iRed launches new drone aerial inspection system


Thermographic imaging specialist iRed has launched new aerial inspection services.

The company says it has been testing and developing the system for years and it’s capable of providing entirely new points of view.

“Since early 2012, we’ve been testing and developing aerial technologies in order to produce a comprehensive and efficient inspection solution that not only complements our existing remote sensing capabilities but would also allow us to perform surveys from new perspectives,” says the company in a statement. 


iRed says it uses a mix of still, multispectral and thermal imaging. This combination enables it to provide in-depth data for a wide range of applications such as maintenance, inspection or mapping.

iRed says this data can then be used for:

  • Accurately locating faulty cells in PV panels
  • Detecting and visualizing moisture density, nitrogen, chlorophyll and NDVI in agricultural areas
  • Producing fully scale-able, georeferenced 3D models
  • Inspecting otherwise inaccessible areas
