Confined Space Inspections

Remotely Operated Inspections of Inaccessible Places

Our Elios drone is well-suited for inspections in confined spaces due to its small size, maneuverability, and range of safety features. Its collision-tolerant design and obstacle avoidance sensors allow it to navigate through tight spaces without colliding with objects.

Elios is equipped with a range of cameras and sensors, including high-resolution visual and thermal cameras, which can capture detailed images and data of the confined space. This data can be used to identify potential hazards, such as structural weaknesses or leaks, and to plan maintenance and repairs.

During operation, we view the live video feed from the drone’s camera in real-time, which allows us to monitor the progress of the inspection and make any necessary adjustments to the flight plan. Once the mission is completed,  the data and images captured by the drone are used to create detailed reports which identify any issues that need to be addressed.

Due to its small size and ability to fly autonomously, the Elios drone is a powerful tool for inspections in confined spaces. It can provide detailed images and data of the space, which can be used to identify potential hazards and plan maintenance and repairs, while also increasing the safety and efficiency of the inspection process.

Aerial Survey

Precise Fixed Wing Drone Surveys

Using photogrammetry and aerial LiDAR drone and survey technology, we are able to carry out accurate surveys and produce a comprehensive set of deliverables, backed up by a warranty.

Our fixed wing fleet can fly for longer, allowing our clients to receive actionable data in the shortest time.

We have a versatile fleet of drones which allows us to adapt to any size project.

We can carry full frame imaging sensors up to 42 megapixels.

Aerial Inspection

We use PhaseOne 100MP sensors for superior image quality

Having the highest specification camera allows us to produce the very best image quality.

We also have dual camera drones that can carry out close inspection tasks and thermal imaging at the same time.

Our non invasive mission planning allows us to carry out the inspection task with minimal disruption and with very low HSE risk.


100MP Image Capture

  • Superior image quality from 100MP camera
  • Cell towers, powerline and structural inspection from a safe distance using an 80mm lens
  • Producing the best data deliverables

Thermal imaging using FLIR radiometric cameras with analytics

  • High sensitivity thermography
  • Building, powerline, photovoltaic health checks and analysis
  • Digital Detail Enhancement for superior results

Reality Capture and BIM

Better data in, Better results out

We capture the highest resolution aerial data using a PhaseOne 100MP camera, mounted on a drone.

This allows us to produce accurate three dimensional digital twin models with Bentley ContextCapture.

We combine processed aerial data with ground based laser scans and produce a single model from which various deliverables are produced, including CAD drawings, ortho-facades and 3D solid models.
