We are dedicated to delivering to you, our valued client, the latest UAS and UAV technology with excellence in service.
Our aircraft carry the latest in digital photogrammetry to capture raw images and data while flying a pre-determined course. We pride ourselves on rapid deployment, high resolution images and videos, cutting-edge sensors, thorough data analysis, and team collaboration. Empire Unmanned offers technology and services that are environmentally clean and sustainable.
Why Outsource Drone Services?
Many companies go out and purchase UASs thinking it will save them time and money. One or two employees are assigned the task of purchasing and learning to operate the drones. More often than not, the wrong drone is purchased for the job at hand and operating the drones effectively proves unsuccessful. The quality of data collection and analysis is breached. In the long-term, more time is lost in training, oversight and corrections. Incurred costs increase due to the lack of data integrity, crashed drones and the loss of accurate data interpretation. Drone, sensor and camera equipment soon becomes obsolete, contributing to more overhead costs.
Empire Unmanned carries several different drone models, sensors and camera lenses to ensure that our clients are getting the best UAS technology possible to successfully achieve their project goals and objectives. We make sure that the equipment we fly is appropriate for each and every clients’ unique project, carrying fixed-wing, multi-copter and blimps suited for scientific studies, commercial, government and military applications.
You can depend on Empire Unmanned to provide the expertise you need for effective and efficient drone missions. Not only do we provide professional drone pilots, we take additional steps to ensure the quality and safety of UAS operations, collection of viable data, clarification of data reports, and collaboration with your teams.
Empire Unmanned’s UAS services are cost effective and save you time by reducing or eliminating down time, avoiding hazardous and dangerous conditions, providing accurate data, and comprehensive data analysis.
Aerial Mapping & Surveys
Empire Unmanned provides professional and reliable delivery of high-quality Aerial Mapping and Surveying services.
Our drones have the ability to capture on-demand maps for a fraction of the cost of the traditional manned aircraft approaches, and at a much higher resolution than satellites. We also process the data so that it is expertly assessed and interpreted.
The drone outputs are geo-referenced and ortho-rectified, meaning that measurements and calculations can be taken directly from the drones. Data samples include such applications as basic distance, area and slope calculations, stockpile volume analysis, sight lines, or watershed runoff simulations.
Our drones will easily and accurately assess your site data, and provide comprehensive modelling and analysis for the planning and monitoring of your projects.
Empire Unmanned flies drone missions for situations that are hazardous, dangerous, out of reach, or for any other inaccessible infrastructure or assets. Not only do the drones provide accurate calculations and high-resolution images for inspections and evaluations, they help you avoid costly shutdowns and improve worker safety.
Using high-resolution cameras with zoom lenses, we are able to hover over critical, hard to reach areas, providing best possible vantage points from numerous angles. Our equipment is able to obtain fine details, such as serial numbers, tiny cracks, seal leakage, bolt corrosion, and more. Using live video feed, you can observe real-time the images we are catching in flight. We also review images and video with you immediately after the flight to ensure that all of the needed information has been captured before leaving the site. The images form an important archival record of the structures and machinery for future reference.
Below are some of the circumstances under which we conduct aerial inspections:
- Microwave Towers
- Power Towers & Lines
- Solar Farms & Solar Roof Panels
- Wind Turbine Towers & Blades
- Dam Walls & Turbines
- Lighting Pole Maintenance
- Construction Projects, time-lapse photography
- Damage Evaluations
- Building Facades & Roofs
- RGB Color & Thermal Cameras, digital stills or video
Empire Unmanned provides aerial monitoring capabilities that are typically conducted with manned flights. Our drones are able to fly missions that are too dangerous even for manned flights to complete, while producing sharper images. The camera equipment our drones carry can see through smoke in a forest fire, producing high definition, high resolution images under those conditions. The drones are also capable of providing internet connections to remote areas. Monitoring abilities include: RGB, thermal, air quality, gas, radiation and magnetic sensors.
Below are applications where UAS aerial monitoring is critical:
- Forest Fire Control & Management
- Search & Rescue
- Land & Waterway Inspections
- Crowd & Traffic Control
- Crop & Livestock Monitoring
- Tracking Wildlife
- Exploration Projects
Aerial Photography & Video
Many of our clients are inspired with the aerial imagery Empire Unmanned offers. We are able to produce videos that are very in-depth, which manned flights cannot capture. We can provide single or dual operator drones, depending on your specific needs.
What a great way to demonstrate your facilities infrastructure and capabilities with a high resolution video!
Empire Unmanned’s aerial photography and video is ideal for following:
- Golf Tournaments & Sporting Events
- Property & Land Videos
- Aesthetic Videos & Still Shots
- Real Estate
- Site Inspections
- Construction Timelines
Drone Data Processing — Done Right the First Time!
Collecting drone data is one thing. Correlating and processing it accurately is another issue. There are several factors that can skew the results of the drone data you have collected. If not assessed and deciphered correctly, errors could end up jeopardizing your entire project, costing you both time and money.
Trying to process the data collected by your drone is also time consuming. Doing the job right might take up far more time than you expected.
Empire Unmanned has the knowhow and technical capabilities to professionally and accurately process your drone data for you. Our industry experts will be thorough, doing the job right from the beginning. We want our clients to have the data they need to ensure the greatest success in completing their projects and protecting their assets, and in a timely manner.
Our data processing services provide:
- Choosing the Right Software for Data Collection
- Fast Turn-Around Time in Data Processing
- Accurate Data Interpretation, Ensuring the Success of Your Projects
