Helicopters Provide Accurately Defined Situational Data, Used Across Industries in Delaware
In Delaware, surveying and mapping are methods used to gather situational or location specific information. Through a variety of applications, data sets are formed that may be used for construction and development planning, to define boundaries and to map the locations and spatial relationships between structures and landforms in specific regions. Data sets are compiled by taking aerial photographs, implementing lasered and/or Geo-thermal technologies and integrating real time GPS, ultimately forming layers upon layers of information about specific objects or areas. The data is then assembled into systems called Geographic Information Systems (GIS). These systems are updated routinely to keep information accurate and may be used in research and development for companies, civic or government agencies, and scientific innovations.
The most effective way to implement technologies and to efficiently gather spatial information is through airborne technologies. Helicopters, as a platform, deliver a more expansive viewpoint over ground based methods allowing for more area to be covered in a fraction of the time.
Aerial Inspections Offer Efficiency to Delaware’s Utility Companies
Aerial inspections or surveys conducted from helicopters are ideal in inspection of various installations, existing infrastructures and of potential construction sites in the pursuit of growth and development in states all across the US. Recently, in Delaware, Delmarva Power utilized aerial support to conduct inspections of close to 2,000 miles of transmission lines across their service area. The company said they initiated the inspections to conduct preventative maintenance and review systems to address any potential issues or problems.
These type of aerial inspections and surveys are becoming more commonplace across a range of industries because when conducted aerially a wider field of vision can be explored and helicopters can swiftly cover more ground effectively. This translates to technicians and teams being dispatched more rapidly to address issues before they become more widespread.
Aerial Surveying Technology Types
Via the integration of airborne technologies and complex data systems with helicopter support, aerial surveying is easily and effectively made possible. Although each operator’s technologies may vary to a degree, they will typically utilize some form of one or more of the following.
LiDar (Light Detection And Ranging) is a type of data acquisition technology used commonly as an aerial mapping application. Airborne LiDar technology uses a scanning laser to measure the distance between objects. Typically the spatial relationship is between the airborne scanning device and objects on the ground. The laser effectively paints or covers the surface of the object(s) with a scattering of light points and measures the time it takes for each point of light to bounce back to the scanning device.
GIS is a digital framework wherein geographic data is compiled. GIS gathers and analyzes spatial locations and geographic patterns to organize layers of information and mapping data into three dimensional visualizations. These visualizations provide deeper insights for business leaders, private contractors, utility companies and resource providers to better serve their industry-specific endeavors by raising their situational awareness of patterns, relationships, and potential trouble spots.
Photogrammetry obtains 3D data from images by taking overlying images and transforming them into 2D or 3D models. For mapping, elements are fused to provide film and digital aerial photography, digital terrain modeling, digital elevation model (DEM) development, ground control surveys, image scanning, digital aerial triangulation, and airborne GPS, producing crucial data for developers, planners, business owners, etc.
Limitless Aerial Services
Superior aircraft equipped with HD camera, data and image collection technology as well as trained pilots and technicians, deliver precise information to execute vital projects to planners, developers, and agencies. The following industries and services rely upon helicopter support for effective operations
Transmission Line and Utility Corridors
To satisfy the increase in demand for energy resources in various communities throughout Delaware as well as for global markets,, it’s imperative that resources are able to be transmitted without difficulty or delay. Delaware's utility companies and contractors in need access to reliable resources to maintain the integrity of their existing infrastructure while simultaneously gathering and effectively translating nuances in data to plan for the future development of new power line corridors.
High-Definition Urban Mapping
Local governments in Delaware and engineers and community developers use aerial data acquisition to map cities in efforts to improve town planning. Helicopter support makes it possible for HD aerial cameras to be used in conjunction with airborne LiDar and photogrammetry technologies to simultaneously produce various types of imagery which minimizes costs and mitigates the need for road closures and is used in effectively planning for new growth and development opportunities.
Highway Design and Ideal Route Studies
In Delaware, helicopter support is used widely to complete accurate preliminary road and route studies, as-built surveys, GPS surveys for project development and construction, hydrographic surveys, design engineering surveys, ROW mapping, and more to improve upon, circumvent issues with and orchestrate the development of new transportation infrastructure in strong>Delaware.
Emergency Response and Damage Assessment
Civil, federal and relief agencies in Delaware tasked with dispatching emergency response utilize aerial surveys and mapping to help emergency managers to develop recovery strategies, to compile damage assessments, to plan and orchestrate rehabilitation efforts of impacted areas, and in allowing for displaced inhabitants to view images of their properties.
Mining and Exploration Services
Delaware's mining sector is a key contributor to the state's growing economy. Helicopter support used alongside airborne LiDar and hyperspectral technologies for mining pursuits yields accurate data sets from mineral exploration, helps to record stockpile & pit volumes, monitors acid mine drainage, and is utilized to perform audit and as-built surveys, as well as serves as a leak detection application.
