Robotic Systems

We help organisations understand and use advanced robotics systems such as unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) and underwater remotely operated vehicles (ROVs). From conducting ecological surveys in inaccessible locations to obtaining high-quality imagery for mapping, robots have great potential for wildlife and environmental conservation, and we ensure that they help you in the most effective way possible.

We can deploy a fleet of remotely operated vehicles (ROVs) for projects in both freshwater and marine environments. Our ROVs collect temperature and pressure data while live-streaming video back to the surface. They can also be configured to carry payloads that allow them to collect water samples at specific depths, bathymetric data as well as information on a range of environmental variables.

We create customised very high-resolution maps of small areas of land using unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs). These maps can be used to identify tree species, assess carbon sequestration potential and monitor plant health among many other functions, making our UAV services invaluable for any land-management operations. We also use UAVs to provide real-time overwatch and surveillance functions, providing decision makers with an eye in the sky as they manage field operations.
