Industry Leading Products

Regardless of the task at hand, Cloud City Drones provides a complete lineup of the highest rated industry tools to help get the job done.

Matrice 300 RTK

The Matrice 300 RTK is DJI’s latest commercial drone platform that takes inspiration from modern aviation systems. Offering up to 55 minutes of flight time, advanced AI capabilities, 6 Directional Sensing & Positioning, and more, the M300 RTK sets a whole new standard by combining intelligence with high-performance and unrivaled reliability.

Mavic 2 Enterprise

Designed to empower a new generation of workers, the Mavic 2 Enterprise is the ultimate expression of a tool that delivers beyond expectation to meet current workplace challenges and future demands.

Phantom 4 RTK

A new RTK module is integrated directly into the Phantom 4 RTK, providing real-time, centimeter-level positioning data for improved absolute accuracy on image metadata. In addition to optimized flight safety and precise data collection, the Phantom 4 RTK stores satellite observation data to be used for Post Processed Kinematics (PPK), which can be conducted using DJI Cloud PPK Service*.

EVO II DUAL

Resolutions up to 640x512 enable EVO II Dual pilots to capture subjects with great detail from up to 146 meters - 4x farther than any aircraft of its class. Manufactured in the USA.

Applications

Oil & Gas

Protect workers from hazardous sites and materials while quickly addressing asset issues. Keep operations running while critical inspections are conducted using a variety of cameras and sensors. Help monitor and manage long pipelines spread across different geographies, identifying leakages or anomalies quickly

Rapidly and remotely inspect, map, and monitor facilities such as flare stacks and cooling towers from the ground without stopping operations. Identify leakages quickly and accurately using drones equipped with specialized sensors, keeping personnel safe and enabling timely decision making.

Gain a live aerial overview of pipeline conditions and monitor potential risks regularly to identify issues early on and address them in a timely manner. Identify leakages quickly and accurately using drones equipped with specialized sensors, keeping personnel safe and enabling timely decision making.

Electricity

Manage Electrical Grids and Plants with drone Solutions and Monitor Construction, Conduct Inspections and perform Maintenance with Ease. Deliver detailed and accurate data on all parts of the grid, automating inspection, enabling timely repairs, and reducing downtime.

  • Fly over buildings and obstacles, and see through smoke with thermal cameras to help prioritize targets
  • Stream live video intelligence back to command centers to align teams and eliminate uncertainty
  • Leverage high-resolution cameras to remotely monitor remaining threats and document damage for future analysis
  • Bypass natural obstacles and quickly scout high-risk forested regions from above
  • Fly above the tree-line to quickly ascertain the scope of the fire, and establish firelines and firebreaks
  • With an eye in the sky, incident commanders can determine where to deploy resources

  • Surveying drones and software solutions combine multiple types of geographic information to create 2D orthomosaics and 3D models to help with classification and planning.
  • Drones can be operated in complex terrains, with intelligent features that follow the terrain to ensure flight safety without compromising data accuracy.
  • The 2D maps and 3D models generated are compatible with a variety of GIS software, so results can be quickly visualized for timely adjustments.

Electricity

Manage Electrical Grids and Plants with drone Solutions and Monitor Construction, Conduct Inspections and perform Maintenance with Ease. Deliver detailed and accurate data on all parts of the grid, automating inspection, enabling timely repairs, and reducing downtime.

Quickly map power line corridors, creating accurate 2D and 3D models that measure the distance between vegetation and power lines, helping to maintain a safe clearance distance. Conduct frequent, on-demand inspections to monitor the safety, reliability, and integrity of the power grid, improving efficiency and eliminating risks. Capture the status of the asset from multiple angles using drones to reveal any faults or defects and address them in a timely manner.

Send drones instead of inspection personnel into the boiler for an automated, complete internal inspection without shutting down opeartions, while keeping inspectors safe. Conduct automated flights up and around wind turbines to document their conditions and zoom in to defects for timely repairs. Gain real-time temperature readings of solar panels using drones equipped with visual and radiometric thermal sensors to immediately identify abnormalities.

Architecture, Engineering, and Construction (AEC)

Create 3D models with accurate positioning data that can be readily fitted into the BIM models to visualize designs. Designs can be optimized using drone-created 3D models that are compatible with a variety of GIS software.

BIM designs can be quite different from the reality model, making it difficult to visualize and verify the design. Drones can map large work sites to acquire detailed, precise data. 2D maps and 3D models help teams optimize project planning and designs. Obtain accurate volume measurements of stockpiles and construction aggregates using 3D models built with aerial images. 

Drones can take high-resolution close-up photos of buildings to create detailed models for inspection. Quickly map and model buildings to digitize the inspection and maintenance process, reducing costs while keeping personnel safe. Build detailed 3D models of cultural and natural heritage sites, digitizing assets for preservation and education.
