Drone Safety

Safety is an important aspect of all our operations and one that is taken very seriously by the DroneScope crew. Every operation is assessed and evaluated with great detail. If our crew do not feel that the operation is safe, we maintain the right to postpone the service until a later date or until the problem(s) are rectified.

FAILSAFE: Our UAS has built in failsafe procedures to ensure that the system is as safe as possible during operation. These procedures include a return home function which directs the UAS back to the takeoff location during signal interference and transmitter failure. The system will also land itself if the battery pack discharges to a certain value. The return home function can be activated at the crews command in case of emergency.

  • For every operation our crew will:

    • Provide detailed site survey’s.
    • Request airspace (if required).
    • Conduct risk assesments.
    • Check airspace & NOTAM.
    • Ensure relevant permissions have been obtained.
    • Monitor Weather forecast.
    • Provide pre flight checklists.
    • Only fly when satisfied that it is safe to do so.
    • Ensure all requirements have been achieved.

 

Client Requirements
