From UAV (Unmanned Aerial Vehicle), manned aerial and satellite image acquisition to cutting edge analysis and image processing, we provide our customers with scientific data delivered online in a visual and intuitive format.
Our UAV service goes beyond simply supplying you with imagery data. Our experienced scientists will work closely with you to create a combination of imagery, advanced remote sensing and GIS analysis techniques specific to your project needs. We derive the most useful data from the imagery allowing you to gain a deeper insight into your site.
Fera have been approved by the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) for aerial work.
All our surveys are undertaken by fully qualified UAV pilots. We can provide the quality you need to action the detailed analysis we can provide.
Our UAV is equipped with a twin sensor payload, capturing natural colour and near infrared imagery simultaneously in a single flight. More imagery equals more data and more informed decision making.
Fera's Remote Sensing and GIS team have the skills, knowledge, experience and software to derive the important information contained within remotely sensed imagery specific to your project.
The Fera UAV can capture imagery at a resolution between 2.5cm to 5cm depending on the height at which the UAV is flown.
Using photogrammetry the Fera UAV also derives height data over the surface it is flown which can be turned onto highly accurate 3D mapping. Calculate accurate stockpile volumes for storing aggregate, asphalt, coal, wood, chips or anything else on site.
Crop or tree inspections can be targeted saving time, money and preventing loss when compared to walking a field or woodland. We can scientifically assess operations and the environmental impact on site or the surrounding area.
The final imagery and data are deployed to tailor-made web application hosted by Fera, allowing you to view, interact and interrogate the data over the web on a PC, smartphone or tablet.
Helps ensure the UAV captures all the imagery you need in the most efficient way meaning you receive the best results from your investment.
Compare and monitor your site over time, plan quarry or mine extensions, new build location or pre-development site assessment. Our repeat mission option covers this with pre-programmable flights.
Surface height data allows for creation of detailed 3D models and flythroughs, so your data can be displayed in a different dimension to standard 2D maps providing greater insight.
Our fixed wing UAV is able to fly faster and for a longer period of time than rotary UAVs, dramatically increasing the amount of imagery you receive from a single flight.
Our UAV pilots hold a remote pilot qualification, have public liability insurance and have Permissions for Aerial Work for the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA).
