Natural Resources Management
Until now, methods of surveying, detecting, and locating leaks in the oil and gas fields have been inefficient and costly to conduct. Workers have risked their lives to climb high-rising stacks and inspections have caused lengthy activity shutdowns.
Drones are a cost effective and safe solution to all of these problems. Drones can help you take your business to the next level with the efficiency, mobility and speed of drones designed for commercial use and the perfect sensor package. Your business will improve on safety, it can help you move into the next generation of inspections in the oil and gas industry.
OIL & GAS PIPELINE INSPECTIONS
Drones have become the most economical type of platform for the inspection of the thousands of miles of pipelines transporting oil and gas around the world. These infrastructures must constantly be monitored to reduce the potential for undetected leaks, which in the past have caused life threatening fires and explosions. The temperature differences between fluid and soil mean that oil and gas leaks show up well in thermal imaging. Operators can fly drones and hover at low altitudes over the pipelines with special cameras and sensors, sending information to the assessor showing the pipe’s condition.
OFFSHORE OIL PLATFORM INSPECTIONS
Working offshore only adds to the intricacy of inspecting oil platforms, and puts workers at a higher risk. Lengthy shutdowns can damage efficiency and operations are forced to go offline. Transitioning your business from the traditional methods to using drones can help minimize these complications. Drones can fly within meters of the offshore platform whilst sending real-time information to the operator on the rig. HD video and still imagery can be provided from all angles - vital information that can be used to assess and plan necessary work in advance.
GAS EMISSIONS MONITORING
The highly sensitive optical sensors that are available with drones can help monitor gas emissions over critical sites and large areas that are otherwise difficult to cover. They make surveying, identifying and correcting leaks a manageable task and with nearly 500,000 hydraulically fractured gas wells across the U.S., this task is critical. Drones help reduce the cost of carrying out such inspections and allow safe 3D mapping of drill sites, gas pipelines, landfills and other municipal operations,

Aerial Mapping Solutions
Argimapic mapping drones are capable of capturing and converting thousands of aerial images into geo-referenced 2D mosaics, 3D surface models & point clouds, down to an absolute accuracy of just few centimeters.
How it works
Our drones are purpose-built to survey small to large areas and provide geo-referenced, high resolution imagery from low altitude not available from conventional aircraft. Using state-of-the-art artificial intelligence, they are programmed to follow GPS-guided flight paths to automatically capture the required imagery. The data from each flight is recorded, allowing us to also repeat the flight at later intervals to create time-lapse photography.

Aerial VIDEO & PHOTOGRAPHY
The recent advent of professional remote-controlled filming technology provides the ability to show viewers remarkably smooth ultra high-definition aerial footage from a perspective that has never been seen before. Companies around the world are starting to take advantage of this, and now Aerial Video filming is used in many applications both by video production experts and professionals from other industries.
UAVs are particularly suitable for Aerial Video applications due to their numerous advantages such as versatility and mobility, quiet and safe operations.
Our unmanned aerial platforms coupled experienced photographers, are widely used for aerial video & photography. Applications include cartography, photogrammetric surveys, land-use planning, archaeology, movie and artistic projects, environmental studies, surveillance, commercial advertising, property analysis, agriculture and many other uses.
Due to our System Integration capabilities our UAVs offer a wide variety of payload options (cameras on-board) choices that would satisfy requirements of any photo or video professional.
