Oil companies are deploying UAVs as they move towards non-conventional sources and more challenging environments. Applications include oil and gas exploration, inspection and monitoring of pipelines and oil and gas operational use.
The Skeldar V-200 provides a cost effective and safe solution by carrying out aerial exploration. It can provide visual images and 3D map creation for prospective sites and surroundings. Valuable data gathered by UAVs can be used to improve operations, production and efficiency, in addition to being able to forecast and address breakdowns.
From oil and gas pipelines and storage tanks to nuclear and power generation facilities, the requirement to ensure round the clock vigilance should be a priority in any strategic asset protection plan.

- Access locations that pose health, safety and environmental risk to personnel
- Real-time data transmission
- Fast on-site deployment of UMS SKELDAR’s platforms
- Authorised and qualified UAV-inspection personnel
- Reduced downtime increases overall efficiency
Containing and preventing pollution is key when protecting humans and wildlife. Our UAV portfolio can help prevent and mitigate various disasters such as harmful chemical spillages.
Our UAV portfolio, with Remote Pilot Station (RPS) support from air, sea or land assets, provides highly optimised co-ordination on the implementation of Search & Rescue missions.
Our UAVs are designed with solutions such as LiDAR (Light Detection and Ranging) that can distinguish targets and scope territory in hard-to-access areas quickly and efficiently.
Infrastructure must be routinely inspected to ensure its structural integrity and security. Our UAVs can complete these tasks quicker and safer compared to traditional manned exercises.
Controlling, containing and preventing pollution is key when protecting humans and wildlife across the world. UMS SKELDAR provides a range of command and control/surveillance options through its multi-role Vertical Take Off and Landing (VTOL) platforms to help prevent or mitigate natural or man-made disasters including oil and harmful chemical spillages.
Search and rescue
From high profile disaster recovery and rescue missions to co-ordination of sea, land and air assets, UMS SKELDAR’s Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) platforms are ideally suited to support customers in civilian and security agencies tasked with implementation of Search & Rescue (SAR) missions. Our multi-platform portfolio, with Remote Pilot Station (RPS) support from air, sea or land assets (or a combination) provide highly optimised co-ordination.
From security to mapping, scoping territory on land is a challenge in all terrains.
At UMS SKELDAR, our Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) are designed with state-of-the-art solutions including LiDAR (Light Detection and Ranging) to distinguish targets. LiDAR uses advanced methods to send laser pulses in certain areas, detecting the speed of reflection to recreate and map boundaries on land.
Airborne Light Detection and Ranging, or LiDAR, is revolutionising the way many industries gather data. With applications from pipeline, transmission line, highway and railway corridor surveys to coastal, forestry and flood plain surveys, LiDAR, or laser mapping, has the ability to penetrate difficult to access areas quickly and efficiently.
Our drones can deploy LiDAR over any area where gathering data is required, eliminating risks to manned crews across difficult terrain whilst also decreasing the associated costs of journeys and/or aborted missions.
3D laser mapping saves time, delivering real-time results faster than ever. Our sensors provide increased visibility by penetrating through terrains including forests in different weather conditions, resulting in a detailed 3D view.
Many organisations have invested heavily in deploying large infrastructure across an expansive geographic network, sometimes even spanning continents and countries. This includes power lines, mobile phone towers, electricity grids, oil pipelines and offshore wind farms. Infrastructure must be routinely inspected to not only ensure its structural integrity for continuing safe operations, but also to monitor for intruders and other potential trespassers.
Traditionally, inspections have been completed by deploying teams of personnel. However, these types of examinations often entail high risk situations and very lengthy journeys requiring each team member to spend a long time in the field. UMS SKELDAR provides a range of Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) capable of completing these tasks as cost-effective alternatives to manned crews.
