    Efficiency

  • DMI’s fuel cell powered drones offer the best solution for large photovoltaic power plants, particularly for panel damage inspection.
  • Over 2 hours of flight time is long enough to inspect up to 43MW-sized PV panels per day with one DMI drone system. This mean users can now precisely scan large PV panels in a short period of time without any plant downtime.
  • Analysis of annual operations and maintenance utilization efficiency shows that a fuel cell powered-drone can save roughly 49% of inspection program costs while delivering over double the productivity of existing battery-powered drones.

Fuel cell drones remove the need for boats or additional stations for inspection.

  • Minimize
    operational
    downtime

  • With an optical camera on a fuel-cell powered drone, you can fly long distances to inspect turbine blades for cracks and maintenance issues.
  • Use thermal imaging cameras on your fuel-cell drone to monitor and avoid turbine overload.
  • By using drones for inspection, you can minimize downtown and take images from any angle without a blind spot.
  • Using drones to inspect far-flung offshore wind farms means less cost, time, and complexity as you can conduct the inspection onshore, without having to take the boat or build offshore drone stations.

Check bridge conditions and perform mandated inspections safely while reducing manned climbing.

  • Increase
    safety

  • Standardize
    operations to
    reduce cost

  • Improve
    efficiency

  • Drones equipped with zoom cameras and thermal imaging sensor help effectively inspect structures with low accessibility.
  • Using drones for pre-climb inspection can prevent accidents, and inspection flights for hard-to-access bridges can look for corrosion, cracks, and deformation of structures and piers.
  • Previously, many workers had to control traffic and close lanes to work with ladder trucks and boats, and battery-powered drones could not be used as a replacement due to short flight time. However, fuel cell drones can be used as a replacement, helping you save cost and secure safety.

In the highway, drones can cover the blind spot of traffic CCTV.

  • Secure Safety

  • Improve traffic
    management

  • Thanks to the long flight time, DMI’s drones can easily fly anywhere for effective traffic enforcement.
  • Drones can also be swiftly dispatched to traffic accident scenes without a police car to prevent secondary accidents.
  • Drones can be used as mobile CCTVs to crack down on speeding vehicles or DUI, preventing violation of traffic regulations, which can lead to traffic accidents.
  • This could encourage drivers to abide by traffic rules and drive safely, contributing to traffic flow during busy hours.

Public & Environment

  • Search & Rescue
  • Forestry Management
  • Water Quality
    Management

In the event of an injured or missing person, long-endurance drone can conduct and facilitate searches and serve as a force-multiplier for ground teams

  • Search vast
    amounts of area

  • Save time
    in conducting
    rescue operations

  • Long-distance
    situational
    intelligence

  • DMI’s long-endurance fuel cell drones equipped with thermal cameras and/or lights can help locate missing persons rapidly by covering significant areas in a single flight.
  • Long-endurance flight means users don’t have to be in the vicinity to control the drone. This lets search operations start immediately even when harsh terrain or heavy traffic delays ground rescue activities.
  • Multiple payload options and long-flight times allows perilous and night-time situation operation in sites and conditions that are difficult to access on the ground.

Precision forestry monitoring over large volumes of forest

  • Cover 2800
    acres a day

  • Reduce
    climbing
    operations

  • Save cost
    and improve
    precision

  • DMI’s fuel cell powered-drones can fly over 2 hours, allowing one drone to monitor up to 2800 acres of forests per day.
  • Reduce mountain climbing and setup by controlling the drone from the ground, saving valuable time and adding convenience to forestry inspection and management.
  • With long-endurance flight, users can precisely check the growth of plants and pest infection while saving costs by up to 23% compared to battery-powered drones (when managing a 400,000 hectares of area in a year).

You can check the condition of the river without taking a boat and also collect samples.

  • No need for
    a boat

  • Environmental
    Improvement

  • Drones topped with hyperspectral sensors can be utilized for precisely scanning and analyzing green algae.
  • Unlike previous sampling method of collecting samples from a moving boat, drones with high mobility can take pictures to check current condition of green algae while flying and collect samples if needed.
  • With longer flight time, fuel cell drones can understand distribution pattern from a wider area to analyze the cause of occurrence and spread pattern, thereby preventing further spread of green algae and controlling water quality.

Mining & Construction

  • Mining
  • Construction

At large mining sites, drones perform multiple tasks to increase productivity, save money, and increase safety & security.

  • Effectively
    and precisely
    map large areas

  • Save time &
    cost versus
    terrestrial
    scanning

  • Increase
    safety &
    reduce risk

  • Aureately calculate output and progress to save costs by tracking the volume of soils and minerals using aerial 3D mapping.
  • Monitor and document materials, equipment and transit routes for improved operational workflow
  • Long-endurance fuel cell powered drones can cover even large mining sites in a single flight, versus using multiple batteries and flight locations.
  • Improve the safety of workers and prevent accidents by using aerial scanning over manual materials climbing.

No matter how large the site, with hydrogen fuel cells you can conduct inspections, create 3d models and track assets in a single flight.

  • Extended
    monitoring and
    inspection

  • Fly longer

Logistics

  • Delivery

You can deliver items to a remote location where the battery drones can never reach.

  • Deliver for
    longer
    distance

  • Hard to

  • Emergency
    delivery

  • Fuel cell drones allow you to deliver packages anywhere without geographical limitation including places that are difficult to access such as islands and mountains.
  • Its delivery distance is significantly longer than battery-powered drones. Cost, time, and complexity can also be greatly reduced since you will need less number of drones and less investment in logistics network i.e. stop-over stations, which are required for battery-powered drones.
  • Fuel cell drones are applicable to various types of delivery including emergency delivery of relief items or medical supplies.

Others

  • Lighting

During the night search, our drone will keep the scene bright more consistently than the illuminating shell.
