Flare inspection via drone is much more cost effective and efficient than typical flare inspections. Removing the human from the equation always helps to reduce risk and cost – and where that can be applied to extreme or complex situations, the savings are much more substantial. This is the case with drone flare inspections.

Reducing Cost and Risk with Drone Inspections

Unlike humans, a drone can reach the height of the flare in under a minute. A live video feed allows the inspector to monitor progress in real time and carry out the required inspections without taking a foot off the ground so there’s much less hassle for everyone involved.

Real Time Kinematics (RTK) allow for accurate and precise recording throughout the inspection. The data and information uncovered in the initial inspection can then be used to more effectively plan future shutdowns, further saving money and time while reducing risk and unnecessary downtime.

And as the entire inspection is carried out by a UAV, the risks are minimal. Even so, a complete risk assessment and job analysis is completed prior to each flight to ensure the safety of everyone involved with the job and to ensure the drone flare inspection goes exactly as planned.

What is Drone Mapping?

Drones are revolutionising the aerial mapping industry with their ability to accurately capture a huge amount of data efficiently and with ease. Rather than having to rely on aircraft, UAVs provide a portable, manoeuvrable alternative that is not only cheaper but provides higher resolution photography too. So, how does mapping with drones work? How Drone Mapping Works Drones use a technique called photogrammetry to take measurements from photographs. Throughout the flight – the path of which is pre-programmed to ensure complete coverage of the required area – the drone takes a photograph every few seconds. When all the photos have been taken, the mapping software automatically stitches them all together, creating a complete map of the area. These measurements are highly accurate and so can be reliably transferred to the blueprint of a building, for example. Aerial mapping allows you to survey a specific area or landscape and produce a complex map, from which we can take measurements, calculate volumes and create models for use in architecture, surveying, mining and many other industries. Other Benefits to Drone Mapping In addition to the processing of complex data, mapping with drones has other practical benefits. There is practically no manual labour involved […]

The Future of Commercial UAVs

When commercial UAVs were first invented, there was no foretelling of the massive impact they would have on all the industries they have: real estate, insurance, surveying, architecture, construction, small shipments and mining to name but a few. So what does the future of commercial UAVs have in store? Where Drones Will Have the Biggest Impact It’s expected that commercial UAVs will grow in three main areas: shipments, surveillance and commercial. Shipments Drones are already used to carry small parcels and shipments; Amazon famously announced (pun unintended!) their Prime Air scheme a couple of years ago. It may be out of the ordinary now, but in a few years shipments by drone will be much more common. There are numerous benefits to using drones for shipments, including environmental considerations, efficiency, safety, cost savings and convenience. Commercial UAVs Commercial drones are different from conventional drones because they are used for more than leisure. Commercial UAVs must be lighter, airborne for longer and much better equipped than recreational drones. The entire market of UAVs, and businesses that will use them to provide a variety of services, will grow exponentially over the next 5 years. Surveillance Governments and security agencies are always looking […]
