Enterprise Equipment adds Reliability

Enterprise Equipment adds Reliability

Business Information Modeling, Construction, Inspection Services
[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

Construction
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

Data Drives the World

Construction, Inspection Services
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, Construction, Homeowner, Inspection Services, Real Estate
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

Construction, Inspection Services, Real Estate
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, Construction, Inspection Services
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.”

Drones in Construction

Business Information Modeling, Construction, Inspection Services
Construction has never been visibly progressive, but the industry is changing, riding the digital wave. Drones are now one of the numerous innovative technologies that are transforming the construction process. Businesses have fortified their infrastructure and have revamped their business operations utilizing advanced data analytics and images captured by drones. By using drone technology, data can be collected via a drone in the air, and users can create 2D and 3D maps, collect altitude data, and gather volumetric measurements to support better planning and develop projects. This also helps keep projects on track when job site appears to be a risk to humans; drones can fly in and perform inspections, spending less time. Yet another reason for the adoption of drones in construction space is the economic benefit. Surveying a…

FAA Adds Nine to LAANC

Construction, Inspection Services, Real Estate
The five-month onboarding process that began in April resulted in nine new LAANC partners – Aeronyde, Airbus, AiRXOS, Altitude Angel, Converge, DJI, KittyHawk, UASidekick and Unifly. The nine join five companies – AirMap, Harris Corp., Project Wing, Skyward and Thales Group – that have already met the technical and legal requirements to provide LAANC Services. LAANC uses airspace data, including UAS facility maps, which shows the maximum altitude around airports where the FAA may authorize operations under Part 107 in controlled airspace. The program gives drone operators the ability to interact with industry developed applications and obtain near real-time authorization from the FAA. LAANC, a foundation for developing the Unmanned Aircraft Systems Traffic Management System (UTM),is now available at nearly 300 FAA air traffic facilities across the country, covering approximately…
