Aerodyne Group’s investment in the Middle East’s largest drone solutions company marks the first of its kind deal in the region. Proud to be UAE home-grown, FEDS was established in 2014, and in a short period has become the only company from the Middle East to be named as one of the top drone service providers in the world.

FEDS has conducted thousands of commercial operations for some of the biggest companies in the Middle East, while Aerodyne itself is already a global leader with more than 300,000 infrastructure assets inspected and managed across 25 countries. Both companies are ranked among the top 20 drone service providers by Drone Industry Insights, a leading source for independent drone market intelligence.

The investment of Aerodyne, the world’s leading drone service provider, in FEDS is part of the Group’s aggressive two-year global plan which will potentially see the completion of seven M&As within the period. In December 2019, Aerodyne announced a similar strategic alliance with Measure UAS in America. Discussions between Aerodyne and FEDS started in the second half of 2019.

The strategic investment will allow FEDS to further strengthen its position in the Middle East with DT^3 (Drone Technology, Data Technology, and Digital Transformation) technology from Aerodyne.

This investment, on the other hand, would allow Aerodyne Group to leverage FEDS' strong growth trajectory and financial performance to further enhance value for its shareholders. FEDS will also contribute significantly to Aerodyne’s global vision in geospatial and GRID management solutions.

Drones can help improve these. Read on to find out how. What are the Benefits of Drone Surveying and How Does it Work? https://www.feds.ae/blog/drone-surveying-benefits-industries https://www.feds.ae/blog/drone-surveying-benefits-industries Wed, 03 Feb 2021 16:41:45 +0400 The applications of drone surveying are numerous, and drone data assists multiple industries in various project stages. Learn how you can benefit from it. Drone surveys are a faster, safer and more cost-effective way to survey at a height. Whether referred to as Unmanned Aerial System (UAS), Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV), or aerial surveys, this innovative approach to capturing data from the air is fast becoming the surveying method of choice across many industries.

Various deliverables are made available from drone data, depending on the industry and range of intuitive data sensors -- or payloads -- attached to the drone. These payloads are interchangeable, making the drone a very versatile piece of equipment that becomes just as useful in the inspection phase as it is in the surveying phase.

Can the Use of Drones in the Oil & Gas Industry Overcome Challenges? https://www.feds.ae/blog/use-of-drones-in-oil-and-gas-industry https://www.feds.ae/blog/use-of-drones-in-oil-and-gas-industry Wed, 03 Feb 2021 16:42:05 +0400 The oil and gas industry faces a number of challenges and that includes ROI. How can drones address this as well as the most common issues in the industry? Drone technology is increasingly being taken up by a multitude of industries, and is versatile enough to benefit various projects within those sectors. There are a broad range of applications across the utilities industry, green energy sector, and construction industry -- just to name a few.

This article, however, will focus on the usage of drones specifically within the Oil & Gas industry. From site surveying to routine maintenance, drones are useful at almost every step of the way. The various sensors mounted to the drone enable it to gather data faster, with precision, and possess the ability to locate excess heat, leaks and spills at the same time; vastly improving safety and preventing downtime.

Construction Progress Monitoring: Saving Time & Money with FEDS https://www.feds.ae/blog/construction-progress-monitoring-save-time-and-money https://www.feds.ae/blog/construction-progress-monitoring-save-time-and-money Wed, 03 Feb 2021 16:42:23 +0400 Stay on-schedule and within budget with drones. Find out how the use of drones in construction progress monitoring can benefit a multitude of projects. rework increases total construction costs by 5% on average.

Identifying and dealing with the various hazards posed on construction sites is another ongoing process due to the site’s ever-changing nature. While it is typically a time-consuming and labour-intensive task, this need not be the case -- as we will address later in this article.

It is no secret that time is money, and labour costs only increase with time. Rework requirements put further pressure on budgets, causing reputations being poorly affected when deadlines are not achieved and budgets are exceeded. However, with the advent and consequent advancement of drone technology, this can all be avoided.

Keeping in mind the time that goes into traditional versus drone construction progress monitoring, we will now look at how drones are making it possible to save time spent on previously labour-intensive tasks; and how they are therefore saving money on construction projects.]]>
What to Look for When Hiring a Commercial Drone Company https://www.feds.ae/blog/hiring-commercial-drone-company https://www.feds.ae/blog/hiring-commercial-drone-company Tue, 23 Feb 2021 12:34:03 +0400 There is a great deal of research you can do when looking to hire a commercial drone company, but here are five of the most important factors to consider. Drones come in many shapes and sizes, with a multitude of interchangeable payloads, making them highly adaptive and useful across many industries. Whether for monitoring construction, surveying land, conducting overhead powerline maintenance, measuring the viability of solar panel cells, through to precise agriculture; the applications of drones are numerous. But they are only worthwhile when using a highly skilled and experienced team of drone operators.

The question then arises: how do we distinguish between the professional and amateur drone service providers? And this is what we will be addressing within this article. From the most important aspects of company research, to the questions you should be asking each company you are considering; this article will help you find the perfect commercial drone provider for your project.

How Drones Make Metro Tunnel Inspections Faster, Safer, and Cost-Effective https://www.feds.ae/blog/how-drones-make-metro-tunnel-inspections-faster-safer-and-cost-effective https://www.feds.ae/blog/how-drones-make-metro-tunnel-inspections-faster-safer-and-cost-effective Thu, 18 Mar 2021 10:37:06 +0400 Tunnel inspections is a dangerous operation, traditionally conducted manually by inspectors walking through dark, damp and dusty environments with apparent tripping hazards lined with gas and electricity lines. Drones are now transforming this process, safeguarding inspectors and delivering high quality footage, reports and 3-D reality captures. The end result is a slow, dangerous and ineffective process made faster, safer and cost-effective by FEDS-Drone Powered Solutions.

Without an operational flare stack, the gases have nowhere to go and could cause a plant shutdown- a report by Honeywell estimates that up to 1 million US dollars can be lost per day of flare stack downtime. Drones can enable Oil & Gas plants with regular and precise data that companies can use to adopt a more preventive maintenance approach and drastically reduce downtime. a report by Honeywell estimates that up to 1 million US dollars can be lost per day of flare stack downtime.
