Making infrastructure

Many organisations have invested heavily in deploying large infrastructure across an expansive geographic network, maybe even spanning countries and continents (for example power lines, mobile phone towers, bridges, oil pipelines). Infrastructure must be routinely inspected to not only ensure its structural integrity for continuing safe operations but also to monitor for intruders and other potential trespassers. 

Traditionally, inspections have been completed by deploying teams of people. However, these types of examinations often entail high risk situations and very long journeys requiring each team member to spend a long time in the field.

UAV technologies

Airborne Light Detection and Ranging (LiDAR) is revolutionising the way many civilian industries gather data. With a wide range of applications from pipeline, transmission line and highway and railway corridor surveys to coastal, forestry and flood plain surveys, LiDAR, or laser mapping, has the ability to penetrate difficult to access areas quickly and efficiently.

At 3FAS, each platform is LiDAR enabled to cover any area, eliminating the danger of manned crews becoming subjected to difficult terrain or not being able to travel across survey areas.

Tackle deforestation

SKELDAR provides a range of platforms to help monitor forests and woodlands and gather important data quickly and efficiently to make decisions fast.

Forests and woodlands are among the most biodiverse and valuable terrestrial ecosystems on the planet. The world’s natural forests and woodlands are shrinking due to the impacts of climate change and many years of deforestation. Causes include agribusiness, illegal logging, mining, building new roads and more recently an increase in hydroelectric dams.

Skeldar Improves Agricultural Data Delivery

With an Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV), such activities as crop control and the tracking of animals are made efficient with precision targeting at a fraction of the time taken by traditional methods. At 3FAS, we have a variety of platforms to help monitor the vast lands in question. 

Wildlife conservation techniques

Wildlife Conservation involving the protection of plant and animal species and their habitats is a priority across hotspots worldwide. Increasingly Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) and Command, Control, Communications, Computers, Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (C4ISR) strategies are helping government agencies and non-governmental organisations (NGOs) to implement policies designed to protect wildlife.

3FAS brings the technology to gather the required data to help concerned agencies to make quicker and more informed decisions
