Wondering about the terminology of drone services? It can seem complex, but it boils down to a few key terms. Use this handy guide to figure it all out.
Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV)
The most general term for all drones, including remote-controlled drones and those operated by onboard computer. These days, it’s used less often in favor of “drone” or application-specific terms.
A quadcopter drone is an unmanned helicopter with four rotors. To optimize balance, they are set at equal distances from one another. Quadcopters are distinctive from the more common drones that resemble a small airplane. Each type of drone excels in different situations.
Any drone with the proper equipment can be used for aerial photography. An aerial photography kit usually includes a high-resolution camera and software platform capable of capturing, retaining, and processing the images – in many cases, delivering them instantly to the client.
Drone Mapping Services
Drone mapping services are performed by capturing high-resolution 2D or 3D images of a current or proposed worksite. Aerial mapping can provide complete 3D details accurate to less than an inch. Full 3D reality mapping data is compatible with CAD and GIS applications.
A visual, chronological view of a project site clients access using the 2D and 3D mapping data provided by drones. This allows them to monitor progress and find opportunities for more efficient planning and operations.
A drone pilot or drone operator is an expert who has developed advanced skills in maneuvering drones and using their capabilities under tough, real-world conditions. At Eye-bot Aerial Solutions, all of our drone pilots have years of experience.
A drone engineer is someone with a background in mechanical sciences, aerospace, or allied fields who knows how to build and optimize drones. Our in-house team allows us to customize aerial hardware for each project at no additional cost to the client.
At Eye-bot Aerial Solutions, our staff combines drone expertise with a passion for finding the best ways to meet our clients’ needs using today’s technology. To find out more, just contact us today.
Drone inspection services are making life easier in the telecommunications industry.
From the field technician to the executive board, everyone benefits from the high-quality data you can capture using aerial photogrammetry. Enterprises using an industrial drone service can lower their maintenance costs, accelerate their big projects, and react to changes fast.
6 Ways Drone Inspection Services are Changing Telecom
1) Simpler Downtime Response
There may be thousands of miles of transmission lines in your network, but you can accurately pinpoint problems with drone inspection services. That helps you meet tough service level commitments.
2) Faster Equipment Maintenance
Regular monitoring with an industrial drone service can alert you to the first signs that capital equipment needs servicing. This lets you deploy teams proactively and strive for higher uptime.
3) Easier Site Inspections
Site inspections are key to regulatory compliance and worksite safety. Aerial photogrammetry can reach places your team can’t, letting you simplify and streamline inspection processes.
4) Safer Disaster Response
Under dangerous conditions, drones really shine. By identifying active hazards, they can protect life and property within hours after a disaster, all while helping you get critical systems back online.
5) Accurate Insurance Processing
When damage is unavoidable, quick insurance processing makes things right. Aerial photogrammetry can document problems and send high-res photos right to your office.
6) Quicker Project Planning
Today’s telecom never stands still. Aerial photogrammetry is your eye in the sky – in expert hands, it provides complete 3D reality mapping so new project planning is a snap.
Drone inspection services are making it easier than ever to get world-class performance out of regional and nationwide telecom networks. With data touching on every aspect of your operations, it’s simple to synthesize strategies that optimize and expand your assets.
At Eye-bot Aerial Solutions, we’re excited to be a part of the telecom industry transformation in the Drone Age. Our UAV pilots and engineers deliver the full power of drone technology to your doorstep – professional service with no overhead or hassle.

Data is the driving force behind more and more of today’s economy – and the importance of that data goes well beyond the office or the boardroom.
Large-scale infrastructure, industrial, and telecom assets achieve efficiency when sound data is collected and used. However, enterprises must find unique new approaches to collect accurate, complete data under challenging conditions out there in the real world.
Historically, the answer has been found in the expertise of the field technician.
Today, many enterprises oversee assets spread over thousands of miles. New methods need to extend the capabilities and coverage area of technician teams while reducing safety risks and controlling costs. The answer to these competing needs is the modern UAV aerial survey.
A UAV Aerial Survey Can Triple Your Team’s Speed and Efficiency
UAV aerial survey services let you square the circle, balancing the need for ever-greater coverage with the desire to maintain an agile, highly-trained team. Aerial photogrammetry can accelerate all your data gathering efforts even under tough conditions.
Drone-based aerial photogrammetry projects let the team at Eye-bot Aerial Solutions deliver a large volume of accurate, high-res 2D images straight to your desk. It all happens in a fraction of the time a manual data-gathering operation would take.
The advantages are unparalleled:
Plus, your UAV aerial survey can help the team at Eye-bot compose a complete 3D reality model of your site. Not only can you benefit from accelerated data gathering, but also see that data in a processed form that engineers and other experts can work with immediately.
It’s the best solution for planning, maintaining, and developing your assets.

In the wake of Hurricanes Harvey and Irma, millions of people need help.
As linemen, rescue workers, and insurance agents move into the disaster area, safety is the top priority. Restoring shattered communities and providing people with the help they need means understanding the damage and the active hazards that are still out there.
At Eye-bot Aerial Solutions, we believe that we have a role to play alongside the brave men and women who are going to extraordinary lengths to help others put their lives back together.
Drones have been involved in disaster response and rescue efforts for years – but there has never been anything like the massive deployment that is now underway.
At this tough time when everyone is working together, our team wants municipalities, insurance agencies, telecoms, and others in the relief effort to understand how we can help.
Our teams can perform disaster recovery services:
Utility and Telecom Asset Inspection
Many thousands of linemen from throughout the country are hard at work in Florida. Because of our ability to deliver high-res aerial photography and precise 3D reality mapping, we can help them assess equipment anywhere in the crisis zone. That includes complete, accurate intelligence on transmission lines and utility poles before any climbing is attempted.
Residential Damage Assessment
To accelerate claims processing, insurance adjusters need detailed information on damages. Eye-bot Aerial Solutions can perform fly-over operations to assess structural damage, including roof damage, in areas that are currently unreachable on foot. Precision imagery can be delivered to your office at the touch of a button, so claims never need to be delayed.
