Unmanned aerial vehicles

Unmanned aerial vehicles

James Fisher Nuclear has the capability to provide aerial inspection and surveying for the nuclear industry and beyond, using highly flexible and versatile Unmanned Aerial Vehicles. 

Unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) from James Fisher Nuclear (JFN) can deliver a comprehensive range of sensors and tools including high resolution digital cameras, thermal cameras, radiation probes, LASER scanners and air samplers. This enables access to vital data to give you the complete picture from every vantage point.

As with our other ROVs, by adapting and deploying Commercially-Off-The Shelf (COTS) UAV equipment and sensors we can collect critical data from high hazard, or difficult to reach, areas quickly, more cost effectively and with much greater safety than with conventional means. To give additional peace of mind we provide the full lifecycle of services including safety cases, trials, testing, demos and training.

As you would expect we will also ensure complete compliance with the UK's current regulatory frameworks relating to unmanned aerial vehicles and data transmission to ensure all work is carried out in a safe and professional manner.

UAVs give you significant time and cost savings over traditional inspection methods, offering close up visual inspection with no need for scaffolding or MEWP (Mobile Elevated Work Platform) access. There is no requirement for personnel to work at height or in harm’s way, reducing your personal risk liability. 

We have comprehensively trained fully CAA regulated and competent pilots, working over complex terrain in demanding situations including the constraints required for flights on Nuclear Licensed Sites. 

You can expect an accurate and detailed inspection, to give substantiation of structure information and areas of risk can be quickly identified for fast on site decisions and all data has high level encryption for complete security in any eventuality.

UAVs are a cost effective way to deliver safe, accurate and actionable information for your business.
