Aerial Drone Inspection Services

As well as using drones to inspect specific assets, AUAV also has experience working with asset management clients for large scale and ongoing asset monitoring and maintenance programs. AUAV offers more than just a drone flying service with ASME Plant Inspector qualified staff with decades of experience.

Many of our clients provide AUAV with an asset register and inspection specification and let us manage the inspection works on an ongoing basis, either capturing the data for their own analysis or where appropriate independently reporting and highlighting any issues needing attention.

AUAV’s inSite online inspection data platform can be used to host the visual inspection imagery and 3D models, and we can also use or integrate with your own internal or 3rd party asset management systems.’

Let us know the types and scale of assets you are managing, and we can put together a proposal for how our drone data solutions can not only save costs but provide superior inspection results for improved asset lifecycle and reliability. For more information email

Why Use AUAV For Drone Asset Inspection?

Drone inspection at sunset.
  1. Safer: Our UAV inspection services help avoid workers working in potentially risky areas such as confined spaces, heights, or danger zones.
  2. Faster: Depending on the type of assets, AUAV’s drone inspection services can demonstrate 2x to 10x time saving over traditional methods.
  3. Cost-effective: Our aerial inspection services don’t need rope access, EWP or helicopters for inspections and hence are cost-effective.
  4. Better Data Capturing: AUAV’s drone asset inspections cover full assets with high-resolution imagery and an optional 3D model for record-keeping. Automated defect and change detection between inspections are also possible.
  5. Access to Inspection Results: Our inSite online data platform has been designed to provide drone inspection results to all stakeholders.

Frequently Asked Questions

UAV can capture useful data of almost any asset. Drones can inspect assets (internal/external), including buildings, bridges, rail infrastructure, telecommunications towers, water reservoirs, and rooftops.

The drone can fly close enough to capture high-resolution images of your assets while maintaining a safe distance from the infrastructure.

AUAV has developed an inSite™ platform that the client and other stakeholders can use to view the images and videos and access the drone asset inspection results.

Drones have diverse detection capabilities, and drone asset inspections can detect the below concerns efficiently:

  1. Cracking
  2. Corrosion
  3. Wear and tear
  4. Missing parts such as nut and bolts
  5. Distortion
  6. Hot areas

Internal drone asset inspections use lightweight impact-tolerant drones designed to protect the airframe and camera. The drones can enter closed and confined spaces and inspect:

  1. Interior of tanks
  2. Ducting
  3. Pressure vessels
  4. Large bore piping
  5. Other GPS-denied environments

External drone asset inspections make use of robust airframes with a flight time of over 24 minutes and the ability to withstand and adapt to different wind conditions. These types of external drones can inspect areas such as:

  1. External tank inspections
  2. Stacks
  3. Large structures
  4. Jetties
  5. Flare stacks
  6. Areas at height
