US Executive ® drones are equipped with obstacle avoidance capabilities and can navigate remarkably close to structures, allowing them to capture maintenance issues. They take high-resolution images or video that clearly show cracks, damage, misplaced wires and other defects at elevations and angles that humans cannot access or maneuver. This allows for collection of more comprehensive data without exposing the inspection team to risks.

2D/3D Modeling

2D and 3D aerial maps, orthophotomosaic and topographic surveys. Drones capture detailed photos of a large area, allowing you to identify obstacles and take advantage of geo-spatial data. Using high definition cameras and FLIR thermal imaging technologies and Lidar systems, our network of certified API inspectors and trained UAV pilots provides expertise and personalized support to energy industry companies looking for drone solutions.

Following each Drone Inspection, US Executive’s™ Clientele receive a detailed UAV Report include:

  • Inspection Reports
  • Infrared & Thermal Images
  • High Definition (HD) Videos
  • High Resolution Photographs
  • Point Cloud Data
  • DSM, DTM or DEM Files

Our Pilots maintain multiple Degrees & Certifications

  • American Petroleum Institute (API)
  • American Society of Non-Destructive Testing (ASNT)
  • American Welding Society (AWS)
  • Federal Aviation Administration (FAA)
  • Personnel Certification in Non-Destructive Testing (PCN)

Thermal Imaging

US Executive ® Drone Pilots, Inspectors and their other SMEs check thermal imaging to detect leaks, faulty structures and energy loss in the fraction of the time it would take to manually inspect a property & facility. Using drone thermal imaging can detect an area that may be prone to malfunction in the future.

Confined Space Tank Inspections

Although accessing and inspecting confined spaces in the Oil & Gas industry, Power Plant, Alternative Energy, Construction Sites and other facilities can be challenging, US Executive ® makes it possible to no longer put your Team at Risk. You no longer need to send personnel into unsafe areas or dangerous confined spaces. US Executive ® Drones are Custom-made and designed to easily navigate & operate safely in a wide range of confined spaces while performing the inspection at a fraction of the time and cost of traditional methods.

Security-Cleared Manpower Provider

US Executive ® maintains Licensed & Insured Drone Pilots in 130+ Countries providing the Inspections, Photography & Mapping when it is needed most.

In addition, US Executive ® is now providing Drone Pilot Training, Certification & the Custom Equipment (with Maintenance Plans) to Special Forces & Security Companies around the World (Air, Sea & Land).

Global Library

US Executive ® maintains one of the World’s Largest Databases of Aerial Mapping Gear, Maps, Software, Aerial & Satellite Photography and just about anything its Clients require to build or maintain their Mapping Systems.

Drone Inspection Benefits

How do most people use their drones? In the United States, the organization that controls all air traffic (private and commercial) is the FAA, which stands for the Federal Aviation Administration. In 2012, the U.S. Congress passed a law requiring the FAA to issue rules for legalizing the commercial usage of drones in the United States by September of 2015.

Currently, drone usage is protected under the FAA’s regulations pertaining to recreational and hobby uses as long as the drone is under 55 lbs. With no good way of monitoring or policing drone usage, however, there have been many private individuals, companies, farmers, small businesses, and so on that have begun using drones to help them get work done faster, smarter, and at lower risk and liabilities.
