Teesside drone company DJM Aerial Solutions specialise in high level survey and industrial inspection of assets in the field
High Level Survey
DJM Aerial Solutions are a commercial drone service provider based in the North East that specialise in high level survey and inspection using drone technology. The new technology startup company established itself in the first quarter of 2017 and has gone from strength to strength securing several repeat clients in various industries across the UK.
Their recent high level survey tool the industry-leading collision tolerant and confined space drone the Flyability Elios is their latest machine in a long list of commercial UAV that DJM Aerial Solutions have invested in and operate, allowing for the varied range of services they currently offer.
Dan Maine, Company Director Added, ” The degree of high level survey and inspection we offer range from client to client and we are very flexible with their requirements and can work with them to offer a bespoke package of deliverables if necessary.”

Dan Maine MD added, ” I have personally worked overseas and away from home for the past 20 + years and its taken its toll, I decided enough was enough and made steps to start a business that would be beneficial to the Teesside area”
High level visual inspection has always been the standard in any industry and plays an integral part towards the upkeep of any asset which is the reason for its legal requirement particularly across any site maintenance plan or asset management plan.
Standard methods of high level visual inspection are predominantly carried out using traditional access methods such as a scaffold erection, or rope access. These methods can run into hundreds of thousands when shutting down of the particular asset and months or possibly years of planning are required.
Traditional high level visual inspection can carry a great risk to personnel when arduous levels of access are a constant, and can sometimes be ineffective due to the logistics around the certain piece of plant and not being physically able to get eyes on to analyse particular areas of that asset efficiently.
For example, when a flare stack inspection or boiler stack inspection is required. The particular stack generally has a fixed ladder to an elevated platform beneath the tip of that particular stack. Rope access personnel are primarily utilised in the first instance due to the nature of the inspection, however the inner workings of the actual stack such as the pilot ignition system or upper portions of the windshield are generally well above the fixed platform, making the only feasible method of inspection, erecting a scaffold platform up to that height or employing a crane with maintenance basket to reach the required levels. Both expensive in terms of outage period and general logistics but also carry a hefty degree of risk to personnel.
When adopting drone technology for high level visual stack inspection, the technology or drone can be positioned anywhere across an asset with a specific class of camera to capture data at the hardest to reach areas, this may include thermal data or point cloud for further analysis down the line.
Some of the hardest to reach survey methods on site do include but are not limited to boiler stack inspection (s) or flare tip high level visual inspection, DJM Aerial Solutions, now have the technology and capabilities to carry out both external stack inspection (s) and internal stack inspection (s) using their Matrice 210 and Flyability Elios crash proof drone technology.
