A drone in the air can collect data in a fast and efficient way that greatly benefits projects that could be time sensitive, or that must monitor locations at regular intervals. Launching a drone requires a minimal amount of workers and can help overcome obstacles such as dense vegetation and canopy coverage, or areas that are too dangerous for workers to access.

In the event of a natural disaster, or even a human-made disaster such as an oil spill, a drone can fly in to aid in relief efforts, assess damages, spot victims, carry out surveys, and even monitor weather changes. A drone can be deployed quickly in the event of a disaster to effectively gather data and footage to help workers make more informed decisions in order to save lives, and reduce potential damages.

Equipped with a thermal camera, a drone can easily spot wildlife, spot water leaks, or use optical cameras to create 3D maps and models to plan and monitor work. Today, scientists and researchers are even conducting inspections with drones to map out the path of present or future oil spills to prevent damage to surrounding wildlife and ecosystems. One of the biggest struggles people have had to deal with is being limited in our perspective when it comes to land. Aerial surveying is a delicate art, and it’s difficult to imagine the finished product when it comes to building, or to altering land. Drones can make this entire process that much easier. When seen from the air, a finished product becomes easier to visualize. Problem areas can be quickly identified, and a drone can be used to create 3D maps, and to record GPS coordinates for easy tracking. There’s no need to deploy a team on-site when much of the work can be done from the air. Especially when drones can handle many of the tasks more quickly, thanks to on-board computers and software.

The large drone camera we have is the Zenmuse XT Radiometric Camera mounted on a DJI Matrice 210 RTK.

- Cameras rotate fully in all directions giving excellent coverage.

- The camera on the DJI Zenmuse XT is developed by FLIR.

- It is a 13m, high-sensitivity (50mK) thermal imaging, 640x512 resolution, and is radiometric. - This sensitivity provides accurate temperature measurements ideal for analytics and telemetry.

- Stabilized and controlled by a custom DJI gimbal, it provides smooth, clear imagery and 360 degrees of seamless rotational movement.

- Our camera is the 640x512 resolution camera with 13 mm lens below.

- The Zenmuse Z30 is an integrated aerial zoom camera with 30x optical and 6x digital zoom for a total magnification up to 180x.

- We also have the Zenmuse X4S camera, featuring a 20 megapixel 1-inch sensor and a maximum ISO of 12,800.
