Remote Inspections

Remotely Operated Inspections of Inaccessible Places

Remote Inspections

Our Elios drone is well-suited for inspections in confined spaces due to its small size, manoeuvrability, 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 confined space inspections. Elios is perfect for remote inspections as 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.

Reality Capture

Reality Capture

Reality Capture is advanced photogrammetry software designed to seamlessly create 3D models from unordered photographs or laser scans. Its widespread applications include cultural heritage preservation, full-body scanning, gaming, surveying, mapping, visual effects, and virtual reality.

Reality Capture offers unmatched detail in photo-to-point cloud creation and laser scanning, catering to projects of any size. Its precise mapping ensures intelligent survey outputs that are export-ready, eliminating the need for costly rework.

At Angell Surveys 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.

The PhaseOne 100MP system is an exceptional camera. With its full 100MP image resolution and extended 60-minute exposure time, paired with a CMOS sensor boasting low noise and wide dynamic range, the resulting images are nothing short of breathtaking. The lens is specially built to fully complement the 100MP capabilities, ensuring every detail is captured with unparalleled clarity and precision.

Bentley ContextCapture is cutting-edge software that empowers you to create spatially classified and engineering-ready reality meshes at your desired precision and scale, even for vast urban areas. This offers highly accurate and detailed reality meshes for advanced spatial analysis, engineering, and infrastructure planning.

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.

Angell Surveys excels in drone aerial reality capture. Our approach ensures better data input leads to superior outputs, empowering our clients with accurate and detailed information for efficient asset management and infrastructure planning.

LiDAR surveys (Light Detection and Ranging) involve using laser sensors mounted on drones to collect highly detailed and accurate data about the topography, vegetation cover, and infrastructure of a particular area.

LiDAR, short for Light Detection and Ranging, is a remote sensing technique employing swift near-infrared laser pulses to acquire measurements. Subsequently, this data is translated into a 3D model or map, commonly referred to as a point cloud, detailing the features and attributes of the terrain.

During the survey, the laser sensors emit short pulses of light that bounce off the surface below and return to the sensor, allowing the system to calculate the distance between the aircraft and the ground. By scanning the terrain with multiple pulses of light, the system can create a three-dimensional point cloud that accurately represents the features of the landscape.

Aerial LiDAR surveys are used in a variety of industries, including forestry, agriculture, geology, archaeology, and urban planning. They provide valuable information for land management, flood mapping, urban planning, and natural resource management.
