Control Point Associates, Inc. provides the highest quality Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) imagery for a wide range of applications. Our certified pilots and staff provide solutions using the latest unmanned aerial technologies. UAVs offer cost-effectiveness and convenience to show clients an aerial view of projects, monitoring job sites to better ensure safe practices, inspections of difficult structures such as bridges, utility towers, buildings and roofs, and/or supply accurate two-dimensional (2D) or three-dimensional (3D) deliverables.
Through the collection of survey grade data, Control Point can produce topographic maps and orthophotographs detailing current conditions of a given area for the preliminary design of roadways, site development, facilities management, utility or bridge engineering, and to aid or enhance GIS databases.
Control Point Associates, Inc. has the extensive experience, technological support and trained staff to provide greater efficiency, quality and success to your project goals regionally and nationally. Scroll down to view some of the solutions we provide.
UAV based aerial mapping is an efficient and affordable way to get visualization and measurements of your property. Using our fleet of UAVs, we can capture and process imagery into high-resolution orthophotos, with a level of detail many times that of commercially available satellite imagery. From vacant land and new developments, to construction sites and aggregate stockpiles, our UAVs can survey sites up to 100 acres in hours.
Aerial Mapping Services:
- Topographic Surveys
- Orthomosaic Imagery
- Asset Management
- Geo-referenced 3D Point Clouds
- Contour Mapping
Control Point Associates, Inc. captures high definition photos and videos that offer incredible detail, resulting in the highest quality inspection. Operated remotely, our UAVs allow us to perform most inspections while assets are in operation, negating any downtime. Utilizing these technologies keeps employees and contractors safe, eliminating the need to climb heights or set up scaffolding and suspension equipment.
Inspection Services Include:
- Utility Inspections
- Cell Tower Inspections
- Renewable Energy Inspections
- Bridge, Railway, and Roadway Inspections
- Traffic Monitoring
- Building/Structural Inspections
- Insurance Claims/Damage Assessments
Control Point Associates, Inc. continues to innovate and expand our UAV services by offering high-quality infrared inspections to our clients. Equipped with a high-resolution FLIR radiometric thermal sensor and 4K video camera, our UAV fleet can quickly and efficiently capture actionable data in a single flight. The advanced cameras record data at the pixel level delivering accurate, real-time insights.
Infrared Roof Surveys
While your roof might look to be in great condition to the naked eye, there may be minor leaks that could lead to mold or structural damage. Our non-invasive infrared roof surveys detect otherwise unobservable areas of water penetration. By finding the trapped moisture in your roof membrane, and the insulation underneath, problem areas can be corrected without the expense of replacing the entire roof. Our UAVs allow us to view the results of the inspection from the ground, without having to step foot on your roof.
Solar Panel Inspections
All solar panels require periodic inspections. With our infrared camera, we can detect connection issues, overheating cells, and physical damage. Overheating solar cells reduce the power output of a panel, and can even crack the glass cover, allowing in moisture and resulting in panel failure. Infrared inspection finds defective cells and electrical components so they can be replaced, maximizing your array output and efficiency.
Infrared Building Envelope Inspections
Air infiltration and missing insulation contribute to increased energy usage and higher utility bills in commercial buildings. Infrared building envelope inspections are the fastest way to find leaks around window frames, molding, and sashes. Our UAVs can collect data from areas that are otherwise inaccessible.
Our UAV services can save you time and money during your construction projects. Offsite managers, investors and engineers can be updated with accurate images and video on a daily or weekly basis. Our detailed imagery produces multiple layers of useful data. Control Point Associates, Inc. can help improve your jobsite efficiency, safety, and maintain project schedules and budgets.
