Remotely Piloted Aircraft Systems (RPAS) are commonly known as Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV) or drones. RPAS allows aerial data to be acquired in a way that is safer and more efficient than traditional methods.
MapStat uses a mix of RPAS technology, both fixed wing and multirotor, to ensure that the right craft is chosen for the job.
With a professional attitude, we are experienced in conducting risk assessments and safety is of the utmost importance.
MapStat pilots are certified by the Civil Aviation Safety Authority (CASA) and MapStat is a member of the Australian Association for Unmanned Systems (AAUS).
Acquiring high resolution imagery and accurate data.
And much more.
Delivering accurate and relevant data outputs.
We can also process your existing data sets to extract extra information by combining with new data.
Analysis of data to meet your needs.
Deliverables can be provided in the most suitable format to meet your needs This may be anything from a Word document to a product that fit your mapping and reporting requirements.
UAV/UAS is unmanned aerial vehicle or systems, and are commonly known as drones. CASA refers to them as Remotely Piloted Aircraft (RPA), or Remotely Piloted Aircraft System (RPAS). Essentially, they are an aircraft that may be either multirotor, fixed wing, helicopter or even a balloon. Regardless of the craft they are wirelessly controlled through a ground control system that is operated by a person who ultimately decides what the craft will do.
Utilising remotely piloted aircraft gives the ability to collect high resolution imagery, either standard RGB or multispectral more cost effectively than ever before. It is safer, faster and offers a broad range of insights that would not be possible without this technology.
MapStat flies multirotor and fixed wing crafts which can carry multiple sensors simultaneously. We will choose the best craft to meet your requirements.
Our rotary craft can fly for approximately 40 minutes and fixed wing for approximately 90 minutes per flight. We carry additional batteries and have the ability to recharge batteries not in use between flight as required. This effectively allows us to fly for all daylight hours.
Currently MapStat is permitted to fly within line of sight.
Absolutely, CASA has established strict rules and guidelines around their operation whereby the safety of the general public and traditional aircraft are a priority. MapStat always operates within the law when undertaking surveys.
We will work with you to ensure you get the most cost effective solution for your needs and not upsell you additional services that you don’t need. Projects that involve larger areas or projects requiring ongoing monitoring will attract a better rate.
Yes, MapStat carries all the required insurances to do the job and can provide a letter of coverage as required.
Australia wide. MapStat staff have experience working in some of the most remote regions of Australia and are equipped to be self-sufficient for extended periods of time, so you can be assured that we can safely undertake your project no matter where it is.
