Regular asset inspections can prevent faults, service interruptions and deterioration of assets caused by neglect. Early detection is particularly important as infrastructure ages.

Using our unique photogrammetry techniques specifically designed for facility managers, asset auditors and mine site managers, the data we collect can be constructed into accurate 3D models of the site, enabling the geo-location and visualisation of assets. High resolution or­tho-mosaic images can be created.

Using our software, an inspection view can be utilised showing high resolution images, which can then be annotated with potential defects including report generation highlighting either defective elements or the general condition of assets.

No longer is it necessary to deploy a person on a roof top for the purpose of inspection. Building inspection and assessment can now be undertaken on desktop ensuring safer practices and more accurate building assessment. With our drone services, work orders, maintenance schedules and asset lists can now be prepared without going to the site.


Be smarter in the civil Engineering and construction industries by keeping tight control over your project costs.

Remotely piloted aircraft systems are providing a level of previously unmatched visibility over large-scale projects, improving transparency, enhancing site safety and helping avert costly disruptions. WHS managers are able to continually observe progress and identify new emerging hazardous risks, placing them in a better position to plan risk minimisation and mitigation strategies throughout the course of the project.

Beyond standard imaging capability, captured footage can be processed through our specialist software to produce elevation models, 2D maps and three-dimensional representations of worksites that can be viewed and annotated, without the need for specialist software.

Using our drone services, engineers can use the data to measure distances, area, stockpile volumes, create polygons, place identifying markers, identify latent machinery and add annotations using a standard browser, that can then easily be shared and commented on.


Drones are helping to reduce project timelines by collecting data safer, faster and smarter.

Drones are rapidly increasing in popularity with surveyors, cartographers, topographers, photogram metrists, civil engineers, and geographers who provide a wide variety of land-related services such as identifying property boundaries, subdividing land, and surveying construction sites for placement of buildings, due to their ability to rapidly collect the data needed to produce maps. Surveying projects that once took days or weeks using traditional charting techniques are now possible in just a few hours.

Aerial images combined with data from ground control points are processed through our specialist GIS software to produce highly accurate digital surface and terrain models, construct 3D models and generate point-cloud maps.


Professional photography (incorporating commercial, industrial, real estate, wedding, sports and event photography).

From real estate or business photography, to high-quality imagery for your construction site or other project, our professional team can assist. From extreme sports people, to real estate companies, we are using drones to capture the special moments in their respective fields.

We are proud to bring you our aerial videography drone services which are filmed in high resolution.

We have the capacity to provide real-time video to directors and/or producers so that you can be sure that you capture the perfect footage for your project.
