Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS)

DragonflyAI is a division of HRL that offers industry leading, high quality remote sensing services for customers from diversified industries such as energy, recreation, construction, agricultural, mining, environmental, and government agencies. The use of Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS) provides immediate results in the form of high-resolution imagery. Our team of photogrammetrists have professional experience in UAS Data Acquisition, Geospatial Processing, and Advanced Imagery Analysis, and quantitative assessment with 3D modeling.

With cutting edge imagery processing capabilities we are providing value to our clients day-in and day-out that our competitors cannot match. Our fleet of certified industrial grade quadcopters and fixed-wing UAV platforms are missioned by our licensed and experienced pilots.

The vast benefits of utilizing our large scale georeferenced images include significant savings in operation costs, greatly decreased timelines, and higher quality data for making key decisions. Aerial images acquired at up to 24 megapixels give our clients the ability to progressively track progress or spot the smallest details of a work site throughout the various phases of a project. The orthomosaic photos can be used in a wide array of applications from planning and permitting, regulatory compliance, liability reduction, legal, boundary dispute, progress tracking, and much more.


Our advanced data processing center allows for fast turnaround times for our clients. We are capable of processing large scale projects and delivering cloud based digital products online. This allows for global cooperation between independent drone companies and HRL as well as quick delivery times for projects spanning large areas.


Our thermal sensors are able to detect surface temperatures from -40°F up to 320°F within a 0.2°F margin of error. With this level of precision, we are able to detect leaks, heat loss, surface ventilation and a host of other possibilities. Our coverage area for these projects can range anywhere from a few feet to several miles to fit the scope of your project.


Utilizing several flights at different phases of the project, we are able to calculate how much soil or hazardous material has been leveled, removed, or replaced to provide near exact volume data.
