Pegasus performs aerial inspection of asset wellbeing, using high quality sensors and proprietary hardware and software, collecting the most relevant and time-sensitive data for your company’s needs.
Being sensor agnostic, Pegasus can interchange the types of data being collected for your needs. Some of the standard collections are FMV, LiDAR, Multispectral, Radiometric, Infrared, Photogrammetry. The approach we take to asset inspection and monitoring increases the quality data and decision making your team can provide, removes delays caused by access issues, and brings safety benefits for our clients by minimizing the number of ‘boots on the ground’.
Sensors Available for Data Collection
Full Motion Video (FMV)
Full Motion Video (FMV) is at the forefront of the modern Intelligence Surveillance Reconnaissance (ISR) process. It combines real-time High Definition (HD) video with metadata to deliver rich context to any scenario. FMV provides relevant, detailed, in-depth information ready for ingestion into existing GIS workflows to deliver powerful insights from airborne platforms.
Light Detection and Ranging (LiDAR)
Light Detection and Ranging (LiDAR), is a remote sensing method that combines pulsed lasers with positional data to generate precise, 3D models of terrain, objects and key features. LiDAR has numerous applications for forestry, agriculture, mining, surveying and infrastructure applications, including for emergency management and disaster reconnaissance.
Radiometric sensing, or thermography, uses a thermal camera to measure an object’s temperature by detecting the intensity of infrared signals being received. Radiometry can provide more information-rich data than daylight/RGB images; therefore, thermal data is able to inform more intelligent and actionable decisions, as well as be used across a variety of applications.
Multispectral sensors measure the electromagnetic spectrum in discrete, discontinuous bands. The different wavelengths of light collected are stitched together to create a geographically accurate mosaic of the environment. They are instrumental in plant health and management by identifying nutrient deficiencies, pest infestation, water quality, soil content (minerals) and many other applications.
Combining positional data with high-resolution airborne imagery is used to produce georeferenced orthomosaic maps for use in various GIS and information applications. Captured with autonomous aircraft, photogrammetry enables the classification of imagery to determine plant species, health (using NIR sensors) and can also be used for cut and fill analysis for volumetrics.
The need for information is only increasing: data collection should be frequent, low cost and with very little impact on the environment. The aircraft that Pegasus develops and flies emit 100-200x less GHG emissions than the standard helicopters currently being used for data collection. Move your company towards a greener path by choosing technology that disrupts the status quo and contributes to the fight against climate change.
