Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) Surveys & Applications

Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) Surveys & Applications

RPS UAV surveys are a cost-effective, safe and reliable option for mapping, aerial photography, aerial inspections, and real time surveillance.

Together with photogrammetric software, we can produce high quality Digital Terrain Models (DTMs), 3D models, point clouds, and ortho-rectified aerial photographs, providing a cost effective and safe alternative to conventional aerial surveying and mapping.

With UAV technology as part of our suite of surveying and mapping services, we provide our clients with greater control and flexibility over their sites to achieve the required accuracies.

UAVs – Safe, efficient, accurate, cost effective.

Advantages include:

No disruption to operations

Fewer issues with access or hazardous terrain

Very minimal take-off and landing areas

Photography and traditional surveying completed on site in a single day

Rapid deployment and flexibility to change flight and data capture

Accurate capture and reproduction of aerial data to show progress and changes over time, as the UAV flight paths are fully automated

Ability to achieve accuracies of sub 50mm in most cases.

Applications include:

Photogrammetric Mapping

Digital Elevation Models (DEM)

Environmental Mapping

Volume Calculations

GIS Data

Agricultural Mapping

Environmental Inspections

Infrastructure Inspections

Custom Mapping.

RPS has a CASA approved UAV Operational Certificate (OC) (No. CASA.UOC.0509) and employs a chief UAV pilot, a chief maintenance controller and numerous experienced pilots across the operation.
