Infrastructure / Surveillance / Development
Vertical Services Integration (VSI) can provide an unmatched aerial platform for corporate entities, governmental agencies, event staff, developers, planners, and assessors to accomplish their goals and improve the results of their efforts in many areas of preparation, development, assessment, and supervision. The unique capabilities and options afforded with helicopter platform services far exceeds the opportunities and results of existing fixed-wing aerial services, and will exceedingly enhance current ground-based efforts and limitations in a wide variety of mission assignments.
The ability to provide efficient, complete, and mass evaluation and analysis of utility, infrastructure, commercial, residential, and environmental projects has proven the effectiveness and necessity of utilizing helicopter services to ‘get the complete picture’ of projects large and small. Planning, verification, assessment, development, and documentation phases of projects can be improved, expedited, and assured of completeness of scope with the top-down analysis and wide area assessment capabilities of helicopters.
Infrastructure/Power Line Patrol
The intrinsic capabilities of helicopters have made them the platform of choice for utility maintenance and assessment missions such as power line patrol, pipeline survey, gas service tracing, and telecommunications infrastructure integrity monitoring. Large highway construction projects, interchange design, road route selection and impact studies, railroad track surveys, and hazardous materials handling and transportation planning can be facilitated with the wide-area incident management capabilities, long distance perspective and evaluation, and comprehensive scene assessment from the enhanced aerial platform service from VSI.
Traffic patterns, flow, and alternatives can be rapidly evaluated and reported to insure timely and valuable information to planners, supervisors, control agents, and the general public. Radio and Television station broadcasts and public safety patrol can provide unmatched levels of coverage and service from above without interfering with ground operations or the hindrances and obstructions experienced with land-based surveillance.
Large organizational activities, civic events, large-scale gatherings, and public events can be efficiently planned, monitored, supervised and evaluated with the low altitude, slow speed, and hovering capability of helicopters. Concerts, sporting events, community activities, and large venue gatherings can be effectively, efficiently, and economically monitored and supervised with substantially decreased personnel requirements and control facilities and demands. Law enforcement agencies can effectively monitor, control, and evaluate large scale events and scenes with minimal personnel and the invaluable benefit of airborne wide area incident management capabilities.
Commercial, industrial, and residential developers can benefit from VSI aerial services during the entire development process from initial discovery, analysis and evaluation, to planning and surveying work, onward with the project through the construction phase and progress documentation requirements, to final project completion documentation and the development of sales, marketing tools, and photo presentation material.
Commercial developers can easily get the ‘big picture’ including site proximity to highway, railway, water, or other transportation infrastructure, civic infrastructure-schools, parks, etc., competition and complimentary business partners, and preview future expansion capabilities or limitations. Periodic construction progress documentation can be performed to insure compliance with deadlines and construction plans, and new businesses can utilize the final project views for marketing, website and advertising purposes.
Residential developers can ‘get the lay of the land’ for plat division and phase planning, infrastructure and utility connection, road routing and landscaping options, and progress analysis and monitoring. Completion options include marketing and sales presentations, customer/client overview aerial tours, and insurance and public/civic documentation services.
