UAV Field Day – come and visit UPG!

The Surveying and Spatial Sciences Institute's (SSSI) UAV Field Day

Interested to know more about how an Unmanned Aerial System (UAS) can help you to grow your business? Or are you just a bit of a tech geek who loves everything UAV? If you answered yes to either of those, you’ll want to head along to the SSSI UAV Field day in Melbourne next Tuesday!

UPG will be there, along with other UAV vendors, to talk to you about our Trimble and Sensefly systems. First and foremost we’re interested in the work that you do and whether or not a UAS could help you to do this more effectively and cost efficiently. On the day, we’ll be demonstrating how UAVs operate, the data they collect and produce and how the software works. We’d also love to talk to you about the ongoing UAV support, service and training that we can offer. This will mean you’ll really get the most out of your system.

We love talking to our customers about how they’re using our solutions, and recently we caught up with Patrick Weeden from Scout Aerial to have a chat about how his company uses their UAVs day-to-day.

Here’s what Patrick had to say:

“Scout Aerial is in the business of using aerial imagery for both media and surveying. We have a substantial fleet of UAVs, but for aerial surveying we use the SenseFly eBee supplied by UPG. We service multiple industries to provide 3D mapping, precision topographical and agricultural surveys, stockpile and volume calculations, digital elevation models and much more.

“I’ve found the eBee to be fantastic in terms of value for money, performance and ease of deployment. The software is user friendly, straight forward and allows us to plan missions very effectively and efficiently. The eBee is an ideal option for operations that require quick deployment and very accurate results.

“Traditionally, aerial imagery requires a helicopter or plane flyover at a price beyond most budgets. Our UAV services come at a fraction of the cost, which means that it is not only viable for large corporations, but smaller businesses can reap the benefits too.

“We continue to get enquiries from new and existing customers to do quicker and larger jobs so we’re planning to increase our UAV fleet. We’ll be looking to UPG for all our additional UAV requirements including additional eBees and the new Trimble UX5. UPG has been an absolute delight to deal with and their after-sales support is second to none.

“We’re also looking forward to putting our new team members through UPG’s recently announced flight school. I’ve been running my own in-house flight school for some time but this will make the process much quicker and easier. We’re really looking forward to putting our new pilots through this course and working closely with UPG in the future.”
