Aerial Survey

and Data Capture

Aerial Survey & Data Capture

McDermott Aviation like staying up to date with technology, which is why we can offer the latest equipment and the ‘know how’ in Aerial Survey & Data Operations.

We can provide Aerial Photography, Multispectral Imaging, Aerial surveying for fire fighting, and Aerial mapping.

Photography and Videography

Aerial Photography and Videography is still a large part of our operation, even with the introduction of Remotely Piloted Aircraft or Drones. Our fleet of helicopters allow for much better equipment to be utilised ensuring the clearest images or video.

Site Survey

We can provide plotting/GIS data capture and mapping in any format. The report for the client can include attributes/comments with the imagery to show details that are found during the survey. We can provide accurate mapping/plotting of bushwalking tracks, roads etc, which can then be plotted directly onto aerial photos/maps.

Mining and exploration also widely employ our services for vegetation surveys, erosion surveys, and electromagnetic surveys. With the vast range of aircraft types, we have aircraft that are suitable for all of our client requirements, from small to large capacity aircraft, and of course twin engine aircraft of a variety of sizes also

Imagery/Data Capture

McDermott Aviation have been instrumental in the development of the world first imagery system for the detection of Red Imported Fire Ant colonies in South East Queensland, the same technology is being used in Texas after the ground breaking development and trials conducted in Australia by McDermott Aviation and Outline Global.

Gas Detection

Infrared cameras are becoming increasingly more important in many different aspects of the aviation business. The systems utilised by us are capable of carrying out many different tasks due to the many payloads carried – these include Short Wave Infrared, Medium Wave Infrared, High Resolution, Laser Pointer, Rangefinder, etc… Tasks such as Search and Rescue, through to Fire Mapping can all easily be carried out. Law Enforcement type operations can also be accommodated with the Night Sun Searchlight being integrated with the Camera System. For any further details you would like to know, please contact us.
