Magnetometer Survey

ABOUT THE ENGAGEMENT

Droneflight were commissioned as part of a major critical national infrastructure programme to conduct a magnetometer survey of a very large area on a brownfield site.  There were 2 classes of survey conducted: one to assist in ground characterisation, one to assist in UXO identification.  Over 160 flights were executed to complete this engagement over approximately 50 Ha.

The brownfield area survey was conducted for ground characterisation purposes and was the largest part of the engagement.  Existing site infrastructure and vegetation were key challenges as the drone was flown at a very low level.

The UXO survey was conducted on an area of public beach that presented a number of challenges in terms of access and management of the public to ensure safe operations.
