Our RPA service offering complements our existing environmental services capabilities, providing a value-add to existing projects, as well as enabling us to offer stand-alone services in aerial photography and mapping. We utilise a number of DJI RPAs. These small aircraft are deployed vertically, cruise at up to 79 km/h, and collect ultra-high definition video and still photographs, relaying a high definition live video feed back to the controller.
As both scientists and RPA operators, we understand the benefits and applications of aerial imagery and digitation elevation models to inform decision-making, achieve significant time and cost efficiencies, and improve safety in data collection. Our existing clients include managers of natural areas, construction projects and mining operations. Potential applications are somewhat limitless, but include vegetation mapping, weed mapping, fire scar mapping, aerial inspections, volume calculations and water sampling.
