UAS & USV
Providing state-of-the-art digital 3D models and aerial imagery for a diverse range of applications.
NewFields is a leader in the application of emerging technologies to improve data quality, efficiency, and rapid dissemination of critical information to decision makers through the use of small unmanned aircraft systems (sUAS) and remotely-piloted boats known as unmanned surface vehicles (USV).
We own and operate a fleet of high-quality tools to offer multiple cost-effective imaging and terrain-modeling solutions. From small fixed-wing and multirotor UAS to a specialized camera pod that easily and temporarily mounts to light aircraft, still images are captured and processed into high-quality terrain models and georeferenced image mosaics. A USV is used to complete the picture below the waterline utilizing the latest in portable, survey-grade sonar systems. Data products are rapidly incorporated into GIS to be used in a wide range of applications from managing mining operations, modeling contaminant transport, or monitoring natural resource recovery. Services include:
- Tailings Storage Facility Management
- Coastal Change Monitoring
- Earthworks/Civil Construction Projects
- Natural Resources: Management, Conservation, and Restoration
- Habitat Mapping
