ASI Coverage

Aerial Services has flexibility to acquire data within tight timeframes, beyond that of other methods (like satellite). While there are limits on any technique, how quickly imagery can be acquired by aircraft is typically only a function of how fast the aircraft can get there and the atmospheric conditions upon arrival. Aerial Services’ is centrally located in North America which enables our crews to deploy aircraft for acquisition to two-thirds of the United States within three hours of takeoff.

A natural disaster hits, your client wants their project complete next week, the imagery funding only becomes available a week before you want to fly, or you want to review imagery right after acquisition. Can you get your aerial imagery acquired or viewed quickly?
