With a mini-UAV (Unmanned Airborne Vehicle) a trace or fully opaque area can be overflown and photographed. The digital images have a ground resolution between 3 and 30cm, depending on the altitude. The position and orientation of each photo are recorded.
Scontech's unique UAV Data Processing services are designed for inspecting hazardous and difficult to access assets and structures.
The benefit of using UAVs for power line inspection work is that they're able to fly into the middle of fields to inspect pylons which are several hundred metres high - where accessibility for cranes is just not possible. Similarly, some of the assets we inspect are in highly forested locations that are too dangerous for full-size helicopters to approach.
We deliver a diverse range of services to many resources companies. Our solutions are seen as an ideal tool for mine surveying because we operate from the perimeter of busy, working pits.
Our services include:
Thermographic imagery processing services are offered to our mining, emergency services and utility clients.
We can identify forest and mine fires which are not visible to naked eye using thermal imagery processing obtained from UAV. Thermal images also generate DTM.
