Drone Inspection Service

Visual Inspection By Drone

A Drone Inspection Service is exactly what it sounds like: a careful, visual inspection, exhaustive review of every single part of an asset. When we do a visual drone inspection, we collect visual data, then review it in detail. Visual inspections are critical to ensuring the proper maintenance of a company's assets. It's safer and therefore cheaper, to replace a handful of rivets or do repair on equipment than to build a brand new. Visual inspections aren't just about saving money. They're also about saving lives.
Reduce Risk
Inspect hard-to-reach areas without putting your team in danger. When we use drones as a tool for inspections, safety is never sacrificed. Our team is certified in all relevant areas, experienced, and maintains the highest safety standards at all times.

Efficient Inspections
Reduce downtime by conducting inspections at a fraction of the time.

Improve Quality
Fix issues with more visibility and better communication.

The data produced by the drones can be used for many years to accurately assess damage, spot trends, and better understand your equipment.

Do you need to know how much erosion there is on equipment? What is the length of a crack? Where is there evidence of damage? There is a measurable element to everything.

We can arrange for customers to have an assessment of specific damages or have an inspection when unforeseen events occur.

How Does A Drone Inspection Work?

A drone works much like your smartphone camera does. The difference being that drones are equipped with sophisticated sensors that allow us to see things from above. These sensors include cameras, lasers, infrared lights, thermal imaging devices, GPS systems, and even radar. All of this information allows our drone operators to capture images and video footage of objects below. We can zoom in on specific areas of interest and take measurements such as height, width, length, weight, etc.

With our drone inspection system, we can capture and detail information safely and in a cost-effective method of data gathering.
