PIPELINES / OFF SHORE / FLARE STACK / ON SHORE INSPECTIONS Conducting the inspection while the asset was active and transmitting a live transmission to the ground allows our customers to adjust valve and discharge pressures to properly analyze their assets under normal operating conditions. By conducting an inspection of live assets, we eliminated the requirement for a shutdown. Typically, 2 shutdowns are required. One for the analysis of the existing structure, the other for the refurbishment/ replacement required as a result of the existing structure. Our flights permited that there was no need for a shutdown to repair or refurbish anything on the assets in question with the potential knowledge gained from a UAV inspection, our costumers they would be able to eliminate the repair shutdown time by at least 50%. The UAV data would provide actionable insight into the types of materials required for repair, personnel and time requirements to improve operational efficiency. POWER LINE / CABLE INSPECTIONS It is necessary for power companies to watch over its power lines to ensure their safe and economical work. Power lines malfunction may be cost generating and could tarnish the company’s image. Traditional forms of power line inspection using helicopters is expensive and inaccurate. Due to many limitations, a helicopter cannot conduct a precise object testing. Drones have unlimited mobility and are able to perform measurement at various angles from close-up which is a vital point in terms of thermal testing. Time and safety are the key features here which make drones very attractive in terms of reducing costs and accuracy of conducting work. Using drones allows for faster defects’ detection and a well- functioning high voltage power line reduces operating costs and improves safety. SOLAR PANELS / PHOTOVOLTAIC SYSTEMS INSPECTIONS Photovoltaic panels are highly sensitive to external agents and must be regularly inspected and diagnosed in order to efficiently generate electricity. Thermography is the ideal method for inspecting and diagnosing photovoltaic panels. It helps to determine the temperature decomposition and allows for detection of overheated areas in individual cells or all of the module cells. The hot spots results from shading as well as transport or production defects. The thermal imaging cameras integrated with a GPS system to acquire an accurate map of the area together with spacial temperature distribution are equipped with devices which enable making extremely precise aerial measurement. It is a key feature in photovoltaic panels inspection where the combination of thermal camera and UltraHD 4K camera images can provide the comprehensive and complete mapping of the inspected object’s technical condition. WIND TURBINE INSPECTIONS Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV) for wind turbine inspection services are popular due to safety benefits and the cost-sensitive approach they deliver. By conducting an inspection of live assets, drones eliminated the requirement for a shutdown. Typically, each WTG is required to be shutdown to enable a human inspection on the exterior of the WTG itself, which is both time-consuming and dangerous, drones to eliminate the need for a shutdown, however they underestimated the time it would take for them to utilize the drone effectively Our consultancy service in unmanned underwater, aerieal, ground and underground technologies provides our customers 80% CHEAPER: Average cost savings, not including potential lost revenue from downtime 75% FASTER: Than traditional methods requiring scaffolding, rope access and shutdowns 100% SAFER: Eliminate human risk by sending drones into dangerous or hard-to-reach areas 50% BETTER: Average reduced shutdown time from UAV analysis

Environment

UAV environmental inspections that fulfill many inspection requirements, such as those for penstock and pipeline inspections. Unmanned Aerial inspections have several advantages over traditional inspection utilizing a team of individuals: 1. Urban Remote, Industrial or Impassable areas Unmanned Systems are to easily access remote or hard-to-reach areas allowing for Real-time visual inspections coupled with video recording to meet regulatory requirements. 2. Higher Safety With UAV Environmental Inspections Assets often times span over areas where terrain is unstable, verticle, or simply dangerous for foot travel, water or underground surfaces Additionally, field inspections leave your employees vulnerable to extreme temperature changes, altitude sickness, heat stroke or frost bite. The UAV can access these areas without risk of injury or issue, leaving your workers uninjured, invigorated and ready for the next day’s work! 3. Cost Effectiveness Teams of officials, employees and contractors are often required to conduct field inpections for days or weeks at a time. Unmanned aerial inspections are more timely, more efficient and more safe than pounding the ground or climbing mountain faces. Factoring in planning & scheduling, safety meetings, mileage, recovered man-hours, potential down time due to injury, potential worker’s compensation savings, and the intangible consideration of keeping your employees injury-free, our system becomes quite cost-effective. 4. Meet Regulatory Requirements- Exceed expectations! Fines for noncompliance of regulatory policy can range from $3,000.00/ day and soar into the millions of dollars per incident for gross negligence. UAV technology provides an efficient manner to meet a company’s inspection schedule and remain in compliance with the license, permit, or operating procedures that are required by law. UAV Environmental Inspections can provide video and images for reports, archival purposes, and documentation requirements as well as time-lapse presentations where engineers and project managers can measure changes in spalling, coating deterioration, sea pollution, underground surveys or foundation condition over multiple years. UAV Environmental Inspections are accepted by most regulatory agencies as historical documentation and proof of inspection.

Traditional observational surveillance methods are typically limited by the stationary nature of the camera, which is usually handled manually or fixed upon a tripod or other structure. Aerial surveillance can be performed using a helicopter; whilst this achieves the desired result, it is also very costly. Unmanned aircraft systems provide the ideal solution to the problems and limitations faced by other surveillance methods. Drone surveillance presents an easier, faster, and cheaper method of data collection, and a number of other key advantages. Drone planes can enter narrow and confined spaces, produce minimal noise, and can be equipped with night vision cameras and thermal sensors, allowing them to provide imagery that the human eye is unable to detect. UAVs can quickly cover large and difficult-to-reach areas, reducing staff numbers and costs, and do not require much space for their operators. Drones offer several advantages over traditional methods of traffic monitoring: they use waypoint navigation which allows them to be programmed to fly along specific routes repetitively; they can also be deployed to fly over specific roads and in specific situations. Unmanned aircraft are also significantly cheaper than helicopters, meaning they can be deployed more often, thus increasing the overall performance of the traffic monitoring operations.
