Drone Thermography

The cost effective solution to infrastructure maintenance

In times past, you had to carry out a series of on-roof inspections and allocate enormous personnel resources to perform an infrared scan of a large-scale project. Fast-forward to today, all you have to do is turn to IRIS and allow up to 2 nights until we take care of everything.

Aerial thermography is the recording of roof temperature variations from above

As its name implies, aerial thermography is the recording of roof temperature variations from above using advanced infrared cameras. Thermal images are combined with GPS data and CAD drawings for the more accurate detection of the areas where moisture is trapped. These insights are then used to draw up a comprehensive report on thermal anomalies found within a range of buildings.

Why are aerial infrared inspections so cost-effective?

If your project involves multiple roofs that need to be inspected, scanning them one by one will take too long – to say nothing of how many specialists will have to be engaged. Airborne imagery is the best alternative as the recording can be performed over a night (depending on the area under inspection) and at low operation costs. Thus, it will save you a great deal of time and money.

What’s more, aerial imaging can be beneficial to you when it comes to unbiased roof inspection. IRIS may act as a disinterested third party to assess the condition of your roof to facilitate your decision-making on further maintenance.

1. Drone high voltage applications

There are two major applications IRIS focuses on:

Drone technology is rapidly becoming a vital solution for electrical utilities looking to efficiently collect crucial data of their 24/7/365 critical operations. Drones can provide access in difficult and hard to reach locations and allow a much closer visual and thermal view all while reducing costs and human risk.

Drones are fast, agile and extremely effective in determining minor to severe anomalies in our aging
high voltage distribution system throughout Canada.

IRIS provides an elegant solution to the safety problems posed by the elevated high voltage lines and other restricted access such as substations.

2. Drone Building Sciences Applications

It’s all about efficiency,
safety and comfort

Predictive maintenance programs are vitally important in
the area of building science in order to achieve greater energy efficiency, and worker and tenant safety and comfort.

Thermal drone technology reveals anomalies efficiently
and safely in commercial & residential real estate such as:

  • Moisture Penetration
  • Insulation Voids
  • Air Leakage

These factors can lead to energy losses that result in overworked HVAC systems which can cause substantially higher utility costs. Or, in some cases, potentially disastrous situations that building owners and insurance providers dread.

Insurance providers are increasingly embracing and demanding thermographic inspections to obtain a clear picture of a building’s performance and liabilities that could lead to property damage, injury or, at worst, loss of life.

IRIS is a trusted national supplier of predictive maintenance services to real estate and facility management companies including Oxford Properties Group, Bentall Kennedy, Brookfield Properties Inc., CBRE, and many more.

About our drone technology

We perform our inspections with the most powerful, versatile technology on the market. The refined airframe and propulsion system design gives the pilot a more efficient, stable flight even in the harshest weather conditions.

The Matrice 300 RTK is compatible with the H20T quad sensor equipped with a 640×512 resolution radiometric thermal sensor, hybrid optical zoom and up to 200x max zoom.

The fourth sensor on the H20T is a laser rangefinder with a range of 3-1200m. With this superior technology rest assured no anomalies can hide from IRIS.
