SAFE – ACCURATE – EFFICIENT
Translating Visual to Actionable
Combined with our innovative, interactive and analytical software platforms for asset management, our inspections translate acquired visual data sets into actionable and quantifiable information, allowing structured O & M scheduling and planning.
Operating multiple RPAS, integrated with advanced and industry leading payload technologies, we are able to ensure our extensive, innovative and scope specific visual systems are correctly deployed, taking into consideration all factors, environmental, client deliverables and location.
We offer the most extensive range of precision inspection platforms in industry. Our precision inspection fleet consists of manifold 36, 42 and 50mp UAV integrated camera systems, through to industry leading and bespoke 100 megapixel(mp), camera technology.
Integrated into our own customised UAV platforms, via unique, tri-mounted gimbal configurations, our 100mp systems ensure unrivalled inspection camera orientation and image capture, providing an entirely new and unsurpassed level of high definition image acquisition and subsequent post inspection analysis.
The primary and standardised RPAS system utilised by our precision inspection teams however is the ASCTEC Falcon 8 and INTEL Falcon 8 +, light weight and with superb performance and visual orientation parameters, it allows our UAV teams to operate in some of the most challenging environments, across multiple sectors.
Falcon 8/8+ Interchangeable payload optionsInspection package
30x optical zoom camera and FLIR TAU 640 Thermographic dual payload.
12x optical zoom HD live visual recording payload.
Alpha 7r / Alpha 7r2 36 – 42mp - camera payload.
The above payload configurations of the F8/8+ ensure the capture of high definition and accurate data. All of our Falcon 8 systems (8 & 8+) have been 'in house' optimised, with integrated tri-laser measurement systems, providing quantifiable scalability of acquired images to millimetre precision, for ongoing comparative asset analysis.
As a leading operator within the UAV industry, we deploy under one of the most expansive PfCO's issued by the CAA, allowing us to operate in areas otherwise denied to other operators, such as major cities and congested and/or sensitive airspace.

We also deploy, a number of bespoke Tethered Systems, allowing operational deployment in areas previously requiring extensive permissions.
Offering a solid power line to the RPAS for power and an interference proof data link to the ground paired with shielded electronics, allows the RPAS to operate in areas of high frequency interference, completely immune to the effects.
Capable of 180x live magnification on a three-directional stabilised gimbal, this customised system offers extremely smooth data capture in both video and still formats. The tether systems allow for operational ceiling deployment to both 50m and 120m, enabling prolonged flight for maximised utilisation of flight windows.
All onshore precision inspections are fully supported by our fleet of aerial operations support command vehicles.
All aerial operation support vehicles are fully equipped and integrated with extensive charging facilities to ensure maximised flight duration for our UAV systems and comprehensive IT and visual infrastructure for pre mission planning, 'in-flight' and client led mission control and post inspection survey analysis and sign off.
1. IMAGE ACQUISITION 1 of 4
Immediately after take-off, a safe and maximised distance is established between the UAV and the Asset. The pilot in command and payload operator capture the required data set via a predetermined and/or automated flight path. Working either independently or in conjunction with on-site client engineering personnel, our UAV teams ensure complete asset coverage and image acquisition, according to client specifications and work scopes.
2. DATA CAPTURED 2 of 4
Integrated with industry leading and multiple visual payload technologies ranging from 38MP (Mega Pixel) to 100MP (11,608px x 8,708px) and 180 times (x30 optical, x6 digital) optical zoom capabilities, our advanced Remotely Piloted Aircraft Systems (RPAS) ensure all acquired data sets are both precise in visual detail and amalgamated with the necessary telemetry and corresponding GPS information.
3. ON-SITE POST ANALYSIS 3 of 4
The ability to deploy extensive on-site, aerial operations support via our fleet of mission command vehicles, affords our clients the facility to direct the inspection/survey according to their specific requirements. Integrated with multiple charging facilities to maximize flight duration of all UAV platforms and extensive IT support, allowing immediate access to the acquired data set – post survey, ensures all areas of structural concern are addressed prior to client sign off and site departure, eliminating the risk for asset re-visit and associated costs.
4. POST INSPECTION DATA ANALYSIS 4 of 4
Through our innovative suite of data analytical software platforms, all acquired data sets can be hosted on our Texzone portal. Developed to provide a visual and analytical graphic user interface for data, our clients can convert inspections into a powerful asset information and management tool.
Ensuring precise, repeatable inspection data, we provide enhanced, quantifiable and comparative asset analysis, whilst decreasing the risk of exposure to personnel working at height.
We decrease risk, enhance accuracy and drive efficiency.
