SRK Consulting uses unmanned aircraft system (UAS) technology to deliver enriched aerial mapping and imagery.

SRK has developed a fixed-wing UAS platform for capturing aerial imagery at a fraction of the cost of other commercial UAS systems and traditional aerial photography which allows the savings to be passed on to the clients.

Using our internal technical expertise, RC knowledge, and off-the-shelf components, SRK has built a platform that will compete on par with commercially available offerings in the final product output, while lowering operating costs.

The UAS technology can capture high quality images with horizontal ground resolutions of up to four centimeters. It can also capture elevation surface data with vertical ground accuracy of up to 10 cm in bare ground areas. This level of resolution and accuracy yields important details missed by other imaging platforms and approaches.

SRK's GIS experts can then use this image data to produce better quality, more informative topographical contour maps and 3-D digital surface models. The process is cost effective, quicker, safe to deploy, and the data and image outputs integrate easily with other GIS and CAD systems.

Along with amazing imagery, the data can be used to create accurate elevation datasets:

SRK has also recently acquired a 3D Robotics X8 multi-copter system. In addition to implementing various sensors onboard the multi-copter platform, SRK is currently testing the platform for water sample collection activities in hard to get to, or unsafe environments.
