Aerial Infrared (AIR) and Daylight HD video

Infrared and visible spectrum video from a fixed-wing aircraft for natural resource data collection and search & rescue/ surveillance missions . Our system includes integrated GIS mapping software and industry leading optical zoom. Our data is typically collected at a safe 1 mile stand-off distance.



We have multiple military-grade, infrared and visible spectrum imaging systems we call "IRIS"

IRIS is mounted to a fixed-wing aircraft platform and includes:

  • High-definition (HD) visible spectrum and an advanced, cryogenically-cooled infrared imaging sensor.

  • On-board augmented reality, integrated GIS mapping computer system.

  • Powerful electro-optical zoom.

  • 4-axis gimbal with IMU image stabilizer.

  • Laser illuminator and target detection.

  • Live-stream video capabilities.

Over the last 10 years, we've conducted AIR surveys for private, federal, state, and local government agencies across the United States and Canada. We've surveyed a variety of wildlife species, including sage grouse, Columbia sharp-tailed grouse, pheasant, elk, mule deer, coyote, bighorn sheep, moose, grizzly bear, salmon, feral pigs, pronghorn antelope, wolves, mountain lions, pelicans, cormorants, and wild horses. 

Our team has developed specific surveying protocols through investigation and analysis focused on managing the variables that influence detectability and data quality. Our protocols are subject and terrain-specific.
