Confined Space Surveys – Specialist Drone Etc.

Underground & Tunnel Networks, Airports, Military etc.

Surveying infrastructure in confined areas is a very specialist discipline that Upshot is highly experienced in. We regularly survey difficult to access areas for say a busy London Underground station, major airports or undersea tunnels. We can provide comprehensive image, video footage and even potentially in real-time.

Our trained and certified UAV pilots will undergo an initial ground flight assessment, secure the required aviation permissions, and execute the flight in accordance with the CAA regulations ensuring that the job is undertaken in a safe and legal manner.
