Remotely Operated Aerial Vehicles (ROAV) offer many advantages for the inspection of hard-to-reach and dangerous environments. Our aerial vehicles can capture extremely high-resolution stills, 4K video and thermal imaging.
ITCL is ISO9001 and OHSAS 18801 accredited. All ROAV pilots have full UK Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) Permissions to Operate and carry £5m public liability Insurance.
Our software features GPS capability and automated flight control, meaning that repeatable patterns of surveys are possible. These surveys can highlight degradation of equipment and structures or changes over time can be measured and monitored.
ITCL can carry out 3D photogrammetry, including carrying LIDAR payloads, which enables accurate 3D modelling and the presentation of data if required.
Remotely Operated Aerial Vehicle (ROAV) Inspection can be used in a wide variety of applications over land or water. At ITCL we have the capability to design and adapt aircraft, payload, sensor systems and software to complete any inspection conceived, using current technology, if not listed below.
ITCL can deliver high resolution conventional still images, 4K video images, still and video thermal images and 3D models if required.
Our ROAVs are a six-rotor aircraft, able to offer heavy lift capability coupled with greater redundancy and improved safety. Smaller four-rotor craft will be used in less-mission critical applications where higher endurance and automation is required such as solar farm surveys, where an automated, repeatable grid pattern is flown by the aircraft's computers.
All ITCL's aircraft provide a live feed of the aircraft's visuals, to ensure the data you need is being captured while in flight.
The setup time for inspections is greatly reduced compared to the complexity and preparation of rope work or other traditional systems when working at height. Our aircrafts are typically flying within 20 minutes of our pilots arriving on site.
Aerial survey can be as much as 50 times faster than conventional ground-based techniques
Safety is our primary concern and we are in our third year of operating remotely piloted aircraft, and our rigorous safety procedures ensure that we haven't had a single safety incident during that time. A risk assessment and Method Statement is compiled prior to every project.
