Environmental Monitoring

Pegasus offers quick, easy and cost-effective insights on a variety of applications that impact the health and well-being of our environment.

Monitoring the Health of the Environment

From glacial modelling to coastal erosion tracking, species identification, vegetation health of forests and population assessments, we collect intelligent, actionable data to ensure your project moves forward. Our data is processed using Esri, to make sure your data makes sense for your team. Through the use of multiple sensors such as LiDAR, Photogrammetry, Full Motion Video, multispectral imaging and proprietary sensors, we can support your project by providing intelligent data to better understand and protect our environment.

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.

Photogrammetry

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. 

Multispectral

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.

GHG Statement

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.
