AERIAL IMAGING

AERIAL IMAGING

Textron Systems delivers reliable imagery and real-time data in the world's most austere environments. Our team can handle any industry, any challenge with a variety of resources to get the job done right the first time. 

Agriculture
  • Create NDVI crop health maps, monitor farm infrastructure, perimeter fences, gates, and water points for large farming operations
  • Maintain aerial surveillance of long range stock movements, in both RGB (full-colour) and Thermal Infrared video
  • Observe forestry, crop and pasture conditions and assist with precision agriculture decisions in real time
  • Monitor and track feral animal populations
Emergency Services
  • Fast, aerial assessment from floods to fires, providing situational awareness not achievable from ground level
  • Long-range line scanning and high-definition cameras to create aerial spotting data for brush fire control, keeping even ground crew in a deep valley within radio range
  • 24-hour surveillence with multiple systems
  • Expanded coverage for search-and-rescue response
Energy
  • Monitor oil, gas and electricity infrastructure over large, remote areas
  • Monitor lines with high-resolution and thermal imaging videos/still photography to identify leaks, hot spots, or environmental damage
  • Faster, safer inspection, keeping personnel out of harm's way 
  • Precise data for increased situational awareness, lower cost, and improved safety of maintenance staff
  • Accurate measurement of large mass volumes
  • Conduct inspections on demand, or in regular intervals to track results over time
Infrastructure
  • Safely and affordably observe expensive infrastructure in distance or remote areas along with forward planning, damage assessment of roads, bridges and railways
  • Conduct detailed inspection of buildings to towers to dam walls for timely decisions
  • Detect anomalies or changes in traffic patterns day and night
  • Secure high-resolution photogrammetry and thermal video imaging for a top-down view of area
Security
  • With 12+ hours endurance and range of more than 120 km, the systems can cover large perimeters, coastal areas, and a top down blanket view of any required locations
  • Day and night vision form high resolution and zoom video images in RGB colour and thermal scanning detects life from 9+ km distance
  • Low noise signature optimized for covert operations
  • Speed, area coverage, and payload technology imaging make Aerosonde® Small Unmanned Aircraft System the perfect supplement to ground security personnel
Surveying & Mapping
  • Conduct monitoring and mapping services to centimeter precision requirements, ability to track volumetric changes and waste prevention for remote or offshore needs
  • Collect accurate spatial data from aerial view to reduce man-hours required to produce large, accurate data sets, assisting in personnel safety, time and man-hours
  • High resolution ortho-mosaics, digital surface models, and three-dimensional representations of mine sites or large survey areas can significantly reduce costs
  • Thermal imaging can identify overheating equipment, ground water inflow, and wildlife tracking operations
