The key benefits of using Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV’s) for projects include speed, value, safety and versatility. Traditionally patrol techniques require large numbers of foot patrols dedicated solely to patrolling, which proves to be very costly. These techniques are slow, sometimes dangerous and can put patrolling officers in life threatening situations. By using remotely operated Unmanned Aerial Vehicle’s, a thermal bird’s eye view can be established immediately.
This eye in the sky acts as a force multiplier, effectively covering large areas without the need for direct foot patrols. Our UAV makes this process a lot safer, a lot faster and more cost-effective.
Using a UAV allows for regular patrols and more thorough assessments. This makes the UAV alternative a game changer when it comes to security and nightly patrols.
It’s no secret: Unmanned Aerial Vehicles are regarded as the way forward in satellite farming. Small UAVs are replacing lavish manned aircraft and sensors on farming equipment to provide a speedy, accurate view of the farmer’s ground in question. Geo-referenced imagery is a more advanced feature that takes the speculation out of identifying where a attention-needing areas are located in a field.
State-of-the-art camera systems provide thermal and multi-spectral sensing, which allows the UAV to scan an area and identify abnormalities that can’t be seen by the naked eye or by simply viewing the aerial image. Your imagination is going to be the largest limiting factor.
UAV’s have been used to successful complete the following:
v Drainage inspections
v Silo inspections
v Irrigation pivot inspections
v Hail damage inspection for crop insurance claims
v Scare off animals that are eating crops
v Aerial Patrol for hunters on your private land
v Find missing livestock
UAV’S help farmers to do more with less. It helps them to diagnose the problem timeously and react more precisely and more swiftly, potentially saving you thousands of rands.
Inexpensive, prompt response aerial surveying with Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV) delivers spatial data in surroundings for production, asset, heritage management, infrastructure planning and Greenfield exploration.
The UAV’s provide an unchanging platform from which aerial shots can effortlessly be captured. By pushing the images through photogrammetric processing and surveying software, it is able to deliver orthorectified imagery and DEMs in all common CAD and GIS formats.
Aerial photography with an Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) gives you an exhilarating new perspective that historically was very expensive because you required a plane. Likewise, a plane cannot go as low and unhurried as a UAV. This resulted in a significant increase in the quality of Aerial Photography with the arrival of UAV’s.
Low-level aerial photography can provide remarkable 3D views of a construction site, industrial area, land development project or private residences. Live video is used to effortlessly get the shot on the very first attempt.
Search & Rescue
Search and Rescue (SAR) operations include finding and providing assistance to persons who are lost or injured in remote areas. These pursuits, which can consume thousands of man-hours and enormous amounts of money, are often slow due to the large areas and challenging terrain that must be searched. The timeliness of the search is critical; for every 60 minutes that passes, the search radius must be increased by approximately 3 km, with the likelihood of finding and successfully aiding the victim diminishing quickly.
Radio controlled UAV’s combine the long and far flight needs of Search And Rescue with the ability to launch swiftly, search and locate in both day and night conditions with its Infrared competency, and navigate via GPS with minimal pilot input. The stabilized thermal imager is operative at all times of the day and night.
Saving time, and lives, reducing the resources required in SAR scenarios is one of the key benefits. This is achieved by reducing total time spent and number of feet on the ground, while increasing range covered and useful hours any time of the day.
