Drones, otherwise known as unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) or (UnscrewedAerial Vehicle), have revolutionized the surveyors’ industry. With their rise in popularity and legislation, manufacturers have created drones for a wide variety of purposes, including utility models for companies that need to inspect or collect aerial images of worksites. Geospatial industry undergoes a revolution every day, from total stations, to GPS, to Laser scanners and the robotics. The combination has resulted to an efficient tool, surveying drones, which boast quick data collection times, excellent positional accuracy and a safe operator experience.
Ground Control Stations (GCS)
Ground Control Stations are the central control unit that allows a UAV to fly and a UAS to operate.
Data Links act as the transmission center that allow the drone to communicate with the ground operator while in flight
New technologies have turned these small unmanned aerial vehicles into vital tools. Rely on us for your Drone Solutions for:
- Drone Mapping
This is the use of UAVs to survey an area of land. A surveyor/ drone Operator flies the drone over an area of land, capturing pictures.
- Agricultural Drones
Drone applications in agriculture range from mapping and surveying to cropdusting and spraying.
- Construction Drones
Advances in technology have made the drone an affordable tool for worksites. Used correctly, drones enable faster, more economical, and higher-resolution surveying without sacrificing on accuracy.
- Media and Filming
This is indeed one of the first known applications of drones. From HD videos, live Wi-Fi streaming, track and fly aiding in extreme sports, there is unlimited use of drones in film and production.
- Inspection Drones
Drones are being put to use for inspection purposes. This can be especially ideal because it eliminates the safety concerns and time commitments involved with putting humans in these areas.
- Search and Rescue
With the help of thermal sensors, drones can locate lost persons. They are also especially useful at night or even in challenging terrains.
