Drones for Industrial Inspections - Dr Drone

drones for industrial inspections

Many enterprises have complex and expensive operations that can be costly and time-consuming to inspect. Inspections can be essential to the efficiency and safety of many industries from oil and gas to infrastructure. Drone technology is now an affordable, easy-to-use tool for enterprises looking to conduct professional aerial inspections and collect data that can optimize their operations, reduce costs, and keep workers safe.





Whether it's a large construction project, technical installation, or property for sale, a drone in the air can help operators keep a close eye on a project's progress, or enable a realtor to garner a unique perspective of a property that will help them stand out from the crowd and attract potential buyers.

With the ability to create 3D maps, orthomosaics, collect elevation data, and gather volumetric measurements, a drone can easily detect potential mistakes before they occur and optimize efficiencies while keeping workers out of harm's way. Now, operators, managers, and developers can stay up-to-date on an operations progress whether they are on site or observing from a remote location.

drones in agriculture





Farmers have traditionally walked through fields, manually assessing their crops for signs of disease or stress. With drone technology, farmers can now revolutionize the way they inspect their crops and livestock.
Drones in the agriculture industry can assist farmers and operators in monitoring crop conditions, irrigation levels, soil quality, and more. A drone can additionally create 3D maps to help farmers better manage their crops to increase yields and prevent disease. With data collection and imagery from a drone, farmers can now optimize the efficiency of their operations while saving valuable time and resources.  







Safe operational standards are critical when it comes to the running of energy operations including nuclear, oil and gas, and more. When it comes to traditional inspection methods, operators are challenged with the task of performing inspections over large and complex facilities while keeping workers safe and out of harm's way.

A drone equipped with a thermal or zoom camera can easily pinpoint defective equipment, to keep energy production running at optimal levels. With a drone, large operations from solar farms to pipelines can be inspected quickly and efficiently from the air to keep facilities running efficiently and safely.

In every emergency response situation, every second counts. Drones can now fly to the rescue to assist police in the collection of data to better analyze crime scenes, or assist search and rescue teams in quickly tracking down victims. With a drone in the air, operators can quickly and efficiently collect detailed data and footage to help emergency response crews cut down on costs, maximize the efficiency of operations, and keep workers safe.





Industries such as mining and transportation are complex and require regular inspections to ensure that operations are safe, and running efficiently. A drone in the air can collect data to enable users to create 3D models, orthomosaics, elevation data, and volumetric measurements. With the information collected by the drone, operators can analyze job sites from beginning to end, or quickly assess results that can make planning easier and much more efficient.

From Game of Thrones to Spectre, Hollywood has placed a spotlight on drone technology, as they see the technologies potential cost and time savings, and ability to easily create innovative and dynamic shots that were previously unavailable with cranes and helicopters.

From music videos, television, documentaries, news stations, and big-budget Hollywood productions, whether you're a large production studio or a small independent film company, now anyone can have the ability to capture stunning aerial shots.

Enterprise drones - DJI Matrice 300

The DJI Matrice 300 RTK sets a new standard for industrial applications. Featuring a 15 km transmission range and up to a 55-minute flight time, the Matrice 300 RTK will travel farther away and longer than any other Matrice system. The Matrice 300 RTK unlocks the ability of the AI-powered core for improved automated operations, saving time and money when used with the Zenmuse H20 series payloads. With an IP45 rating for ingress protection, the Matrice 300 is capable of flying in harsh conditions and almost all weather conditions. With multiple payload mounting options including a three payload option (dual downward and single upward), the Matrice 300 RTK is well suited for an incredibly wide variety of applications.

The Zenmuse H20 is a three-sensor solution which offers a 20mp Zoom camera and a 12mp wide camera. With a video resolution of 4K/30fps, the 20mp 1/1.7' CMOS sensor allows for 23x hybrid optical zoom and 200x max zoom. This strong zoom camera helps you to maintain a safe distance between your drone and the areas you can need to photograph that are potentially hazardous. On the Zenmuse H20, the 12mp wide camera comes with a 1/2.3" CMOS sensor with an equal 24mm focal length. This helps you to photograph anything in focus without taking everything out of the picture, in crystal clear quality. With a range of 3-1200m and exceptional precision, the laser rangefinder provides accurate distance data. The Zenmuse H20T camera includes all the sensors from the Zenmuse H20 with an addition of a high resolution radiometric thermal camera. This camera has a 40.6 degree DFOV, 640x512 resolution and a 30fps frame rate and thermal sensitivity less than or equivalent to 50mk at f1.0.

When used in combination with the Zenmuse P1, the Matrice 300 RTK provides a versatile Full Frame photogrammetry solution. The Zenmuse P1 has Time Sync 2.0, which provides microsecond-level synchronization, making it more accurate than its predecessor. The P1 uses a Global Mechanical shutter with 1/2000s shutter speeds. The rolling shutter effect is no longer an issue, and every photo yields correct results. High-quality photos will be produced by the 45 MP Full Frame sensor, resulting in a high-quality map. The P1 can traverse 3 km2 in a single flight when combined with the Matrice 300 RTK, making it extremely efficient. The P1 comes with three lens selections that will perfectly match your mapping mission.

The pairing of the Matrice 300 RTK with the Zenmuse L1 provides a full solution that offers real-time 3D data throughout the trip. The L1 is capable of giving complicated structural information as well as very accurate rebuilt models. The Zenmuse L1 is certified IP44, so it can withstand whatever the elements throw at it. The L1has up to 100 percent coverage at 240,000 points per second. At 480,00 points per second, supporting 3 Returns gives you a more accurate result. The L1 can do non-repetitive Petal Scans and Line Scans, giving you the freedom you need to complete your task.


The Mavic 2 Enterprise Advanced, like the Mavic 2 Enterprise Dual, is a thermal and visual camera. This drone has a foldable and small design that makes it simple to travel and store. You can measure all of the data you need on your operation from a safe distance thanks to the dual thermal and optical imaging. The M2EA is a more budget-friendly option to the Matrice 300, with a lower price tag that can help you get the job done correctly.

A 48-megapixel visual camera on the Mavic 2 Enterprise Advanced allows up to 4x lossless zoom and up to 32x digital zoom. A 1/2-inch CMOS sensor powers it, capturing sharp, detailed photos of crucial assets. It also incorporates a thermal imaging sensor with a 640 x 512 resolution, 16x digital magnification, and a 30 Hz frame rate. This thermal imager has a temperature measurement accuracy of 2°C and may be used for everything from inspections to firefighting.
