Inspections using Drone / UAV
Falcon’s small-unmanned aircraft (drones) are capable to reach places that are difficult, expensive, dangerous, ‘live’ or even impossible to approach by manned inspection teams.
With different size drones Falcon can inspect indoor, onshore and offshore installations and objects in many different environments. It offers a very cost effective and quick alternative for the traditional manned inspections by scaffolding, crane or rope access which are dangerous, time consuming and costly.
With the unmanned aircraft as platform, a range of remote sensors can be put into position close to the object or installation to be inspected. Skeye uses up to 36 MP cameras to capture stunning high-resolution data in order to visualise and detect the smallest suspected details on site without the need for shutting down the operation. Infra Red imagery offers further insight into heat leakage, insulation problems or the detection of potential combustion sources.

Our inspection services are performed as regular, calamity or pre-maintenance inspections in for instance the on- and offshore wind energy and oil & gas industry. Also in many other industries we inspect installations, buildings, chimneys, telecom- or high voltage pylons.
In addition to the visual or infrared photography Falcon is specialised in measuring from images using photogrammetry. This allows us not only to make a defect such as a crack visible but also to measure its size.
