UK’s Widest Selection of Commercial Drones


Unmatched accuracy

Discover the transformative power of drone technology in the field of surveying and construction. Our comprehensive drone solutions are designed to make your operations safer, faster, and more cost-effective.

Manual methods in public safety are often limited by physical constraints, high costs, and time-consuming preparations. Drones enable rapid deployment in emergencies, offering perspectives and data previously unattainable, all while ensuring greater safety and efficiency.

Reduced Operational Cost

Drones significantly lower the expenses associated with traditional methods. They eliminate the need for costly manned aircraft, reduce labor costs, and minimise the time and resources required for setup and operation. This enables more frequent, efficient aerial surveillance and better resource allocation for emergency response and critical situations.

Enhanced Safety

Drones provide a safer alternative to manual operations, especially in hazardous or inaccessible environments. They allow for remote surveillance and inspection, reducing the risk to human life in dangerous situations like natural disasters, dangerous landscapes, or hazardous material incidents.

Improved Efficiency and Speed

Drones offer rapid deployment and faster data collection. They can quickly cover large areas, providing real-time information and imagery, which is crucial in time-sensitive situations such as search and rescue operations, emergency response, and law enforcement activities.

Access to Inaccessible Areas

Drones can easily navigate and gather data in areas that are otherwise difficult or impossible to reach through conventional means. This capability is particularly valuable in complex urban environments, rugged terrains, or during events that render areas inaccessible.

Reduced operational cost, enhanced safety, improved efficiency, and access to inaccessible areas make drones indispensable tools in surveying and construction. They streamline data collection and site analysis, ultimately optimising project workflows and outcomes.


Drones can significantly reduce operational costs in various industries by replacing labor-intensive and expensive manual tasks. They require lower overhead, fuel, and maintenance expenses compared to traditional methods, making them a cost-effective solution.

Enhanced Safety

Drones can be used in hazardous or hard-to-reach areas, reducing the risk to human workers. Furthermore, they serve as invaluable assets in inaccessible areas, including environmentally sensitive conservation sites, where they can conduct surveys without causing any harm to the fragile ecosystem. The integration of advanced sensors like LiDAR empowers drones to penetrate dense foliage, unveiling critical insights otherwise concealed from view.

Improved Efficiency and Speed

Drone data collection is five times faster than traditional methods, cuts down on manpower, and eliminates the need for extensive Ground Control Points. Drones can complete tasks more quickly than humans and traditional machinery, which increases operational efficiency and reduces project timelines. They can cover large areas or conduct inspections with speed and precision.

Data Collection and Analysis

Produce detailed 3D models and high-resolution maps swiftly, even in challenging or hard-to-reach areas with centimeter-level accuracy. Drones can capture high-quality data, including images, videos, and sensor readings. This data is valuable for decision-making, analysis, and modelling in various scenarios.

We LiDAR scanned Conisbrough Viaduct with the Emesent Hovermap


Traditional Surveying v Drone Surveying

We put the Hovermap through its paces by mapping Conisbrough Viaduct earlier this month. Conisbrough Viaduct is over 150ft high and 1500ft in length and would have traditionally taken days to be surveyed by laser scanners.

We’ve created a list of the top 5 payloads that are compatible with the DJI Matrice 300 RTK that will totally revolutionise the way that you capture data.

Our surveying expert James Pick takes you through how adopting drone technology can slash time on sight and sky rocket your ROI within the surveying field. By using drones to compliment existing surveying techniques, you can collect data 60-80% faster than your current methods.

Use Cases


Drones can survey expansive job sites, offering contractors detailed, precise data before they go on site This capability provides firms with a competitive advantage right from the bidding phase.


Drones enhance client trust by showcasing aerial project updates, especially when site visits aren't possible, ensuring efficient investment use. They also bolster team synergy, providing real-time data to all stakeholders, and compile a documentary record for future reference.

DJI M30t firefighting


Drones streamline structural inspections by capturing high-resolution images and thermal data to identify heat leaks and electrical faults. They expedite maintenance checks on large-scale constructions, transforming days of manual surveying into hours of aerial analysis, thus bolstering client trust.


Drones streamline stockpile management by quickly and safely gathering accurate photogrammetry and LiDAR data. Advanced software processes this data into maps and models for precise volume calculations, as detailed in this guide.
