Stantec announces the expansion of its Unmanned Aerial System (UAS) professional services with the recent addition of multiple systems. These new survey grade multi-rotor systems will be located in Santa Barbara, Tucson, Reno, Salt Lake City, Edmonton, Calgary, Regina and Ottawa.

Designed by Skycatch, the UAS fleet will support the firm’s environmental services, geomatics, community development, mining, architecture and transportation clients, providing commercial surveying and mapping services.

“It’s an exciting time at Stantec as we expand our UAS fleet across Canada and now offer services in the United States for the first time, leading the industry with our Geomatics capabilities,” says UAS Operations Manager, Kevin Grover. “The Skycatch system provides everything we need in one package that is easy to use. This will allow us to provide clients with detailed 3D terrain and high resolution imagery much faster than before.”

With the unmanned devices, Stantec can process, view and share 3D information to staff and clients in a web browser while using a secure cloud-based data solution.
