Drones provide a data acquisition platform to fit the niche between what is possible from ground survey and manned aircraft.
Drone, UAV or RPAS? Yes – we are talking about the same thing.
Drone – From military origin. The term is generally used by pop culture or media. Still correct, but informal.
UAV – Unmanned Aerial Vehicle. The term is likley to be phased out due to the implication that it’s not contolled by a person.
RPAS – Remotely Piloted Aircraft System. The most formal term. (may also be referred to as RPA – Remotely Piloted Aircraft)
Drones enable surveys and inspections to reach inaccessible, hazardous and large scale sites in a safe and efficient manner. We can capture anything from industry leading drone LiDAR to Ultra HD imagery, and 4K cinematic video. Our drone / RPAS data acquisition technology is deployed by specialist Spatial Surveyors and supported by a skilled Data Management team. This enables us to process, analyse, and prepare tailored deliverables to service all clients’ requirements.
