UAV Insight specialise in operating drones in a Marine environment. With immediate access to a variety of vessels and MCA qualified staff we are able to operate in areas which are only accessible by boat. This means we can offer a variety of services such as coastal erosion surveying / monitoring, offshore structure inspection and vessel promotional videos for sales and hire purposes.
Marine Film and Photography Services
UAV Insight are experienced in aerial filming of vessels for promotional purposes. Working with the client, either from a land base or a support vessel, UAV Insight is able to capture action shots which would have previously required the hire of a helicopter at a much greater expense. Please see some footage below of various clips taken from completed Marine promotional projects for various clients.
To operate a drone commercially one of the CAA guidelines is that the Pilot must alway maintain visual contact with the UAV and not rely on flying it via the use of it's onboard camera. This is not necessarily possible when filming certain coastal situations without the putting the UAV / Drone operators at risk. By having access to a variety of vessels and qualified skippers UAV Insight are able to operate the drone from a boat and maintain line of sight whilst carrying out the survey / Inspection work.
