Unmanned Surveying Vessels (USV) 

SurvTech leads the industry in the use of advanced Unmanned Surveying Vessel (USV) technologies to provide the best-in-class geospatial solutions for the future.

We are committed to being at the forefront of leading geospatial technologies.  We use a professional-grade UAV platforms to perform data acquisition including RBG imagery, video, LiDAR, FLIR, multi spectral, and magnetometer sensors. SurvTech is fully approved by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) to operate UAV's for aerial mapping and inspection services.  SurvTech is one of the few firms in the southeast that has aerial LiDAR and imagery on UAV's and airplanes.  Our LiDAR processing department has been working with aerial LiDAR for 15+ years, so processing LiDAR from an aerial vehicle is nothing new to us.  If you haven't used UAV LiDAR on your large project sites, now is the time to start considering it. 

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