Core Services

HD Imaging

Timely, Actionable Information

  • Overhead real time observation of worksites provides highly detailed facility intelligence.
  • Enable NRT tracking of critical equipment, inventory control, and central monitoring of complex and geographically disperse worksites.
  • Drone inspections require 75% less time and manpower than traditional methods and dramatically reduce safety related losses – increasing ROI.
  • Timely, actionable, and accurate information increases efficiency, supports planning, and improves safety.

Agriculture/Vegetation Inspection

Efficient Day-to-Day Management

  • Equipped with multi-spectral sensors and the Normalized Difference Vegetation Index (NDVI) algorithm.
  • Provide agri-business leaders, farmers, and landscapers needed insights to identify stressed areas, maximize yields, and more efficiently deploy resources.
  • Overfly and analyze hundreds of acres in less time than a ground inspector covers a single acre.
  • Provide critical analysis enabling effective day-to-day management as well as long term planning.

Incident Response

Real Time Crisis Support for Decision Makers

  • Tiered response framework allows flexible response.
  • The Cobalt Incident Response Team (IRT) can be on-sight in a matter of hours.
  • Support decision makers by producing 3D and HD maps of affected areas, supporting search and rescue efforts with NRT (HD and thermal) imaging, and providing detailed post-incident property and infrastructure damage assessments.
  • IRT members are skilled drone pilots with military and/or first responder experience, HAZMAT certified, and expert operators in austere locations.

3D Imaging/Volumetric Survey

Precision Manpower and Resource Management

  • Provide up-to-date imagery of worksites including construction zones, quarries, and environmental clean-up projects.
  • Contour data sets for topographical data modeling in formats tailored to specific mission requirements including Digital Elevation Models (DEM), Point Cloud files, and individual HD images.
  • Provide precise material measurement and earthwork volumes for conversion into weights for invoicing, project management, and inventory control.
  • Cut/fill analyses to track project progress and completion.
