UAV Advantage Summary

UAV’s substantially reduce the costs, time and safety concerns for planning, inspections, monitoring and other work resulting in a boost in your company’s efficiency and ultimately your productivity. The ability to quickly deploy a UAV system and the ability to fly an entire area quickly make them ideal for many projects where efficiency, safety and that eye-in-the-sky view are so important. The combination of aerial data gathered then analyzed through software produces an array of products which create an invaluable resource.

  • UAVs have the ability to get closer and more safely to equipment and get into more congested spaces than a helicopter
  • Quick and cost-effective option that provides high value
  • Promote safer jobsite practices resulting in improved personal safety
  • Access to otherwise inaccessible areas
  • Frequent inspection intervals are more feasible
  • Increases knowledge and reference material that can provide early detection warnings such as faulty equipment, infrastructure or regulatory deficiencies
  • Provide environmental regulatory compliance resources through visible early detection signs

UAVs provide the ability for companies to act immediately and efficiently, as opposed to using alternative methods that are more time consuming, costly and may not be able to be deployed in a timely manner.
