Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV)
The last decade witnessed a splurging use of UAVs in almost every field, ranging from the military to the consumer and commercial sectors. The capability and accuracy of UAVs in surveillance and site inspection has been overwhelming and Marvel is proud to offer UAV Services with latest cutting edge technology at your disposal. Our UAVs capture accurate and highly detailed Ortho-Photographs, 3D Digital Elevation Models, NDVI maps and more.
Few domains where UAV Services are employed for mapping and surveying:
Asset and Plant Inspections
UAVs reduces the overall cost and downtime, while minimizing risk and providing a stunning high resolution live video of the plant/ asset under survey. Marvel offers UAV services for areas that are hazardous or difficult to access.
Facilities we inspect from UAV Video Feed Data:
- Cooling towers
- Bridges (from above and below)
- Utilities / powerlines
- Chemical plants and refineries
- Industrial roof inspections
- Off shore activities (oil & gas platforms and pipelines)
- Mining infrastructure
- Wind turbines
- Weather & communication towers
- Remote sensing (gas, lasers, magnetometers)
Engineering and Construction
Marvel provides UAV Data Processing services for project progress reporting on large infrastructure projects. Aerial time-lapse reporting is popular feature for many projects. We process photographs from a certain point in the sky and record that GPS location, and to return to that same location at any time. This is an ideal solution for project reporting, as engineers can see their developments grow and expand in a unique way.
Marvel UAV data processing experts inspect thousands of power assets across world each year and provide the electricity companies with a much quicker, safer and more cost effective way to conduct inspections of their power assets.
The benefit of using UAVs for power line inspection is that they can gain access to the otherwise inaccessible areas like fields & densely forested areas and inspect pylons which are several hundred metres high.
The highly detailed views enable us to assess the components up close – without leaving the ground. It completely removes the need to work at heights to conduct inspections.
Mining and Resources
UAV Expertise provides a unique, new method for mining and resource companies to obtain better, more accurate information about their operations. It is also safer, faster and more cost effective.
We deliver a diverse range of services to many of ourresources companies. Our solutions are seen as an ideal tool for mine surveying, as we generally operate from the perimeter of busy, working pits. Our services include:
- Stockpile Calculations
- Open Cut Pit Volumes
- Pit Wall Inspections
- Photogrammetric Applications
- Point Cloud Generation
- Geo-referenced Ortho-Mosaics
- Multispectral Imagery
Marvel provides unique facilities for monitoring & assessing the dynamic environment in a very cost-effective and simple manner. This is particularly useful for the Councils and the Government Departments which need to assess small areas on a regular basis.
Surveying and Mapping
Marvel provides high resolution, low-level survey and mapping services. We provide a wide range of services which include are:
- Crop Yield Estimate
- Crop Health
- NDVI Analysis
- Geo-referenced Ortho-mosaics
- Multispectral Photogrammetric applications
- Thermographic surveys
- Multispectral imagery
- Point cloud generation
- Volumetric Calculations
Thermographic Imagery Processing services are offered to our mining, emergency services and utility clients. We can identify forest and mine fires which are not visible to naked eye using Thermal Imagery Processing obtained from UAV and DTM is also generated from thermal images. We process multispectral cameras for near infrared and radiometric cameras for thermographic work.
