Along with using standard high-resolution cameras, infrared thermography can be incorporated in drone inspection for sub-surface examinations. The drone can monitor the structural health of certain areas by detecting surfaces that are warmer than its surroundings. Defect areas tend to stop the flow of heat and will appear hotter.
Using drone inspection solutions provides the following benefits:
Inspection of areas difficult to reach
Preventative maintenance planning
Access to areas that pose health and safety risks to humans
Fast response times
Quick on-site deployment of inspection systems
