What we can do for you
Equipped with high-resolution camera equipment, drones can acquire hundreds of images of airport assets from aprons, taxiways, runways, radar assemblies, to buildings and specialist equipment.
With paved surfaces subject to significant levels of distress from aircraft operations and changing environmental conditions, close range imaging can provide a detailed picture of asset status, conditions and progress.
Early detection can mitigate against expensive repairs or replacement while the use of drone operated services means minimum interruption to normal airport operations.
Mutispectral imagery using the latest in camera and software technology can detect issues with grass such as pest (leatherjacket) infestation, low levels of nutrients, weed growth, all of which can affect compliance with CAA CAP 772.
Our BASIS airfield qualified agronomist can then suggest the most cost effective way forward to ensure a fast effective route to optimum grass quality and reduced bird strike risk.
With more than 18 years delivering bird, grass and asset management services at airports across the UK, NWBC’s teams have extensive operational knowledge and expertise in this sector.
