Beyond the Line of Visual Sight Drone Trial

This contractor is the first in the UK to use drone flight to be controlled from beyond the line of visual sight (BLOVS) and is intended to pave the way for them to be stored on or flown to site to carry out visual inspections without operators needing to travel to site.

The drone pilot is located in a central control room fifty miles away from the development. Pilots working in a central control room without the need to physically see the drones drive down costs and allow long distance surveys.

During the flight, the drone captured video and imagery of structural details on the site.

The benefits of this technology is that it will enable faster, safer and more detailed surveys to be carried out on projects. It will also mean contractors can be more responsive – getting a drone up to inspect an issue at a moment’s notice, instead of taking days or weeks to arrange.
