Management of Forests is an extremely complex process and foresters need to use every technological edge they can muster to provide for optimal decision making in day to operations. The application of Drones is not new, both in routine operations as well as fire and disaster management in forestry services around the world.

The use of UAV/Drones in Forestry is a fast growing industry and the application of thermal imaging cameras can also assist in fire prevention and monitoring of high risk areas.

Drone Inspired has established a specialist drone unit which whilst piloted, can be pre-programmed to fly set grid patterns providing optimal analytics for Forestry staff on the ground. It is entirely feasible for a drone to cover up to 100 hectares in an hour of flight, the data collation being comprehensive and programmed to address and/or identify specific conditions.

Drone Inspired will provide a leading edge advantage to Forestry Management, optimal timescales and at a cost efficiency not feasible using labour intensive monitoring practices. The practicality of aircraft, coupled with professional piloting and backroom IT skills will ensure new dynamic applications may be developed in conjunction with Client requirement. Thus the process becomes a form of joint venture in terms of Drone applications in Forestry Services.

As with Forestry applications, the deployment of UAV/Drones in agriculture is a fast growing industry and able to provide farmers with critical feedback on field conditions, stock control, seep line, geo mapping to mention but a few points.

Drone application in farming offers the farmer an entirely new range of skills at his fingertips, cost effective and time efficient, myriad routine operations can now be handled in a semi-automated application.

Obvious areas of primary application would include:

  • Soil testing
  • Geo mapping of the farm and survey plots (3D) of optimal dam sites, road infrastructure etc.
  • Application of insecticides, fertilisers (the drone operates like a highly efficient crop duster.
  • Establishment of biomass, perimeter monitoring for possible ingress
  • Stock control and anti-poaching initiatives.

The advanced analytics will provide a historic data base for the property, allowing optimal planning of current and future farming operations and establishment of maximum yields.

The application of drone aircraft in anti-poaching activities is well published and is but one of the numerous drone applications that can be introduced into the field

By very definition, wildlife is found often in extremely harsh and inaccessible conditions and the drone is able to reach areas quickly and highly cost effectively, offering advanced analytics for use in feasibility and Research studies.

In conjunction with the Charitable Ajubatus Foundation, it is intended to register a Scientific Study of the breadth of Drone application in wildlife research. This project will be an ongoing investigation into the vast array of applications, as well as being used for strategic veterinary services (it is now feasible to dart injured wildlife from the drone itself).

In terms of animal census programs, the use of Drones is the obvious answer, able to replace conventional fixed wind and helicopter flights and vastly reducing human error in recording data. Effectively, costs can be cut by up to 75% in terms of large scale census monitoring operations in addition to which, data is “flight recorded” with GPS plot points leaving no chance of analytical error.

The US Department of the Interior, Bureau of Land Management and US Geological Services have deployed drones for some year now to an inordinately high level of success.

THE THING ABOUT TOURISM IS THAT THE REALITY OF A PLACE IS QUITE DIFFERENT FROM THE MYTHOLOGY OF IT... MARTIN PARR


TOURISM

Price Available On RequestClick Here For More Info


The application of Drones to fly over tourism venues opens a whole new marketing opportunity to lodges, hotels and resorts in addition to holiday rental houses/apartments.

For the first time a full videography display can be presented showing not only detailed imagery not only of the product itself, but the immediate surrounds, local attractions, location in relation to medical services, churches, shopping, golf course etc.

This is the new age of product marketing in tourism and the applications are quite numerous. Drone Inspired is also looking at the concept of ongoing “beach monitoring” in terms of bathers, presence of sharks, beach security etc.

Whilst this is an ongoing process of development, the application of drones in highlighting resorts in detail is already proving to be enormously successful and venues utilising drone videography have noted an increase in sales and notable increase in forward bookings.

All sense of product and regional uncertainty is removed from the equation as potential guests are able to overfly the area from the comfort of their homes, choosing the optimal product for their needs.

Drone Inspired takes the concept of Go Pro and Selfies to a whole new level, offering flight services for all adventure and sports events:

  • Adventure tours where competitors can be followed without compromising their activity.
  • Launches of new products and stores – offering security detail, management of event feedback on success quotients as well as providing a data base for future programmes.
  • Safety and Security
  • Pre Tour venue assessment, optimal route mapping
  • Mapping of terrain and key features for competitors and event management

The list of applications is endless and offers client and sponsors and whole new world of electronic data to play with in terms of assessment, marketing and sponsorship drives.

The deployment of drones allows footage of inaccessible areas to conventional motorised traffic as well as defining high risk areas etc. and optimal positioning of monitoring points. To the competitor – it offers a videography record of an event they had undertaken and offers a commercial “add on value” to event organisers.

REAL ESTATE MARKETING

This is an area in which enormous growth has been seen in Drone Videography and US statistics show a 400% increase in internet viewings as well as notably expedited sales finalisation on properties.

Drone photography and videography provides high definition (up to 4k) imagery of not only the interior of a residential or commercial property, but detailed overhead footage of the grounds, roofing and external features of the property. In addition to this, the footage reflects surrounding features and attractions and can be expanded to offering a bird’s eye view of the suburb or town in which the property is listed. Thus is becomes an all in one tour of the region, access to churches, schools, medical centres etc. and condition of the property and its neighbourhood in general. For the first time property buyers can obtain clear visuals of the property and its surrounds.

A US report has stated properties may sell up to 4 times more quickly based on Drone Videography and the cost effectiveness of the process is quite remarkable.

Actual flight time can be minimal and pre plotted ensuring the aircraft flies a specified pattern, minimising any sense of invasiveness of personal property. The editing process is slightly more complex and time consuming – but at the end of the day this is the “final production” and includes voice over and/or music overlays to accompany the production. Drone applications in Real Estate is a fast growing industry in Europe and the US in particular and is fast becoming the minimum specification of product marketing. The footage can be downloaded and access restrictions applied where required and can also be loaded to third party web sites without threat or concern.

This is the new standard for product marketing, hardly surprising that we at Drone Inspired, have spent months honing flight skills, establishing optimal profile shots and utilising the very vest Directors of Photography (this allows the pilot to simply man the flight operation as the DOP handles camera angles etc.

WIND TURBINES

There are believed to be over 270 000 wind turbines in operation globally and over 800 000 blades fitted to operating turbines.

Conventionally, maintenance and routine inspection was an extremely labour intensive and costly process that also enforced up to 6 hours downtime on turbines. The application of drones in inspections and maintenance offers not only a cost effective approach and 15% of conventional down time, but has the advantage of offering advanced analytics of videography and photographic records in extremely high resolution. The deployment of infra-red and/or thermal imaging cameras is a further breakthrough that protects the investment in turbine technology.

The safety aspects speak for themselves, no longer is work undertaken using rope techniques and temporary scaffolding (again time consuming and dangerous), the drone takes all the risk.

Drone Inspired has committed considerable time and research into the process and optimal requirements to effective flight management of drone applications for use in insurance claims, warranty protection and routine operations. We have based much of our protocols on work undertaken in Europe on Drone applications in the wind turbine industry and we can now offer a dynamic and highly efficient service.
