No longer just a hi-tech toy, drones are becoming an indispensable tool in helping understand the lay of the land.
Surveyors said that unmanned aerial vehicles have become a common piece of equipment within their industry – the devices not only save time, but potentially the skin of staff.
Kris Gough, senior surveyor at Lower Hutt and Kapiti based surveying, engineering and resource planning business Cuttriss, said about 20 per cent of the company’s surveying work had involved the use of drones since they began using them in August last year.
Strat Aero plc (LON:AERO), is focused on the continued development of the Company’s ‘Survey & Inspection’ business, in addition to implementing an enhanced growth strategy via the appraisal of complementary acquisition or investment opportunities. This is in line with the Company’s stated objective to achieve improved financial performance in the near term.
