Detection and Safety
Aerial photographs with drones can provide helpful support during fire brigade operations, rescues and in the area of civil emergencies (disaster control service). Our pilots assist with timely operations in the event of fires, accidents and natural disasters. In addition to providing assistance to rescue operations, photographs were taken to document the damage also assist insurance companies in assessing the damage accurately.
Our team provides rapid support to assess the situation with the help of aerial photographs during disasters such as earthquakes, landslides, explosions, etc. The experienced pilots and camera operators at L.A WWIC.Ltd effectively supervises the rescue work with extensive technical equipment. Cameras affixed to drones can quickly provide the fire brigade and officer-in-charge with an overview of the situation at the location of the fire. As a result, rescue operations can be implemented purposefully and with the greatest possible safety for the involved relief units.
Drones can help to identify hidden fire nests and locate missing persons. Special sensors provide readings via temperature, smoke emission and the gas concentration in the air. An evaluation of these data together with the current weather information enables the identification of risks to the population in due time and the initiation of the necessary measures.
We provide support to the fire brigade and rescue workers during mission planning to and insurances during damage assessment. With drones, the pilots and camera operators at L.A WWIC.Ltd can create professional damage documentation.
Damage documentation with drones after natural disasters and fires
After natural disasters, insurance companies receive a variety of damage reports, which make it difficult to maintain an overview. In such situations, an estimate of the actual extent of the damage by inspecting the extent of this damage is helpful to distinguish between correct details and insurance fraud. According to investigations carried out by the Insurance Association, a loss of about four billion euros per year alone is incurred by the insurance companies from indemnity and accident insurance due to insurance fraud. Valuable information for the initial documentation and for the assessment of damages can be collected by using drones to provide assistance. Damage documentation can be created in a timely manner from aerial photographs for evacuated or remote regions which are difficult to reach. Places such as roofs, towers or bridges can be investigated in detail with aerial photographs. Orthophotos can also be used to reproduce the damage that has occurred in the course of events.
Flood control and inspection of dyke systems with drones
Damaged areas on dyke constructions are not easy to detect from the ground. The ascent into dykes to investigate the damage is time-consuming. Although the damage cannot be seen with the naked eye, it may result in a breach of the dyke in the event of flooding. The risks associated with dyke damage for the population, agriculture and building development during a flood should not be underestimated.
Drones provide a cost-effective and efficient alternative for monitoring the dyke systems. Dykes can be patrolled from the air with drones and examined with thermal imaging cameras affixed for this purpose. Damaged spots in the dyke bodies can be identified on the created thermal images. Such damage can arise due to, for example, an excessive load as a result of flooding or heavy rainfall. It is possible to create a location image and identify damaged spots by patrolling with high-resolution thermal imaging cameras. Dyke inspectors, who inspect the dykes in these flood protection facilities, can use the flying robot technology for their work in an optimal way.
