UAV Services

Equipped with a fleet of drones using dual-frequency real-time kinematic GPS, LiDAR sensors, and high-resolution photographic systems, we provide high-quality topographic surveys and videos. Our data processing team use the latest software and cloud-based supercomputers to process the imagery in days rather than weeks. A combination of high-resolution orthographic imagery and high-resolution LiDAR survey data, provides the ultimate definition of the earth’s surface.

Equipped with a fleet of drones using dual-frequency real-time kinematic GPS, LiDAR sensors, and high-resolution photographic systems, we provide high-quality topographic surveys and videos. Our data processing team use the latest software and cloud-based supercomputers to process the imagery in days rather than weeks. A combination of high-resolution orthographic imagery and high-resolution LiDAR survey data, provides the ultimate definition of the earth’s surface.

Best of Both Worlds

While photographic imagery is valuable for many applications the addition of a LiDAR layer provides planners and engineers with a precise definition of the surface. Combining the two technologies gives a complete image of the earths surface.

Photogrammetric Surveys

Multiple missions are flown in two directions to obtain the best possible imagery using calibrated cameras mounted on a UAV equipped with high precision dual-frequency RTK GPS.

Images are then uploaded to our cloud processing supercomputer in Tucson where they are processed and rectified to provide high-resolution ortho images and digital terrain models.

LiDAR Surveys

Lidar provides the best surface definition, penetrating vegetation and jungle to define the surface very precisely.

We use the powerful Nextcore RN100 LiDAR sensor, designed specifically for steep terrain and dense vegetation. It captures up to 1.25 million returns per second. The sensor is mounted beneath a DJI M600 Pro UAV equipped with high precision multi frequency GPS.

Multiple missions are flown and once data is validated it is uploaded to our high-speed computer processing centre. The point cloud or LAS data is then further processed to provide client-specific outputs, including DTMs, point clouds, contour maps, or volume and area measurements.
A preliminary photo survey is done over the area and an initial Digital Terrain Model is generated. It is then uploaded to the M600 Nextcore RN100 to allow terrain following. The UAV consequently flies profiles at 100m above ground level, collecting laser data in strips over the area.

UAV Training for Individuals

We also provide UAV training and certification courses for photogrammetry, LiDAR, radiometric, and other UAV based technologies. Participants are provided with technical compliance training and real-world application of the different technologies. All commercial UAV pilots are required by law to be certified.
