As drone technology improves, applications for its use expand. Drone-based technology significantly impacts our world, with adoption soaring in support of tragic events like natural disasters. By combining drones with high-resolution cameras, one can create 3D maps of disaster sites to provide a clearer image of potential hazards and mitigation options without putting the boots on the ground in harms way.
Natural disasters destroy environments, making it difficult to identify high impact areas in traditional ways. Utilizing drone technology allows for faster data collection and condition assessment. With drones, we can map acres of wildfire damage and collect hundreds of photos to help identify utility pole damage. The collected data can then be uploaded in real time.
An effective disaster response effort begins with a proper situational assessment. Collecting aerial imagery with real-time data processing capabilities provides a comprehensive understanding of the conditions at hand in a safe, timely manner. Our team of experienced field technicians is fully equipped for continuous operations and rapid deployment.
