Unmanned Aerial Vehicles

Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) are used to gather data previously compiled by boots-on-the-ground scientists, inspectors, technicians and other professionals.  They also gather visual and scientific data previously unavailable without use of satellites or manned aircraft, making new information available on even small projects to help you make informed decisions faster.  

Pinnacle Engineering, Inc., staffs 8 FAA- Part 107 Certified Pilots across four Midwest offices, with flying experience in emergency response, inspections and monitoring, as well as surveying.  We understand that time is critical on projects and we offer a one-day turnaround time for 2D basemaps, aerial photos, 3D models, plant health indicator models, and videos.  Expedited turnaround times are also available for terrain models and other deliverables requiring processing.

By utilizing Pinnacle’s UAV services, you take your project to new heights.
