Environmental Monitoring

With purpose-built scientific platforms consisting of an airframe, avionics, and module-based sensors, BST’s small Unmanned Aerial Systems (sUAS) are engineered to meet the demands of high altitude flights through strong winds and damaging airborne particulates typical of nomadic scientific field campaigns in harsh environments.

Surveying & Mapping

With the advent of Part 107 allowing pilots to fly drones commercially, Surveyors and Engineers have been discovering the value small Unmanned Aerial Systems (sUAS) can bring to their businesses and their clients. Corridor mapping, orthomosaic mapping, topographic mapping, and volumetrics, are all deliverables that can be done more efficiently using a sUAS and its precision aerial mapping capabilities.

Construction & Mining

Aerial precision mapping lets you generate 3D volume calculations and stockpile reports with centimeter-grade accuracy in a fraction of the time traditional methods take. Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS) give you the ability to visually monitor your sites and quickly analyze your progress, in real time, leveraging aerial imagery and precise orthophotos.

Modular by Design

Payload and sensors can easily be switched out or combined leveraging BST's unique Modular by Design architecture for effortless system customization and functinality.

Accurate by Nature

BST's SwiftCore Flight Management System (FMS) provides industry-leading sensor-based control of the sUAS minimizing operator workload while improving the quality of the observed data by autonomously modifying the flight path based on sensor inputs. The result is precision that other vendors cannot match.
