Critical Infrastructure

To keep our society running, well-functioning infrastructure is key. Drones can help you find problem areas you may not have been able to spot while on the ground.


Through digital terrain and surface models, aerial photography can help farmers increase crop yields and pinpoint areas of disease or poor irrigation. Drones help reduce the chemicals in the food with precision spraying in only the areas needed utilizing fewer chemicals that could end up in the products they produce, which also protects and nurtures the environment.

This data comes from sensors mounted to the drone capturing imagery, which provides much-needed information, thereby reducing the field input, which reduces costs. Soil health and soil loss, water usage and management, and chemical use mitigation are just some of the reports we can generate through aerial imagery.


Climbing up on top of a building is dangerous, so why put yourself in harms’ way when a drone can do the work for you? Find any potential problem spots by zooming in on particular areas or zooming out to get a wider perspective. Drones have also proven helpful in optimizing measurements, which are far more precise than traditional methods. This reduces waste and costs in materials and supplies, saving business where it matters most, the bottom line.


To properly inspect a building or other type of infrastructure, you need to examine every single part of it thoroughly. Drone photography can help you study hard-to-reach places to give you a better idea if a specific building is up to code.


The usefulness of aerial photography for government agencies is endless. You can capture the beauty of national or state parks, advertise local events, or aid police and fire departments in search and rescue efforts.
