Airobotics’ UAS to survey Gulf Port construction

24th May 2018 - 11:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Airobotics has partnered with Shapir-Ashtrom to innovate and automate surveying and mapping for the construction of Israel’s new Gulf Port in Haifa, the company announced on 22 May.

Airobotics has deployed its UAS to assist in surveying reclamation areas, monitoring breakwater construction and stockpile measurements, which increases construction accuracy and accessibility while reducing production costs.

Shapir-Ashtrom is a joint venture between Shapir Civil and Marine Engineering and Ashtrom Properties and is developed specifically for the new Haifa seaport initiative.

Airobotics’ automated UAS have been used for the past eight months for surveying the construction progress. The deployment of UAS for site survey provide results which helps to streamline workflows, eliminate logistical overhead, increase response times and data acquisition pace.

The company’s UAS can also fly at high altitudes without maintaining a line of sight and interfering with construction infrastructure including cranes and large equipment. 

The UAS can survey large areas of up to 5km radius around the docking station, in short mission times of under 45 minutes. Additionally, the automated UAS can plan survey routes in advance.
