Happy New Year! Drones v Fireworks

By |2020-01-03T11:54:00+00:00January 3rd, 2020|Categories: General|Tags: , , , , , , , |0 Comments

As well as the popping champagne corks, the explosions of fireworks form the soundtrack to ringing in the new year.  However, if you were watching the skies in some parts of the world as we entered 2020, you might have seen drone swarms taking their place in creating spectacular aerial displays. Take a look at what Shanghai created to welcome in the New Year. China, having given fireworks to [...]

Drone Building Surveys

By |2019-11-08T14:34:29+00:00November 11th, 2019|Categories: Inspections & Surveys|Tags: , , , , , |0 Comments

Despite the fact that drones have a huge amount to offer the construction industry, it's an area that has been slow to develop. However, the use of UAVs when it comes to all sorts of building projects is finally beginning to increase and construction firms are realising the benefits of having a camera in the sky. In the USA, where we tend to look for previews of what's to come to us here [...]

Drones and Warehouse Efficiency

By |2019-10-04T10:50:25+01:00October 4th, 2019|Categories: General|Tags: , , , , , , , |0 Comments

With drones continuing to make inroads into many commercial areas, warehouse management is one that is tailor-made to benefit from the automation potential that UAVs have to offer. Warehouses still require a great deal of human input when it comes to picking and packing goods. However, drones can take some of the strain when it comes to inventory management - one of the more time consuming areas of running a warehouse business.  Drones [...]

Flying Drones and Sharing the Air with Military Aircraft

By |2019-09-24T15:52:22+01:00October 1st, 2019|Categories: General|Tags: , , , , , , |0 Comments

As drones become more widely used, more focus is applied as to how they can safely share the airspace with other users.  Traditional manned aircraft operate above the 400 foot ceiling for legal drone operation however, the military often fly below this altitude as part of their essential training exercises. Military training exercises are not limited by geography or timetables as they can occur anywhere across the UK throughout the day [...]

Drone Thermal Imagery and Solar Panels

By |2019-09-12T15:23:39+01:00September 13th, 2019|Categories: Thermal Imaging|Tags: , , , , , |0 Comments

Drones are becoming an increasing part of people's lives, both for leisure and commercial purposes.  Aerial cinematography is widely used in all manner of TV and film productions and the power of aerial photography for inspection purposes is being leveraged in many industry areas.  The field of drone thermal imaging is probably less well known but that doesn't mean that it has any less benefit to offer. One area where thermal imaging can [...]

Underwater Drones

By |2019-09-12T15:23:21+01:00September 12th, 2019|Categories: Marine|Tags: , , , , |0 Comments

While aerial drones are fast becoming commonplace, underwater drones or ROVs have been slower to make their way into mainstream consumer technology.  Both offer the opportunity to explore new areas and gain a fresh perspective on the world around us, with marine drones having the advantage of being free from much of the legislation that aerial drone pilots have to navigate. The vast majority of underwater drones operate tethered to a buoy or [...]

Altitude Angel Take Steps to Improve Drone Safety

By |2019-09-12T15:21:10+01:00September 10th, 2019|Categories: General|Tags: , , , , , , |0 Comments

Altitude Angel is the world's leading unmanned traffic management (UTM) provider and has taken steps to improve safety in the skies for all users by introducing a 'just culture' reporting system for drone operators and pilots. With the aim of catching up to the reporting standards already in place for the manned aviation industry, which is based on the principle of just culture.  This is not a no-blame scenario but it does recognise [...]

Drones and Construction – Perfect Partners

By |2019-09-06T11:37:50+01:00September 9th, 2019|Categories: Inspections & Surveys|Tags: , , , , , |0 Comments

The construction industry has already begun to use drones to assist efficiency in many areas such as tracking site progress and monitoring safety standards where substantial cost savings can be achieved over traditional methods. Even before a project is begun, drones can play a part in providing accurate 2D and 3D maps of the environment that allow architects and project managers to develop plans that maximise opportunities and minimise problems from the very [...]

Drones and Precision Agriculture

By |2019-09-06T10:35:04+01:00September 8th, 2019|Categories: Agriculture|Tags: , , , , |0 Comments

While many industries are still exploring the way that they can harness the power of the UAV to boost efficiency, agriculture has already made headway into using drones to boost efficiency and move towards precision agriculture in an effort to gain the maximum output from their fields. While farming is often thought of as relying heavily on tradition, it's an area that has been remarkably quick to embrace the benefits that new technology [...]

How Drones can Assist in Search and Rescue

By |2019-09-06T11:22:21+01:00September 7th, 2019|Categories: General|Tags: , , , , |0 Comments

Search and rescue teams in many areas - from coastguard to mountain rescue - have been investigating how drones can help them in their life saving work over the last few years. Having an aerial perspective on an emergency situation provides some very obvious benefits in terms of allowing fast searching over large areas that could have potentially difficult terrain to traverse on foot - exactly the type of terrain that search and [...]
