ISIDrone specializes in conducting Inspections using UAV systems in railways and other transport & building infrastructure.
Our Team works directly with our expect partners from an Inspection company in Italy called ISARail (Independent Safety Assessor in Rail) whom have successfully conducted a number of inspections using Drones in Railways infrastructure in South of Italy, and are expanding to other regions around Europe.
ISIDrone is capable to apply Unmanned Aerial Vehicle Systems or Remotely Piloted Aircraft Systems (i.e. drones) in different environments or industrial infrastructures synchronized with additional tools and systems to perform certain diagnostics.
In South Africa we are an independent Women owned business recognized by the Civil Aviation Authorities of SA to provide services using UAV systems especially in Critical or Industrial areas such as the Railways/Mine.We develop certain Railways diagnostics tool systems (also synchronized with our Drones), make available complex usable information to support planning, maintenance and operations of Railways, however this is among a few other services we offer using UAV’s.
HISTORICAL REVIEW OF DRONES
First Unmanned Aircraft Vehicles were relatedto military applications
UAV Balloons, with bombs(late 1800 in Europe as well as USA)
UAV aircraft, with cameras (WWII)
Large areas detected in short time at low cost. Logistical problems are identified before physical inspection with a significant costs reduction.
Maintenance Handworks Operation become easy to manage thanks to a specific software designed for ISIDRONE. In real time is also possible to create special libraries with any information detected during the inspections by UAV.
Data Capturing & Research
Capturing and transferring data in real time and within 5 mm of accuracy, making it possible to analyse the data collected to conducting inspection reports.
By using ISIDRONES engineering inspection become much more immediate, accurate, quickly analyzable and storable. Particular equipments and specific software allow the collection of videos, images and defect data more sufficient and on-time.
Increasing safety onsite, real time data, faster data delivery, more costs effectiveness reduction in concerned inspections and making sure that service is delivered all the time to help prepare operation schedules and making our client become more efficient on service delivery.
Making sure we have the right professional profile in order to efficiently render our services to our client, training is always important. Pilots always need to be trained in order to be certified to fly/drive the Drones and also the second key element for one to conduct inspection is the “Diagnostics” in general the specific area (eg Railways) or sector (Mining) where data needs to be collected or inspections needs to be conducted. Two key elements (Pilot & Diagnostics).
