Using drones eliminates the risk and allows us to provide data, condition reports and 3D models of all telecoms assets. 

This is ideal for work in the city centre and remote areas that are difficult for ground teams to access.

Oil and Gas Inspections

We assess complete structures for the oil and gas industry.

Drones can access every part of an oil and gas facility to assess its integrity, detect leaks and provide 3D models of structures.

Drone-based inspections can get to hard-to-see places and highlight faults to providers. Drones allow for detailed imagery of even the smallest defects with less potential for human error.

Confined Space Inspections

State-of-the-art drone technology is now being used to perform confined space inspections, such as inside buildings and underground mines. 

Confined space asset inspections are more efficient than manual inspections. 

The data we capture can be turned into a 3D model of any interior space, including areas that are too small or dangerous for humans to enter.

Water Utilities Inspections

Drones asset inspections allow you to monitor and maintain every stage of the water treatment and delivery process. 

High quality imagery, videos and models provide a detailed view of water utilities and water conditions. 

Additionally, drones can be used to detect leaks, plan works and manage ongoing utilities projects.

Benefits of Drone Asset Inspections

Drones are the ideal system for inspecting critical assets and capturing the data your team needs.


Whether you are planning a project, assessing damage or preparing a maintenance schedule, drones deliver several unique benefits:

  • Cost-effective. Drone asset inspections save significant amounts of time, labour and money, without sacrificing on the quality of data.
  • Rapid turnaround. Drones can perform asset inspections in a fraction of the time. Drones only need a few moments to capture data that would take hours to collect by hand.
  • Accuracy. Modern drone platforms deliver millimetre-accuracy. Depending on the application, we can provide data with tight tolerances that is ideal for engineering applications.
  • Improved safety. Drones allow inspectors to keep their feet firmly on the ground. This reduces the risk that comes with working at heights, and it means we can safely inspect assets in remote, dangerous or inaccessible locations.
  • Advanced sensors. In addition to camera, LiDAR and GPS payloads, drones can be equipped with advanced sensors such as thermal imaging and multispectral cameras. These sensors are able to capture data and detect invisible leaks and defects.
  • Ongoing monitoring. The 3D models created during drone asset inspections are ideal for ongoing asset monitoring. This is useful for monitoring deformation, maintenance and general asset management.

Our drone operators offer tailored services that provide detailed information for every project.


Depending on your needs, we can design inspections that provide 3D models, thermal results, images, videos and data that can be transformed into powerful insights. Or, if you work across other industries such as agriculture, our crop spraying drones are a great way to reduce costs and improve yields.
