High-Resolution Imagery / Video

An inspection is only as good as the information that can be taken away from it and passed on to stakeholders. With proprietary inspection reports maintained by Professional Engineers, and FAA Remote Pilots capturing imagery with high-resolution sensors, ARE provides you with a crisp, clear look at your assets, in an organized, deliverable, and customized way to give you the most important information upfront.

LiDAR Scan

ARE provides LiDAR scans using high-quality sensors on top-of-the-line drones with an accuracy of 2-5 cm.

  • We process the point cloud
  • Classify it to your needs
  • Store it for future reference
  • Provide information in an easy to use format

Thermal Imagery

Infrared cameras can tell a different story than a visual inspection. Using the industry-standard FLIR camera system, thermal images can find hotspots and minute details often not apparent to the naked eye. ARE’s certified thermographers and remote pilots can augment your asset inspections by capturing:

  • Broken cells in a solar panel
  • Temperature anomalies on a transmission line
  • A leaky roof top
  • Concrete delamination on a bridge or roadway

I just wanted to express my gratitude for a great job done!  Ian, Tayler & Jeremy  were incredibly personable, knowledgeable, and obviously highly skilled at the tasks at hand.  Ian conducted a thorough safety briefing and took the time to explain all the steps of what the day was going to entail.  The team was always willing to explain the process and answer all our questions throughout the day.  It is very impressive to watch a team that works so well together, executing each step with precision and professionalism.  Their level of communication while executing their tasks was really great to see.  I’ve found in my career even good teams fail to properly communicate while performing their duties. The ARE team obviously understands the potential risks to life and equipment and they take their jobs seriously. I am very excited to see the results of our day yesterday.  I look forward to working with the ARE team in the future.  ARE exceeded my expectations; excellent job!

The inspectors from ARE, Steve Williams and Nick Ray did an excellent Job. They put in long hours and completed a very thorough inspection. They were great to work with and respected all of Amtrak’s safety rules. Also, the guys flying the drones, Nick Ray and Ian Ray did a great job and were very respectful of the No-Fly Zone due to the bald eagle in the area. They had a great work plan and completed it. Hope we can use these guys again in the future.

AirShark has been a leader in promoting the safe and appropriate use of UAS in the national airspace by tackling this issue locally with all stakeholders.

The AirShark flight team helped plan, mobilize, fly, and process a very large data set for 2 bridges carrying Interstate 89 over the White River, the New England Central Railroad, and VT Route 107. The team coordinated with our engineering firm, the state of Vermont, traffic control, sheriff, state police, local farmer, and their own team very well. I would strongly consider using a UAS to support bridge inspections and utilize AirShark for this work in the future.
