Lean on our team of experts to deliver a full, end-to-end aerial marine ecology survey workflow. Expertly planned and precisely executed to help accelerate your project.
Our expert team take into consideration a number of key parameters, including proximity to Special Protected Areas (SPAs) or Special Areas of Conservation (SACs), bathymetry and benthic habitat. This strategic design maximises the accuracy of the survey data and ensures adequate precision for detecting changes post-construction.
High-quality data acquisition using our own specialist aircraft. Featuring state-of-the-art, high-resolution aerial cameras that allow us to fly above the recognised disturbance threshold, ensuring a low-noise and faster data acquisition process. All overseen by our expert aerial team, ensuring quality control throughout.
Images are captured using a gyroscopically stabilised mount to minimise motion blur, supported by a high-precision GNSS-INS, allowing for highly accurate georeferencing. Powering precise estimations of bird or mammal body length and allowing for pinpoint location measurements to within 10cm.
Our bespoke AI system is purpose-built for use in offshore digital aerial marine ecology surveys and tailored to locate the species likely to be observed in the local environment. We combine this AI system with our experienced image analysts and thorough quality control processes to deliver highly accurate classification.
Trained and highly qualified ecologists identify biotic signals within our imagery to species-level. Key attribute information, such as bird body size, are gathered to inform further analyses such as collision risk modelling.
Across the survey period, we develop a detailed understanding of species distribution, densities and behaviour. With extensive expertise in both design- and model-based analytical techniques, our experts have developed robust and externally audited workflows that help to guide and inform decision making.
We summarise all data, insights and findings into comprehensive, detailed reports that fully inform and guide all projects.
