Infra-red thermography
Thermography can be used to perform a wide range of specific tasks, including for example:
- Checking the thermal insulation of buildings
- Detecting damage (to power cables, solar energy systems, etc.)
- Searching for missing persons
- Detection of fires in their early stages / deployment during forest fires
- etc.

LIDAR stands for “Laser Imaging Detection and Ranging”, a system designed for the precise measurement of distances. One of its specialist uses is in 3-D object detection, usually on behalf of engineering firms and meteorologists. When it is combined with high-resolution cameras, the resulting three-dimensional renderings of terrain structures can be truly breathtaking.

Other deployment possibilities:
- Terrain models for land-use / urban planning purposes
- Land-surveying tasks of all kinds
- Monitoring / inspection of pipelines, motorways, railway tracks, etc.
- Analysis of floods, avalanches, forest fires, landslides, etc.
- Map-making and cartography, construction designs
- etc.
