Part of our core business is to provide professional flight services to meet a wide variety of applications. Our flight services department provides civil and scientific customers with the ability to collect data where manned aircraft missions would be too expensive or too dangerous. With the long endurance of our unmanned aerial platforms, we can provide our customers with persistence collection of valuable data.
These are some of the examples where our unmanned platforms can provide excellent services.
Drone America provides comprehensive agricultural analysis through unmanned systems to multiple industry types within farming operations, vineyards, ranchers, livestock nutritionists, veterinarians, feed manufacturers, dairy farmers growers, crop researchers, government agencies and any other agricultural producers.
Wildlife crime is an epidemic and sweeping the planet. Illegal trafficking of wildlife is now one of the world’s largest criminal industries with far reaching effects. These animals are high target species and most difficult to protect, as poachers will go to the most extreme lengths in order to kill them. Coupled with sophisticated EO/IR sensors and mission specific payloads Drone America’s UAS can help protect and conserve the worlds natural heritage from decimation and eventual extinction.
Additional information can also be provided when integrated with EO / IR and Thermal Imaging sensors. Dangerous locations such as canyons, cliffs and mountainous regions can be safely navigated without threat to manned aircraft pilots and at a much lower cost of operation.
Providing real time information and imagery is critical to power restoration following a storm or natural disaster. Having this information allows ground crews to make informed decisions and execute fast, accurate and safe repairs. Drone America’s Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) have interchangeable sensors and payloads that can be used to effectively monitor transmission lines, insulators, transformers and any land encroachment which might affect safe operation of equipment.
One of its many applications is off-shore patrolling of fishing waters. When fitted with a high resolution multi-spectral camera, Drone America’s Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) can help locate and identify potential illegal vessels in territorial waters. The data gathered by the UAS is relayed in real time to the controlling authorities, providing early warning and prompt interception of the potential targets.
Natural or man made disasters create severe challenges for both emergency services and first responders. Areas with no roads and environmental challenges can appear insurmountable yet Drone America’s Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) are capable of providing mapping, terrain data, act as radio relays and provide critical payload delivery.
Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) are only limited by their ability to carry sensors and payloads that have been developed to address mission specific applications. Drone America partners with leading manufacturers that provide state of the art sensors. Through collaborative efforts with research institutions we develop special systems and payloads that meet the needs of our clients.
