Insitu conducts first commercial UAS operations in PNG
Insitu Commercial Solutions-Australia has conducted a series of aerial data collection operations in Papua New Guinea (PNG) after obtaining its first approval to carry out commercial UAS operations in the country.
During several weeks of operations, Insitu carried out multiple remote sensing activities with visual line of sight UAS in support of earthquake remediation activities for clients in the remote highlands regions.
The advanced UAS light detection and ranging (LiDAR) and photogrammetric sensors collected high resolution datasets that were processed to provide point cloud and imagery products.
Insitu received the approval for commercial UAS operations in late 2018.
Esina Alic, president and CEO, Insitu, said: ‘This endorsement from CASA and PNG will not only mean Insitu is able to expand commercial service-based offerings throughout the Asia Pacific region, but it also will mean that PNG-based enterprise clients now can benefit from the remote sensing technologies that Insitu is providing to mining, oil and gas, environmental and government entities globally.’
Insitu Commercial Solutions-Australia operates through Insitu Pacific.
