Some of Heliguy's Clients Who Are Benefiting From Drones
"We were looking for a missing teenager. Officers on the ground couldn't see her. But the drone, with a thermal camera, detected her. Without the drone, she would have been found dead in the morning. Reliability and results are outstanding."
From finding missing people to mapping construction sites, drones can be used for a variety of key missions.
Drones provide enterprise customers with a range of benefits, including quicker data capture, enhanced health and safety, improved efficiency and highly-accurate results. Smart features such as RTK capabilities, thermal imaging and high-tech camera compatibility, these drones are fast becoming vital and go-tool tools for a host of industries.
Below is a list of just some of the verticals which are reaping the rewards of adding professional drones to their everyday operations:
Planning and design
Construction and Mining
Inspect your fields
Use your inputs wisely
Minimise soil erosion
Validate insurance claims
Search and rescue
"Drones are used to survey the railway for regular maintenance or following an incident. Drones are a cost effective solution for close-up inspections of difficult to access structures such as building roofs, bridges, communication masts and overhead wires. As we're not sending engineers onto tracks, it also improves safety."
The M600 drone is designed for use by professional filmmakers and photographers. It is built to take professional quality aerial photos and video, as well as fulfilling a range of other commercial applications.
DJI's most compact and accurate low altitude mapping solution. This next-generation drone provides real-time, centimetre-level positioning data for improved accuracy on image metadata and has a high-spec camera.
The Inspire 2 has been described as a workhorse by leading filmmakers. With built-in image processing and advanced obstacle avoidance, and compatible with top-class cameras including the X7, it is ideal for high-level shots.
"Our Mavic drones are invaluable tools for our mountain rescue. I would say that using a drone makes it 50% quicker than traditional methods to do a search. It widens the search area for us, allowing us to get an overview of the area – how big it is and inspect areas of concern - and means that we get this information a lot safer."
From London Fire Brigade to Balfour Beatty, major companies and organizations are harnessing the power of drones.
To showcase the power of professional drones and to highlight how they are being used in the real world, here are some case studies focusing on how UAVs are transforming the landscape.
Balfour Beatty has used drones, including the DJI Phantom 4 RTK, on a major M6 Smart Motorway upgrade in The Midlands - saving time, increasing safety and providing greater awareness.
Balfour Beatty can use the drone to fly over the site and digitise the area quicker than traditional onsite methods, meaning faster data collection and increased efficiency.
Balfour Beatty has found that drones help take people away from potentially dangerous situations and can access hard-to-reach places. They also provide a bird’s-eye view of a site, giving a full snapshot of the area, helping monitor progress and identify problems.
Craig Matthews, of Balfour Beatty, said: "It would take a surveyor, using traditional handheld equipment, about a day to measure the stockpiles and process the data. But the drone can fly over the compound in 15 minutes and process the model in about two hours.”
Lincolnshire Police has used its drones on more than 300 jobs, from finding missing people to analysing crash scenes and surveillance.
One of its most high-profile cases was the drone unit's first successful prosecution after a man was jailed for three years for producing cannabis.
Following a scouting mission, and as a result of evidence captured by the drone, a cannabis farm was found in the culprit's house.
Special Sergeant Kevin Taylor said: "We turned up and flew the drone 400ft across an open field, before hovering 50m from the property. The heat source was obvious and we scrolled through our different filters to highlight the heat in a number of different spectrums. The filming from the drone took one minute and 20 seconds, and it was only in the air for five minutes from start to finish. It was an incredibly useful resource."
"By providing an aerial view of an incident drones help Incident Commanders develop tactics to help tackle it. Drones may also be able to access areas which are unsafe for firefighters. Overall, they improve safety for our crews, and help improve our response to incidents."
"The Inspire 2 is a refined workhorse with little need for physical improvements. The speed of the Inspire 2 also came in handy when we were filming a fast-moving 4×4. I was able to do more than keep up, I could actually overtake, which added an extra dimension to the shots available to my director."
A team of researchers have used drones, including a DJI M600 Pro, to complete the most comprehensive survey of Chernobyl’s Red Forest – one of the most radioactive locations on Earth.
Flying a range of multi-rotor and fixed-wing aircraft, the scientists from the National Centre for Nuclear Robotics (NCNR) created 3D maps which not only provided up-to-date information on the sites with the greatest contamination, but also revealed previously undetected radiation hotspots.
Some areas are still strictly out of bounds to humans, so using drones allowed scientists to investigate hazardous places from a safe distance. UAVs also helped the team cover large areas quickly.
Dr Kieran Wood, from the University of Bristol, said: "Detecting the hotpots was a good demonstration of what can be achieved with drones rather than manned aerial surveys, or ground surveys."
"Drones are changing the way we study volcanoes and have enormous potential for monitoring volcanic hazards. Many of these areas are too dangerous to reach on foot, so drones help to get close enough for direct measurements."
