Significant cost savings
Our drone inspection technique means complex assets, difficult to access structures and confined areas can be inspected in a fraction of the time of traditional access methods. Together with the ability to inspect live equipment, this drastically reduces inspection costs.
Improved health and safety
Small, unmanned, battery operated drones reduce the need for people to be placed in potentially dangerous locations, such as at height or in confined spaces. Detailed risk assessments and method statements are prepared before every assignment.
High quality data
Fully qualified inspection engineers are present on every assignment to provide an interim report at the end of each day, prior to a detailed inspection report which is compiled back in our Inspection Centre.
Using our fleet of Phantom 4 RTKs, we are able to acquire high resolution images, as well as, centimeter level positioning in our maps. This imagery is processed using advanced photogrammetry software to generate orthomosaic maps, digital elevation models, 3D Models and panoramic images of a site. This type of imagery is commonly used for site design, health and safety inductions, evacuation plans, tendering information and as-built photography.
Orthomosaic Maps are a powerful tool used in a series of industries, allowing users to gather an accurate representation of land calculating a given distance, area or volume. Orthomosaic Maps consist of a series of individual high resolution, low altitude images stitched together using embedded longitude & latitude coordinates to create one high resolution composite image. These images are adjusted accordingly to account for lens distortion and camera tilt.
3D Map Reconstruction:
Have you ever wanted to create a 3D image of a building or specific area? With drones, this is now easier than ever! In order to properly create a 3D Map using drones you will need an accurate Geographic Information System (GIS). This system is used to capture, store, manipulate, analyze, manage, and present spatial or geographic data. When creating 3D maps the drone will fly autonomously using preprogrammed waypoints set by the pilot. This is imperative as this will cover 80-90% overlap of a given area which would be extremely difficult for a pilot to perform manually.
Consultations & Demonstrations
Flying unmanned aircraft in safety critical, industrial environments – no matter how remote – requires much more than just your FAA part 107 license. Setting up an internal drone division requires industry specific training, detailed knowledge of aviation regulations, equipment maintenance procedures, incident response training and much more.
With over 5 years of experience in the UAV Industry and hundred of flight hours recoreded, multiple industry bodies have turned to Mechanical Testing Inc. to set the standard for industry specific drone training and competency guidelines. Through our drone consultancy business, we bring this unrivalled experience and knowledge base to large operators and organisations looking to build their own drone division.
