Currently, we have 7 main drones that we operate out of a few Strategic offices. This number is expanding in 2020, along with the number of RPAS pilots at SNRC that are certified for Advanced Operations in Canada. Some of our drones can operate in inclement weather, which is important when travelling to project sites here in Canada and internationally.
While it’s exciting to talk about capable and fancy drones, we have learned that the professional experience of the drone operator is a crucial component. Interpreting what the drone sees, having a vision for the data, and capturing the right scenes and metrics is best accomplished with seasoned field staff.
