At EagleEye Geospatial we believe that delivering quality data to our clients begins with using the latest technology available throughout the acquisition process. Our team is continually researching and testing new equipment to ensure that we stay on the cutting edge of our industry. As EagleEye has grown as a company, along with the size and detail of our projects, we have expanded our fleet of UAVs and manned aircraft in preparation to handle any size project. This commitment to meet any client’s needs has resulted in having multiple quad platforms, fixed wing platforms, and manned aircraft platforms. With this range of platforms we are positioned to handle projects that range from a few acres for site specific analysis, to thousands of square miles. With the capability of collecting resolutions that range from 1.5cm to 25cm. The majority of our platforms are equipped with PPK equipment which enables us to offer survey grade accuracy for detailed mapping, planning, and other geospatial analysis. For our platforms that are not equipped with PPK we utilize the latest survey equipment to shoot GCPs (Ground Control Points) which allow us to apply the appropriate corrections to our imagery in order to deliver survey grade data to our clients. Often times we are faced with projects that utilize multiple platforms and acquisition methods on one project to achieve our clients goals. All of our pilots hold a FAA Part 107 license and have conducted hundreds of training hours to ensure the integrity and quality of our data. Below are specific details of our platforms and their various applications and benefits.
Quad Based Platforms
Our quad based platforms offer the most versatility of all our platforms which make them perfect for site specific projects that require high resolution data in close proximity to structures. These platforms are equipped with the best proximity sensors and avoidance technology on the market which allow for detailed inspections and imagery acquisition when operating in a limited flight area. With multiple sensors and gimbal packages we are able to gather a variety of data ranging from high resolution imagery, video, and thermal all from one sensor. Our quad platforms can be flown autonomously through pre-determined flight plans or through a remote control by our experienced pilots.
Fixed Wing Platforms
Our fixed wing platforms are utilized when faced with a project that requires survey grade accuracy for precision mapping and planning. These platforms are utilized in the acquisition of projects of 10 square miles or less, and thrive in our small to medium sized projects. All of our fixed wings UAVs are equipped with PPK software which enables us to gather 3cm or greater resolution imagery with an accuracy of two times the GSD (ground sampling distance). These platforms are all autonomously controlled from pre-determined flight plans under that watchful eye of our licensed UAS pilots.
EagleEye’s manned aircraft has been vital in our expansion into the large acquisition of aerial imagery. With the capability to acquire any size project without the needed permissions that come with UAVs, we are able to service any size project for our clients. Our manned aircraft is equipped with high powered cameras and sensors that acquire imagery from high altitudes; therefore, allowing us to collect hundreds of square miles in a short time period. Our manned aircraft are able to collect resolutions that range from 5cm to 25cm with an accuracy that is 3 feet or better.
