Agriculture

Do more with less. Every dollar counts in the field. Aerial maps and crop mosaics can locate problem drainage areas and provide coverage and canopy information necessary for targeted crop management. Access to data means less waste, lower costs, and better crop yields.

Infrastructure

Routine inspections are necessary to ensure that equipment is functioning efficiently and properly. Data from service UAVs can be obtained and analyzed in a fraction of the time it would take to safely and securely assemble scaffolding. Save time and minimize risks around transmission lines, boilers, water towers, communication towers, and other hard-to-reach areas with our high-resolution drone images.

Mining

UAV services have become a vital tool in open-cast mining operations. High-definition cameras and laser technologies can furnish high definition 3-D maps, provide survey information, inform productivity assessments, and provide information necessary for volume and mass determination all at the same time. These services can be obtained more quickly and accurately than traditional analog methods at a fraction of the cost of traditional aerial techniques.

Security

Overhead maps and orthomosaics are important security tools. Visualizing your land and property can help to establish perimeters and help identify “at-risk” security areas. Protect your property, equipment, and herds by developing an emergency preparedness plan from theft, flooding, tornadoes, and other forces of nature. Make sure your resources are documented and protected.

Construction

Time is money on the job site. Our UAVs and imaging software can survey project and development sites more quickly than traditional terrestrial survey methods. Use site mosaics and aerial cartography readings to dial-in your next construction project, or use our CAD compatible imaging software to map and model existing structures.

Inventory & Resource Management

UAVs provide real-time data and information for quick decision-making related to asset management, productivity assessment, and yield. Aerial photos and camera footage can also help with resource management and equipment allocation. Data provided from stills and video footage can help in many areas, like large-scale herd estimates, fleet vehicle management, and equipment inventory.

Oil & Gas

Productivity and response times are critical in the oil and gas industry. UAV services are designed to gather information quickly and accurately to improve safety and efficiency while maximizing yield. UAVs with Flir cameras can inspect pipelines and detect problems in a fraction of the time it would take to walk them. Infrared capabilities can be used for spill and leak assessment, terrain mapping, and ice and environmental monitoring.

Our Fleet

DJI Matrice 100

DJI Matrice 100

Built for the developer, the Matrice 100 has been designed to be a customizable platform able to respond to a multitude of projects and conditions. A rugged and stable airframe gives this UAV the ability to not only shoot 4k video and high resolution images, but also carry the FLIR VUE line of thermal sensors. And when mapping conditions are tough, the Matrice 100 can stay in the air for 40+ minutes with its dual battery design.

eBee AG

eBee AG

The eBee AG drone is built to meet all of your agricultural data gathering needs. With five camera options, user-friendly automated flight planning, advanced artificial intelligence and real-time in-flight monitoring, this reliable agriculture drone is hard to beat. The eBee’s Terra 3D software quickly generates customizable NDVI formulas to create maps, false-color orthomosaics and 3D models of your crops to produce your most profitable yields.

Altura Zenith

Altura Zenith - Insight Environmental

This system was designed for compatibility with a wide array of sensors, gimbals and cameras making this multi-rotor copter ideal for customized solutions. Functions such as hover-in-place capability and remote camera control allow operators to zoom in on unsafe, problem areas on towers, high voltage power lines and wind turbines.

Helios 150

Helios 150

The Helios 150 was created through a collaboration between Insight Environmental and the University of Minnesota, Duluth. It is the ideal drone for confined space investigations as it operates without the aid of GPS signals or compass data. Primarily designed to fly within pulp digesters used in paper product manufacturing, the Helios 150 operates above the 120-degree limit of most UAVs and is tethered for emergency evacuations.
