Affordable UAV for aerial environmental monitoring Victoria

Drones offer affordable, quality environmental monitoring

Drones are fast becoming an essential tool for environmental monitoring including flora and fauna monitoring, back burns, inspection of fire and flood defences, and support for our emergency services like CFA, SES, MFB and Victoria Police. They offer quick, economical and safe deployment, a high level of precision and detail and real-time information transmission.  With their agility and quality imaging abilities they are invaluable as a tool for a wide range of environmental monitoring tasks.

Key advantages

Quality sensors

Our drones carry a diverse range of environmental monitoring sensors including

Drones are ideal for jobs that are dirty, dark, dangerous or too inaccessible for human or other forms of monitoring. They are not a panacea for all requirements, but offer an alternative to risking life or injury – or to paying for manned aircraft for traditional data collection.


Quality data

Environmental monitoring can require constantly updated imagery often covering the same ground. Our drones have the ability to follow the exact flight path over-and-over and capture precisely the same photograph.   Combined with our analytics services, this provides some of the most accurate data available today.

Emergency services support

Uaviation maintains a rapid response Ground Control Station(GCS) on 24 hour standby.van

This GCS is manned by two controllers and one safety officer. It can be deployed on demand throughout Victoria and can operate in a remote location for 21 consecutive hours.

The Ground Control Station vehicle is equipped with:

Applications for the rapid response Ground Control Station include:

Drones are proving an excellent resource for surveying back-burn areas. They can be used for remote sensing tasks such as periodic inspections of fuel loads, active monitoring of back-burns, monitoring and support of fire crews. They can also be used for making flood damage assessments and identifying changes to river banks, cliffs and beaches.
