Innovation in Aerial Inspection (Drone/UAV)

Innovation in Aerial Inspection with Drone and UAV

Qualitest Canada is pleased to inform you that, we are in the process of adding Drone/UAV to our inspection equipment inventory soon. Drones and UAV are very good for visual inspection of tall or difficult to reach structures which normally requires cranes, helicopters or rope access work.

Using aerial drones you can now get high-resolution, high-quality photos and video of these structures in an economical manner. You can be sure of the results because you have a live video feed of what the drone is seeing and can direct our aerial operators to capture exactly what you need. The new technology permit us to capturing imagery from infra-red cameras or data from other sensors. Drones are able to get into areas that would otherwise be too dangerous for live inspection, e.g. close-up on live flame stacks or in proximity to chemical leaks. Likewise, because of their small scale and quiet operation our drones can operate close to working sites without disruption.

Finally, the innovation in Aerial Inspection with Drone and UAV is here. The small size and stability of aerial drones makes it possible to conduct internal aerial inspections of sites such as large factories and warehouses, or within other confined locations such as tunnels, mines, or under power lines. The Drone/UAV can be used for the following inspection tasks successfully.

  • Oil pipeline inspections
  • Gas pipeline inspections
  • Solar installation inspections
  • Detection of the spread of algae
  • Power line / cable inspections
  • Cooling tower inspections
  • Forestry Critical infrastructure inspections
  • Wind turbine inspections
  • Bridge inspections
  • Counting of animal populations
  • Train line inspections
  • Monument inspections
  • Radiation measurement
  • Radiation monitoring
