We have recently started to provide Aerial Drone Survey of client’s sites, this is becoming very popular with our current clients.
Fraoch Scotland is fully CAA Licensed (by the Civil Aviation Authority) and fully insured to operate UAVs (Unmanned Aerial Vehicles) in the UK and Worldwide.
We use a DJI Inspire 1 UAV (unmanned aerial vehicle) to conduct our aerial surveys at the beginning of new contracts and at regular intervals thereafter to monitor the site development. The DJI inspire 1 has a 4K MFT Camera with 3-Axis Gimbal, Up to 1.2 Mile Radio Range, GPS-Based Stabilisation System and live monitoring via iPad from pilot remote.
This enables us to gain a live up to date view at the site area, the perimeter and the terrain. This not only allows us to be able to better plan where to locate our cameras and where to set the detection zones, it also has helped us identity and avoid risks for personnel on man guarding sites. This service has also been invaluable to our clients as an aid to site set up and identifying unseen issues.
The drone surveys can also be tailored to the clients requirement from a full aerial picture of a location to roof inspections to reduce the need to install expensive scaffolding. This service also comes complimentary when a JCB Smart Tower is installed on site and additional surveys are carried out througout the build period.
