On this blog, we’ve quite often looked at the difference UAV technology is predicted to make in industries such as construction and insurance.  However, the drone’s potential isn’t limited to dry land with many maritime and offshore companies beginning to look at how they can capture and utilise their own corner of this emerging industry. One of the main fields in which drones are being deployed at sea (as they are on land) is for carrying out of marine inspections. The Royal Navy is making use of these high portable cameras to inspect their vessels [...]

Wind Turbine Inspections by the UK's leading drone pilots At the end of 2017 there were nearly 345,000 wind turbines operating worldwide and it’s fair to assume that this number has increased since then. Each must be regularly inspected and maintained in order to keep it at optimum efficiency.

The requirement for high quality cameras, craft and licensed experienced pilots means that much of this inspection work is outsourced – [...]

So many people are enjoying flying drones as a hobby now, along with those using them commercially, that they are an increasingly common sight in our skies. However, negative press coverage, especially around the Christmas time Gatwick incident, means that people can be feeling very suspicious if they see one over or around their property. While this is understandable, the message here from DSR is that if you see a drone in the sky, don't automatically assume that it is up to no good. There are hundreds of safe and legal drone ops out [...]
