UNMANNED AERIAL VEHICLE [UAV] SERVICES
Unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) are a cost effective and efficient way to obtain high quality data in a relatively short period of time. We are capable of surveying 0.26km2 per flight with sub-centimeter precision when using ground control points.
Data collected can be used to generate colored 3D points clouds, surface meshes, digital elevation and terrain models, contour mapping and high resolution geo-referenced orthomosaic mapping.
Our UAV is capable of completing surveys in a fraction of the time when compared to traditional GPS surveys. In addition to being faster, exponentially more data can be collected.
Manufactured by Inifinite Jib in Ontario, the Surveyor 630 UAV is capable of flying 72km/hr at a maximum height of just shy of 6kms (typical flights are actual completed at a height of 100m), with a payload of up to 4kg. With 6 electric motors, the Surveyor is stable and capable of working in a variety of conditions, including winds up tp 80km/hr.
The payloads are attached to the UAV via a gimbal which maintains a level aspect throughout the flight through the use of gyroscopes and accelerometers. Payloads can vary but typically range from digital cameras to video cameras, LIDAR survey and thermal imaging cameras. The gimbal can be remotely operated allowing for different camera angles.
The Surveyor 630 is equipped with three cameras that are radio linked to a display located on the ground, making real time inspections and investigations possible. The Surveyor 630 has a flight time of approximately 20 minutes and is capable of completing a high resolution survey approximately 650 metres long by 400 metres wide during a single flight.
