& Drone Services
At FulcrumAir, some of our most important work is done in conjunction with biologists and environmental conservationists. The application of drones for environmental monitoring is vast and may include everything from habitat monitoring and reclamation to species identification and wildlife management. Drones provide a safer and more efficient alternative to traditional wildlife survey and environmental monitoring methods and allow scientists to reach places previously off-limits. Our drones capture high-quality and comprehensive LiDAR/RGB and thermal images.
Utilizing Drones For Environmental Monitoring
Conserve habitats & protect wildlife
The #1 goal of conservation is to protect and preserve wildlife and the ecosystems they inhabit. Unlike ground vehicles and human traffic, UAVs collect information without leaving a footprint, maintaining the environment's natural beauty.
Protect the lives of in-field personnel
Journeying through rugged terrain and interacting with wild animals puts biologists and conservationists at risk. Drones allow these professionals to collect, review, and analyze all of the necessary data remotely.
Save time through automated change detection
Drones can cover larger areas in less time than biologists on foot. Our advanced imagery analysis allows for automated change detection, highlighting areas where changes have occurred for fast and easy recognition.
Ensure precision, accuracy, and efficiency
High-quality sensing technology has the power to eliminate human error from environmental monitoring calculations. LiDAR/RGB and thermal cameras provide comprehensive and accurate data, even in low-light conditions.
Applications For Drones
Bird Nest Surveys
When vegetation clearing is proposed for any purpose, bird nest surveys are required by law. The aim is to identify and confirm the precise location of active nests of protected and endangered birds. Bird nest surveys help to preserve endangered species and their habitats.
Biologist Approved Drones For Environmental Monitoring
The E2500 series excels in all aspects of performance, including higher top and cruise speeds, longer flight times, heavier lift capacity, and increased maneuverability compared to other UAVs in its weight class. The performance characteristics and range of the E2500 make it an ideal drone for environmental monitoring.
