Aerial & Underwater Drone Inspection

Improve efficiency and decrease risks with our rapid, effective, precise, expert Drone Services.

Leverage our Aerial & Underwater Drone Expertise for your Project

ORTAM is a leading Canadian company providing drone services to clients in Quebec and Ontario.  We provide advanced aerial and underwater drone services to clients in virtually every industry. From construction and engineering to commercial real estate, to renewable energy, mining and oil and gas, to roads, infrastructure and utilities, and more. We are trained and certified by Transport Canada with significant experience piloting unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV).

Using one or more camera-equipped drones, we can perform fast, accurate, and extremely efficient inspections below and above ground, creating three-dimensional “geomaps” using topographic and orthomosaic imaging.

A safe & reliable solution for inspecting
hard-to-reach or hazardous areas

Drones are an excellent method to streamline processes, improve best practices, reduce expenses, and boost efficiency. Drone mapping technology can assist in keeping projects on budget and on schedule.

Reduce Risk & Liability

Drones remove the safety concerns, such as heights, inclines, and hard-to-access areas associated with having an on-site team completing inspections.

Reach Difficult Terrain

An aerial mapping drone can take off and fly anywhere. You are not restricted by inaccessible regions, dangerous slopes, or hard terrain. There is no need to close roadways or train tracks. Data can be collected during operation.

Save time & money

Capturing topographic data using a drone is up to 5x faster than traditional methods and requires fewer people in the field. Drone capabilities remove the inconvenience associated with having a live ground team inspect your site, reducing human error and cost. You generate your survey data faster and is more cost-effective.

Provide accurate, highly detailed data

A single drone flight generates thousands of measurements, which can be represented in several formats (orthomosaic, point cloud, DTM, DSM, contour lines, etc). Each pixel of the generated map or 3D model point comprises 3D geo-data.


Drone Inspections for every Industry 

Accurate inspections might be difficult to do and require expensive equipment such as cranes, helicopters, or specially designed sensors depending on your needs and the location of your industry.

Using drones, inspections may be carried out right away thanks to the drone’s quick response time; all that is needed is a secure landing area and a careful drone operator. Drones can operate with a variety of hardware including video, aerial photos, thermal imaging and underwater.
