Custom Applications

We pride ourselves on being able to offer applications that have never been offered before.  Whether it is a brand new idea, or a high refined custom application for a proven method, Aerial Revolution wants to help our clients to develop their ideas into a turnkey product or service.

The AR Advantage

Aerial Revolution was formed by pilots with over 75 years’ experience, ranging from small Cessna’s all the way to large trans-Atlantic corporate jets.  We know the FAA, and how to navigate the regulations, ensuring that we are operating safely and legally to protect our clients and their assets.  Whether it be acquiring necessary waivers to operate inside restricted airspaces, or ensuring that all of our pilots are properly trained with 107 certifications, Aerial Revolution is dedicated to ensuring our sUAV operations are safe and legal.

As proud as we are of our leading edge adaptation of ever changing FAA regulations, we know that even the most sophisticated sUAV is only as good as the sensors it deploys, and the operator collecting the data from those sensors.  To that end, we always fly dual operator systems.  Meaning we have a pilot who flies the sUAV, and a second technician that operates the gimbal and sensor(s) collecting the required data.  All of our sensor operators are trained in house on the operation of our state of the art systems.  Furthermore, all of our sensor operators are certified to at least Level 1 ASNT-TC1A Infrared Thermography standards.  This NDT standard is recognized worldwide and is an important distinction that separates us from almost all other sUAV companies that employ thermal imaging sensors.

Most of our systems operate multiple sensors at once.  Our thermal imaging systems typically carry a 30x optical zoom video camera, as well as a fully calibrated high resolution radiometric thermal sensor.  We have the ability to manually control all aspects of the thermal and video sensors from the ground.  Where most systems only allow for automatic control of things such as emissivity or level and span, our systems allow our highly trained operators full manual control in-flight.  A small difference that offers HUGE differences in the quality of the data we can provide to our clients.

We know that the sole goal of deploying a drone is to get the needed sensor(s), whether it be still photos, video, LIDAR, or thermal cameras into hard to reach locations to get quality data, quickly, safely and on budget.  We feel that our combination of experience, training and equipment has uniquely positioned us in the market place to provide our clients with an unparalleled level of service and data.
