour, without requiring shutdown, the construction of scaffolding, or sending inspectors into dangerous situations. Finally, the small size and stability of aerial drones makes it possible to conduct internal aerial inspections of sites such as large factories and warehouses, or within other confined locations such as tunnels, mines, or under power lines.
