What is a UAV?
An (Unmanned Aerial Vehicle) or commonly know as a
Multi Rotary with Digital camera
vertical lift off/horizontal flight in all directions; think Helicopter
Fixed Winged UAV
conventional take off, climb to programmed height, will fly to
programmed mission
UAV Operators are:-
 Civil Aviation Authority certified & regulated
 Operators are fully insured
 Have a working knowledge of buildings &
 Experienced Asset Surveyors
Features of a UAV
• Light weight
• Fitted with a HD camera
• Multiple blades provide a stable platform
• Battery powered – no liquid fuels
• Quiet operation – less disruption
• Records video footage and still photography
• Transportable to any site or location
• Fast set up and flying within minutes
Benefits of using a UAV
Improves safety no need to put people in unsafe situations
Reduces costs, no need for costly scaffold or platform machinery
Saves time, in the air in minutes
Able to cover large areas in relatively short time periods or focus on particular areas
Ability to view live video feeds, limit costly shut downs
Engineers and Asset Managers can view in live time
Direct UAV operator to specific areas of interest
Identify defects and abnormalities for instant analysis
Video and stills photography can be stored as files

Engineering & Construction
UAV aerial photography is regularly used
for project progress reporting on
commercial projects.
As the UAV is guided to specific viewpoints
in the sky, engineers and site managers can
monitor and control what the camera is
viewing, enabling them to select the exact
photos or video they wish to capture.
Asset & Plant Inspection
The safety of all employees in any
situation is the most important
consideration. UAV’s can be sent
in to do the dangerous and risky
inspection tasks that would
otherwise have to be done by a
person. This removes the
possibility of someone being
injured or killed in high risk
situations. Such situations may
include, communication towers,
buildings, cooling towers, flare
stacks, dams.
Aerial Inspections
 The advantage of using a UAV, it causes no disruption to
operations, it only requires a few square meters for launch and
retrieval - often working from the perimeter of a customers site.
Due to the precision control and light weight construction of a
UAV it can operate up close to subjects, gaining a better view
without compromising safety or property. The ability to conduct
such highly detailed asset inspections from the air is unique providing a safer, more cost effective and timely outcome for
Facilities that can be assessed by UAV’s
 Cooling towers
 Bridges (from above and below)
 Dams / Water Resources / Pipe Lines / Utilities
 Buildings / Open Spaces / Sports & Recreational sites
 Chemical plants and refineries - (flare stacks)
 Off shore activities (oil & gas platforms and pipelines)
 Mining infrastructure
 Wind turbines
 Weather & communication towers
Environmental Monitoring
The environment is continuously
changing along with its related issues.
UAV’s provide a unique service that will
allow you to monitor and assess the
environment in a cost effective and
simple manner. This is particularly
useful for councils and government
departments that need small areas
complications of engaging full sized
Industrial Roof Inspections
Many factories, warehouses
and industrial sites have
premises with very large
roofs that are either difficult
to access or not safe to walk
on - yet must be regularly
inspected. Engineers and
Asset Managers can view
these areas in live time and
direct the UAV operator to
specific areas of interest.
Thus identifying defects,
abnormalities for instant
Industrial Roof Inspections
Site owners are responsible for the safety of contractors hired to conduct
inspections of their plant and or roofs. If roofs are unsafe to walk on, the only
realistic way to inspect the condition previously was by mobile crane - with
personnel leaning out of crane baskets to try and look at plant, roof materials,
flashing, vents, gutters, chimneys for general deterioration.
UAV inspections offer four major advantages to asset managers and
It is much safer (no personnel need to work at heights)
It's much quicker (what can often take up to a number of days for a crane or
platform to do can often be accomplished in a day using a UAV)
It's more convenient and causes no disruption to site operations
Typically, with less time comes significantly less cost
Thermographic Imaging
Infrared cameras measure the thermal
energy emitted from an object. The
higher the object’s temperature, the
greater the IR radiation emitted. This is
useful in the inspection of roofs &
buildings, power lines, sub stations and
plant & machinery.
With building and roof inspections,
often hot spots mean escaping heat. As
with plant & machinery, hot spots can
potentially lead to a problem. If viewed
earlier enough costly repairs and shut
downs can be averted.
Summarising the benefits of using a UAV
 Improves safety no need to put people in unsafe situations
 Saves time, reduces costs
 Ability to view live video feeds, limit costly shut downs
 Direct the UAV operator to specific areas of interest
 View back videos to identify defects and abnormalities for instant
 Transportable and up and flying within minutes
