As from January, 2017, DutchInspect BV offers licenced Aerial Services.
By using a high-tech drone, the latest imaging software and autonomous flight, we offer:
For your project, business promotion or any other application, we offer images and videos in HD. Drone imaging allows to capture images from angles that previously could only be made at high costs like the use of cranes or mobile platforms. Drone imaging can also be used for inspections on places which are difficult to reach (power masts / roof tops / bridges / wind turbines and more)
Drones can also map your project and provide with a full 3D image. Examples:
Specific software allows drone imaging to create a full 3D image from your project / stockpile or other from which one can take the exact measurements. This same technology also allows volumetric calculations; by flying over a stockpile, the precise volume can be measured. This technique requires the drone to have access to GPS signals.
A new drone is being developed to also provide volumetric imaging inside warehouses where GPS signals are not available. We expect this drone to become operational late Q1 2017. We will keep you up to date on developments on this site.
A special camera for thermal imaging can be used to create images showing the object in Infra Red. This allows to measure differences in temperature and to convert this into coloured images showing the hot spots in or on your object. Amongst the many applications, one can think of finding poorly isolated places in structures or buildings (heat-leaks).
This technique can specifically be applied to frequently monitor the temperature on stockpiles of coal and/or woodpellets; both commodities subject to spontaneous combustion. The thermal images can be projected onto a 3D image made in the visible light.
Presently, thermal monitoring is conducted actively or passively:
The disadvantages from these two methods are:
Thermal imaging with a drone counters most disadvantages of the currently used active or passive techniques.
DutchInspect BV is developing hard- and software for hyperspectral imaging. Hyperspectral imaging captures images in wavelengths outside the visible light: Infra Red, Ultra Violet and beyond. These images show object-conditions not visible to the naked eye:
