Unmanned Aerial Vehicle Surveys - Drone Surveying

Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV) 

SurvTech leads the industry in the use of advanced Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) and Unmanned Aerial System (UAS) technologies to provide the best-in-class geospatial solutions.

We are committed to being at the forefront of leading geospatial technologies. We use a professional-grade UAV platforms to perform data acquisition including RGB imagery, video, LiDAR, FLIR, multi spectral, and magnetometer sensors. These are not your hobby level drone. SurvTech is fully approved by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) to operate UAVs for aerial mapping and inspection services. SurvTech is one of the few firms in the southeast that has aerial LiDAR and imagery on UAVs and airplanes. Our LiDAR processing department has been working with aerial LiDAR for 15+ years, which makes us highly experienced in processing LiDAR from an aerial vehicle. If you haven't used UAV LiDAR on your large project sites before, now is the time!

Drone Land Surveying Advantages

Drone Surveying Saves Time

Time Savings

Cover large areas with accurate measurements in a fraction of the time of traditional methods.

Federal Aviation Administration Approved

Fully Licensed

Drone operators are fully approved by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) to fly drones for aerial mapping and inspection services.

Accurate Drone Survey Models

Accurate Models

LiDAR Drone surveys enhance traditional survey data and can be mapped with a variety of 3D methods.

Increased Safety

Increased Safety

Steep slopes, inaccessible areas, and harsh terrain are much easier for a drone to map. Highways and train tracks can remain in operation while data is collected overhead.

At SurvTech our UAVs are another tool in our geospatial toolbox. We utilize a pair of DJI Matrice 600+ Professional UAVs because of their "workhouse" ability to get the job done. We also have an American-made Harris M6 Hybrid UAV for large sites. Our DJI 600+ UAVs will fly for approximately 18 minutes with our LiDAR/camera payload, while the Harris M6 hybrid (Gas and Electric) UAV has a flight time of over 1 hour. The extended flight time means fewer missions to process and calibrate, saving time and money for our clients.
