Unmanned Aircraft offer a new, safe and cost effective way to view things.

Edge Consulting began specializing in commercial UAS/Drone Technology as a way to enhance its engineering services. It has grown into a full-service division offering flight services and consulting to our clients. UAS/Drone Technology allows Edge to safely and efficiently view, document, and measure areas or structures in ways that are not possible using traditional tools.

With FAA Part 107 Certified pilots (PIC’s) Edge deploys three flight crews throughout the Midwest utilizing commercial grade aircraft to collect HD images and data that we can process to create highly precise, georeferenced 2D maps and 3D models. We also utilize FLIR “Thermal” Imaging and Video for analysis for specialty inspections and to aid in Search and Rescue missions.
