Waste Management

Drones are offering the waste industry innovative new ways of reducing costs, increasing accuracy of data collection, and providing greater oversight and efficiency in landfill assessment.





Waste Management

Highly accurate 3D models can provide volumetric analysis of areas that are hazardous to inspect from the ground, improving site safety while also allowing operations to continue while the survey is being conducted, resulting in reduced downtime.

Airspace Management

Volumetric analysis of cells can generate airspace calculations in seconds. Periodic surveys can increase the life of cells by tracking compaction rate over time.

Drone mapping saves time and money by providing a detailed overview of their sites in a fraction of the time it takes to do ground inspections.

Compliance Reporting

Airscope offers a cost effective way to collect the data needed to calculate current, changed and remaining airspace for your compliance reports.

Measurements can also be exported into tables and all major GIS software packages including ArcGIS, CAD & Bentley.

Reporting & Communication

Airscope makes it possible to visualize your entire site at any given moment in time and communicate effectively with stakeholders. The result is reduced site visits; saving you time, money, and helping to keep people safe.



- Quick deployment, with easy access to areas otherwise difficult to enter on the ground
- Improved safety in dangerous areas such as the receiving pit at a waste-to-energy plant or transfer station
- Building & Roof Inspections
- Inspection of the earth dikes or outfalls at large leachate or wastewater treatment ponds

Topographic Survey

- Repeatable surveys allow the the monitoring of landfill progress over time
- Tracking the size or location of a landfill work site
- Monitoring the quality and health of plant growth over landfill using NDVI survey
- Volumetric Analysis


- Monitoring of gradients on earthworks
- Monitoring house keeping
- Assessing an accident in which hazardous materials are involved and access to the accident site is difficult
- Use of an infrared camera to spot sub-surface fires
