Thermal Imaging and Building Inspections

Thermal Imaging has many applications and the construction industry is beginning to harness its potential by using it during both construction and renovation processes to find faults and to establish compatibility with environmental standards. Roof inspections are a key component of this and the attachment of the thermal imaging camera to a drone or UAV makes these possible with minimal setup, safety risk, or danger of [...]

Drone Uses at Solid Waste Disposal Facilities

Drone flights over solid waste landfill sites are fast becoming accepted as an efficient way to conduct surveys over terrain that is often difficult and/or dangerous to navigate on foot. Couple this with the fact that you can put a drone in the sky for a lot less of a financial outlay than an airplane and making the most of this relatively new technology just makes good commercial sense. [...]

Drones and Flood Water Management

Drones can prove to be a valuable tool in flood management, an increasing concern in the UK after the spate of flooding across the country in recent years, assisting both with standard and thermal imaging. UAVs can provide real-time imagery for fast and accurate reactions to a flood situation.  Also, each drone flight is tailored to the exact customer requirements so you can be sure that you will receive [...]

Old 1950 Landfill Site Thermal Imaging Inspection

The build-up of gases such as methane in landfill sites is a common problem for councils & landowners, particularly if the land is identified for development. Drilling boreholes to relieve the gas build-up, along with 'flash burning' the methane is a significant undertaking, so the identification of the heat spots and potential underground fires is critical. The use of drones to complete the survey and land inspection using thermal [...]

The Energy Efficiency of your Home

A recent BBC news report states that more than two thirds of UK homes are failing to meet energy efficiency targets which means that more than 12 million homes fall below the C grade on Energy Performance Certficates (EPCs). Read the BBC Energy Efficiency Article Thermal imaging of your home is a fast and effective way to check your energy efficiency as areas of poor [...]

Thermal Solar Farm Inspection with Drones

Drone Media Imaging were delighted to be contracted to carry out a drone thermal inspection of a large solar farm in the South West of England.  Thermal inspection of solar farms by drone can be an extremely cost effective way of assessing production efficiency. The previous inspection of this large multi field solar farm had been at ground level and an engineer on foot had spent a week [...]

Solar Panels and Drone Thermal Imaging

Solar energy is becoming more and more popular with both domestic and commercial customers alike. An increasing focus on the perils of climate change has led to a surge in interest regarding renewable energy sources and you don't have to travel far before you find roof mounted solar panels.   With such interest showing no signs of slowing, solar panels are bound to become more and more part of [...]

Thermal Imagery – From the Military to Your Business

New technologies seem to be developed at a borderline alarming pace but many of them remain out of reach of anyone but the governments and militaries of the world until popular applications are found and mass production begins. Thermal imaging is one such example. Developed for military use as early as 1958 in order to be able to see targets in the darkness or across the smoke of a [...]

Using Drones to Inspect Solar Panels on a Roof

Solar panel inspections can be a time intensive exercise when you are using a ground operative to check each panel individually in a solar farm field. However, when the solar panels are installed on a pitched roof, the problems of checking panel health become compounded. An operative who is required to check roof mounted panels with a hand held thermal imaging device will need either scaffolding or an elevated [...]
