Draganfly Innovations White Paper on UAS for Crime Scene and Accident Reconstruction Imaging.

Crime-Scene-and-Accident-Reconstruction-ImagingDraganfly Innovations is known for their quality aircraft systems but more and more it’s about the work being accomplished, the quality of the data being collected, and the value the aircraft bring to a company, an agency, or an individual.

In the attached white paper, the author provides an inside look at the work being accomplished with the aircraft used to inspect bridges, document serious auto accidents and using high powered 3D visualization tools, creating highly detailed 3D point cloud images that can be used to essentially freeze an accident or crime scene in time. These powerful tools provide the ability to view captured aerial data from any angle while at the same time, provide centimeter accuracy to measure and document the incident.

Combined with the efforts of key business partners, Draganfly Innovations is focused on solutions and delivering tangible results to their customers. Draganfly reinvented the helicopter back in 1999 and today they are transforming what we commonly refer to an sUAS helicopter system into a tool that can be used as an aerial 3D scanner.

Just take a few minutes to think about this concept … low altitude 3D scanning to centimeter accuracy. It’s brilliant.
