Aerial Thermal & Multispectral Imaging

Altitude Imaging provides aerial thermal imaging services for asset inspection, survey and mapping using professional radiometric thermal cameras and drones.

Our services safely and quickly detect hotspots and areas with abnormal temperatures using our drone thermal imaging service.

Utilising FLIR 640 resolution thermal cameras combined with 20.8MP to 42MP colour cameras we deliver outstanding high resolution inspection imagery. Our inspection equipment is fully gyro stabilised and captures radiometric images and video.

Incorporating aerial survey and mapping techniques, we can identify heat sources over large areas. Ideal for applications in the coal industry, our thermal surveys can provide highly accurate information with georeferenced thermal orthomosaics and heat maps.

Using professional UAV thermal imaging equipment our team delivers high-resolution thermal and digital photographic records in either unedited or fully processed formats with inspection reports.

Altitude Imaging’s Thermal Inspection Service offers a productive and safe way to rapidly and frequently inspect assets at height.

Features and Benefits
