Make a digital twin of an asset, so everyone at the office can access it.Let's talk
A 3D model of your asset allows your whole team to study, whenever and wherever they choose. No more transportation of people to and from the site, saving you both time and money.
Using cutting-edge drone photogrammetry and 3D modelling technology, we'll provide you with a high-resolution and photorealistic replica of your asset. Following your specifications, Engineers With Drones will create a digital version of your infrastructure, site, object or landscape that's tailor-made for you.
Find delamination in concrete structures with little to no downtime. Quick, reliable and cost-effective.
Discover potential and current defects on haul roads and access routes caused by vehicle and machinery traffic.
Monitor earthwork changes over time for a fast and cost-effective way to avoid any discrepancies.
Combined with thermal imaging, easily pinpoint any areas of water drainage and damage.
Easily locate and isolate any areas of your asset that have been affected by erosion or corrosion.
Combined with thermal imaging, easily locate cold spots or poor insulation coverage.
Drones aren't just for flying up in the sky. Our specialist drones can fly into confined spaces like chimneys and boilers to look for issues that would otherwise be inaccessible.
Downtime is expensive and inconvenient. Using a drone, our engineers can conduct a thorough survey with little to no downtime.
Our equipment won't touch or even go close to your assets. Our high-resolution cameras use optical zoom to give extreme close-up views while staying a safe distance away.
We understand that you need answers fast. We can deliver a plain-English report with clear-cut conclusions in days. Then, you can take the steps you need to and get back to doing what you do best.
Need us there in a hurry? No problem. Let us know what you need, and we can be there on the same day. After all, sometimes the problem just won't wait.
Sometimes the brief can change even in real-time. If need be, you can be stood there right next to the drone operator, directing them as the situation develops.
The safety of your personnel and our own is paramount, and we place it at the forefront of our company culture. Ask us about our HSSE systems and practices.

We take emails, phone calls, messages, everything! If you are unsure of what's possible we are happy to advise, the most important thing is to get in touch. We would be delighted to answer any questions you may have.
With drones, it's best to begin where you want to end up. What sort of deliverable would you like when it's all finished? If you are not sure then we can advise. We can look at what you would like and work backwards from there.
Once we have agreed on what is to be done, the scope of work is set and a price is agreed upon. We feel it is vital that everyone knows what they are getting and what they are paying for it. There should be no confusion.
Once we have confirmation you are happy to proceed, we start the ball rolling. We organise things like RAMS, site permits, Air Traffic Control clearance and much more. Basically, we generate everything needed to turn up on-site with all our ducks in a row.
Next, we do the work on site. We have the gear, we have the know-how, so now it's time to get the job done. This can sometimes be affected by the weather, but for the most part, we get the job done on the date specified.
This is where we take what we generated in the field and turn it into a final deliverable for you. This can be anything from the raw data itself, to fully processed Orthophotos, condition reports, CAD line work or thermal imagery.
The final step is the handover of the deliverables. We tend to use a cloud-based service, so you can access your data anywhere. We can also tie into your existing systems if that is more convenient.
We purchase the latest drones as they come on the market to ensure you are getting the highest quality service from us at all times. Here is a quick look at what we would be most likely to use for a typical 3D mapping inspection.
Our flagship drone: The M300 RTK by DJI is the premier enterprise-level inspection drone on the market. With a flight time of up to 55 minutes, lots of built-in redundancy, and a host of payloads to choose from, this is our go-to UAV for inspection work. When coupled with the Zenmuse H20T camera, it is capable of safely inspecting high-value assets at a stand-off range.
The workhorse of the drone industry. Widely considered to be one of the best drones ever made, the P4P comes alive when coupled with a 20mp camera. If high-quality photos and videos are what you need, this is the drone for you.
Combined with our flagship drone platform DJI M300 RTK, the DJI Zenmuse P1 camera enables photogrammetry and 3D modelling of the highest standard. There are also interchangeable fixed-focus lenses, on a 3-axis stabilized gimbal, that provide robust versatility to help create stunning 2D, 3D detailed models.
Engineers With Drones is the first company in Ireland to hold the new EASA Specific Category authorisation. We are authorised by the Irish Aviation Authority (IAA) and the European Union Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) for commercial Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) operations in both urban and rural environments. Total transparency: our Specific Category Authorisation Number is IRL.UAS.AUTH1002.
All of our operations are insured in the EU and globally. We hold €6.5m public and product liability, €13m employer's liability and €1.3m professional indemnity (base level, coverage raised as required).
We are more than just drone pilots. If you're looking for overhead footage of your wedding reception, we're probably not right for you. Our backgrounds and our primary qualifications are in engineering, and it's here that we think we add the most value. We know what we're looking for, and we know how to find it. If you have a technical engineering problem that a drone can solve, we can understand you. Tell us what you need to see or find out, and our engineers will use their drone piloting skills to make it happen.
Yes. We're a local Irish company, and that's how we can respond so quickly to the needs of our Irish clients. We can be with you in next to no time, with the right equipment and certifications to operate them, whatever your location.
LIDAR is a form of 3D imaging which offers a crystal-clear view of objects, areas and terrains which can otherwise be difficult to reach or visualise. It works by sending a laser beam back and forth (like radar does with sound). It does this thousands of times to produce a highly accurate visual representation of any surface or shape, even through dense vegetation. More about LIDAR...
Moving components within a camera lens provide optical zoom. A zoom lens's internal glass elements move back and forth, resulting in various relative focus lengths. The focus length grows as you zoom in, and it decreases as you zoom out. Unlike digital zoom, optical zoom keeps 100% of the image's resolution.
Thermal imaging, also known as thermography, is a technique that uses heat energy and infrared radiation to record information of objects and produce visual representations, even in low-light conditions. Warmer spots glow red/orange. Cold spots appear green/blue. More about thermal imaging...
UHD or Ultra High Definition signifies that a camera's resolution is 3840x2160 pixels. This is exactly four time higher than high definition cameras (1920x1080 pixels), and so UHD is often also know as 4K. More about drone photography...
