About AUAV

Established in 2013, AUAV is one of the first drone service businesses in Australia. We have offices across Australia and have opened in the UK in 2023. We offer topographical surveys, LiDAR, confined space and external inspection, 3D modelling and other bespoke projects.

Joining the Vertech Group in 2022 enables AUAV to leverage the additional services across the group companies and extend our services internationally.

Unlike many other drone businesses, our staff are full-time employees, therefore we have greater control over the quality and consistency of service. Our data is processed in Australia by our local processing team and housed on local secure servers.

AUAV is about data outcomes, not drones. With our in-house inSite data solution we offer an end-to-end consulting, capture and data hosting service.

James Rennie is the founder and Managing Director of AUAV and operates out of the Melbourne head office. Our staff come from a diverse range of industries including drafting/GIS, computer programming, machine learning, ASME/ACIP qualified inspection, GPS machine control, survey, photography, laser scanning, asset condition reporting and advanced photogrammetry.

This broad skill base gives us a unique approach to data collection and enables us to add considerable value to flight operations, analysis and reporting.

AUAV has been recognised each year by Drone Industry Insights as one of the Top 20 drone service providers globally the only Australian company on the list.

We are certified by the Australian Civil Aviation Safety Authority (certificate #CASA.UOC.0057) and hold all necessary public liability, professional indemnity and work cover insurances.
