Australian UAV specialises in aerial inspection using drone technology to help assess tall or otherwise inaccessible assets and infrastructure, often circumventing the need for isolation or shutdowns. As well as their greater efficiency, the use of drones improves safety by avoiding working at heights to inspect these structures by traditional rope access or Elevated Work Platforms.

Carrying high-resolution zoom cameras, our drones hover within close range of of the assets, providing the best possible vantage point from any angle, capturing details such as serial numbers and the corrosion on individual bolts. Through our live video feed you can see what we are capturing in flight, and we can also review the imagery on a laptop after landing to ensure we have everything before leaving the site. These images then form an important archival record of the structure’s condition over time.

AUAV has considerable experience working on remote or industrial sites and has tailored safety management systems in place for these environments. We are confident in flying multi-rotor UAVs in difficult conditions, including magnetic field and RF interference, and work together with clients and other consultants to capture exactly the data they need.
