Images taken by drones can also be used to create accurate maps of the accident scene

Uncategorized
The NTSB has been quick to embrace drone technology. Bill English, Investigator in Charge of the Atlas crash, developed the NTSB’s Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS) program several years ago when he realized the benefits drones could bring to accident site documentation. “We have a very good solid bedrock foundation for how to conduct robust investigations,” English says, “That foundation lets us use cutting edge technologies like this to improve the quality and efficiency of safety work.” Drones are able to gather high resolution images, preserving perishable evidence like ground scars, presence of hazardous materials, and the position of control surfaces, which can get moved as wreckage is collected. Aerial photographs have always been an important feature of major mishap investigations, but drones make those photographs faster, easier, and safer to…

Florida Department of Transportation’ Palm Bay Interstate 95 Exit #166

Florida Department of Transportation’ Palm Bay Interstate 95 Exit #166

Construction, Infrastructure
Palm Bay Florida has been planning the Heritage Parkway for decades. The FDOT is nearing completion of access to the Parkway by adding Exit #166 to Interstate 95 near the town of Micco. This video progress survey shows the current state on the second stage of the Parkway system. The first stage, now open, runs from Malabar road north to state road 192 with plans to end at SR518 in Melbourne Florida. The entire project will allow residents of the Northwest section of the City an escape or evacuation route in times of emergencies such as Hurricanes. Currently residents are funneled into Minton road, a road that congests with normal rush hour traffic. Video of Interstate Exit #166 progress by FDOT https://youtu.be/9LIYEYQsrJI

Repeatable Data with precise positioning

Repeatable Data with precise positioning

Business Information Modeling
D-RTK GNSS with DATALINK PRO 900 (GPS + GLONASS) provides for Repeatable Data with precise positioning. Precise positioning of one centimeter vertically and horizontally is made possible through dynamic differential technology. This extreme accuracy allows for the creation of repeatable flight routes that provide reliable and valuable visual data that can be essential for commercial and industrial scenarios. Flight plans or Missions are saved in program for repeatable on site accuracy from week to week (or stages of completion). progress report, verify status prior to inspection, equipment or materials on site validation, Verify Contractor stages of completion, Site Photogrammetry 3D models for measurement, Volumetric measurement; The list to cost and Time savings goes on. True Heading; Dual antennas create heading references that are significantly more accurate than possible with a single compass…

Enterprise Equipment adds Reliability

Enterprise Equipment adds Reliability

Business Information Modeling
[gallery ids="388,387" type="rectangular"] The Matrice 210 RTK Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (Drone) and the RTK Ground Station provide centimeter level precision to Flights. The M210-RTK can support two cameras such as the Zenmuse X5s 21 megapixel camera and the Z30 with it's 30x optical zoom. Ground and Utility Inspections are safer, faster and more accurate than when using previous UAV's. Adding flight autonomy with it's Cendence / Crystalsky remote controller one can take multiple inspection flights of the same area repeatedly without having to guess where previous starting points were. It's programmed in and ready for multiple use applications. The SDK and PWM with power port adds flexibility to programming and equipment that can  be flown. Put it to work on your next project.

UAV’s in Construction

Uncategorized
Drones are already making a difference at construction sites. Companies are collecting data to monitor progress, optimize job reports and complete many other construction functions by deploying these small, unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV). The potential of drone technology is hard to overstate. In addition to collecting data at an unprecedented level of quality and pace, organizations are using drones to improve worker safety, all while simultaneously reducing costs. - Construction Business Owner https://youtu.be/ZhDzB1NOX-k

Equipment: Mavic 2 Pro

Uncategorized
The Mavic 2 Pro with it's Hasselblad L1D-20c Camera has been added to our arsenal of Equipment. The Mavic 2 Pro allows us to get closer to a project without the UAV being a distraction to the site. The Mavic 2 Pro provides 20 mega pixel shots with it's 1" sensor and Hasselblad color profile. Closer and more quite than full size Enterprise Unmanned Aerial Vehicles will allow us to get the shots and video our customers need without being a distraction to the jobsite.

Data Drives the World

Uncategorized
We live in a data-driven world, and the proper use of data offers invaluable insights, allowing users to make informed decisions far more efficiently. This notion is especially true for those working in construction, as details are everything when it comes to a building project, leaving little room for mistakes. Any slight miscalculation can result in a faulty structure that must be torn down and rebuilt, wasting time and money. AI’s presence on construction sites is all but eliminating many common errors while also reducing risks. With powerful, AI-supported cameras on-site, project managers are able to get real-time visuals, allowing them to not only see when a mistake is being made, but also to predict mistakes and prevent them from occurring. The ability to anticipate problem areas keeps projects on…

Melbourne Airport not a part of FAA LAANC system

Melbourne Airport not a part of FAA LAANC system

Business Information Modeling, Homeowner
Orlando Melbourne International Airport is not currently operational for Unmanned Aircraft Vehicles under the FAA LAANC ( Low Altitude Authorization and Notification Capability ) system. As such, all UAV operations must be conducted under the FAA's part 107 rules as President Trump signed into Law the FAA Re-Authorization Act this week. This means all Unmanned Aircraft Vehicles must be operated by FAA Certified Pilots flying FAA Registered Aircraft in conjunction with FAA Facility Maps. Any other Flight operations constitute a violation of the Law and carry Fines as well as the possible loss of the UAV to deterrent services. Above And Beyond Global, LLC. Flight operations are carried out by fully Registered UAV's and FAA Certified Pilots operating under FAA Airspace Authorization. We encourage Clients to request to see FAA…

FAA Re-authorization Act Requires Pilot certification

Uncategorized
The newly signed FAA Authorization Act requires every Pilot, even recreational pilots to be Certified to fly and their aircraft to be registered. The repeal of 336 means that the FAA now has the right to regulate model aircraft, including recreational drones. Section 349 proposed rules include: 1- Aircraft MUST be flown strictly for recreation. 2- They must be flown within a community-based Organization's (CBO) set of guidelines. 3- Must be flown within visual line of sight. (VLOS) 4- Must stay out of the way of manned aircraft. 5- Must be flown in Class G airspace under 400 feet AGL or have authorization. 6- Must be registered and marked. You can do that HERE: https://faadronezone.faa.gov/#/ 7- The operator must pass an Aeronautical Knowledge Test Traffic management software and the right…

Drone Data in Construction

Drone Data in Construction

Business Information Modeling
During construction launches, having a drone monitor progress on a daily basis ensures on-site situational awareness, so that management and project teams are aware of real-time advancements, setbacks, and potential risks, allowing them to make informed decisions based on a comprehensive set of tracking data. Aerial data collected by drones is also used to document project progress, make comparisons to design plans, and later generate as-built drawings. Gary Pille, Project Executive of Dickies Arena,  “Using the drones has enabled our superintendents to view the installation of piers, utilities, underground MEP, etc., and compare to contract CDs, which means image overlay on design plans on a daily basis… and allows us to detect any layout / routing deficiencies much sooner than before.”
