Coastal Surveys

The coast, by its very nature, is a complex and dangerous type of landscape to monitor. Drones can help to minimize the risk of a costal survey, capturing millions of datapoints in a single flight. The complex structure of natural stone is most accurately captured through multiple flight plans utilizing various camera angles to capture features from every possible angle, fusing together to create a complete dataset. This dataset is turned into a 3D digitized version of the real world feature. Repeating this process over time creates an erosion monitoring campaign, providing invaluable information about rehabilitation and monitoring hazards.

Using fixed wing drones we can regularly survey large beaches to provide detailed imagery, settlement of sand, and erosion of dunes/sand banks. Benchmarking successive surveys provides data insights to the natural changes of the beach over time, and where/how to rehabilitate the beach.


At Eiredrone we use a range of sensors to provide various forestry metrics to our customers. See below for general metrics from each type of sensor:

- RGB Imagery: High resolution cameras provide clear and concise forestry condition/boundary maps

- Multispectral Imagery: Plant health information, stand counts, and invasive species identification

- Lidar Sensor: Determine multiple 3D metrics such as canopy height, trunk diameter, variation in tree size    and density across compartments, and acquire high accuracy digital terrain models to identify drainage furrows and ridging rows.

Combining various sensor options with either multirotor or fixed wing drones allows Eiredrone to tailor forestry monitoring operations to our clients needs. Areas can range from just a few acres to thousands of acres, across rough and unforgiving terrain. We use the most advanced terrain following flight planning software, making mountainside forestry surveying safe, accurate, and repeatable.

Water Sampling

Traditionally water sampling requires a boat, crew, and safety equipment. This is both time consuming and expensive. Using the latest in drone technology, we can collect water samples in difficult to reach areas. The sampling tube can hold up to one litre of sample water per flight.

True Terrain Following (TTF) is used to ensure the stable flight of the drone whilst flying at low altitudes over the water. The messenger release device is controlled by the onboard computer, allowing a fully automated process of remote water sampling.

Habitat Surveys

Aerial surveys cover vast areas of various habitats without the need to damage or interact with the habitat itself. High resolution cameras make it possible to identify invasive species, wildfire damage, and track habitat rehabilitation progress. We can map thousands of acres in a single day using fixed wing drones enabled with RTK/PPK capabilities.
