DIMflight – Digitization Services for Critical Assets and Infrastructures

DIMflight – UAV-supported digitization service for critical assets and infrastructures from TÜV Rheinland

Safe and efficient display, measurement and analysis with our UAV services

Inspection and maintenance services used to evaluate critical infrastructures, such as electricity or telecommunications masts, wind turbines and photovoltaic plants, as well as assess the agricultural, logistic and public safety sectors are very time-consuming and cost-intensive. Specially trained personnel protected by a high level of occupational safety have traditionally been required to ensure appropriate and reliable management of impassable buildings, locations, or large areas in all climate or weather scenarios.

Now, imaging and surveying of critical assets and infrastructures provided by UAV (unmanned aerial vehicles/drones) technology help you master these challenges with minimal personnel and logistical effort. Digital Infrastructure Management (DIM) strategies are used for the professional evaluation and analysis of drone collected data.

Our experts provide you with reliable support in recording and evaluating critical assets and infrastructures using UAV. We determine and coordinate appropriate procedures and actions according to your requirements to provide you optimum results. Data and analyses, including 3D models, thermal images, videos, etc., are securely stored and processed in our DIM platform. Our DIM cloud solution ensures that the recorded information is available to you at any time anywhere in the world.

High flexibility and efficiency with UAV technology

Benefit from position-accurate data acquisition, cost reduction, flexibility and more with our drone measurements | TÜV Rheinland

Our DIMflight UAV services provide significant advantages

Eliminating the need for expensive lifting platforms, cranes and scaffolding as well as specially trained personnel and regulated safe workplaces, drones can be used according to your individual needs to save you significant time and money. UAV technology allows you to easily access even hard-to-reach areas in the shortest possible time. High scalability and position-accurate data acquisition provide you with reliable results. Our DIMflight services enable you to inspect areas quickly, inexpensively and non-destructively, to reduce your downtimes and associated production losses, or to optimize your interests in the areas of agriculture, logistics and public safety. Benefit from the structured data management in our modern and secure DIM cloud solution. Our digital and interactive DIM platform provides you a holistic information and data pool including evaluation and workflow management.

Our UAV service for your critical assets and infrastructures

We offer you a comprehensive end-2-end UAV service for the scanning and analysis of critical assets and infrastructures. Large areas as well as buildings that are difficult to access can be quickly and accurately recorded. UAV-provided images can be displayed in a 3D model via Drone2Map and are securely stored in the DIM platform.

Potential areas of application for our drone surveying – from thermal and multispectral imaging to sonar measurement | TÜV Rheinland

Our UAV service is suitable for the following areas of application:

Thermal imaging

  • Capture of individual images or videos (no surveys planned)
  • Dual system: Merging captured temperatures and the shaded RGB image captured by residual light cameras
  • Requirement evaluation: Recognition of temperature differences on color basis; leakage detection, analysis of cumulative energy balance

Gas detection

  • Recording and documentation of the determined gas values according to UAV position

Radioactivity measurement

  • Photography of the Geiger counter attached to the UAV depending on the position of the drone

Application: Inspection of import-export logistic areas, e.g. container harbors, airports, industrial areas

Multispectral recordings

  • Recording for the acquisition of data with different wavelengths
  • Application: Agriculture
  • Requirement Evaluation: Condition comparisons, pest plant / useful plant recognition, volumetric and positioning dosing for pesticide and fertilizer

Antenna test flights

  • Measurement of radio antenna transmission power and radio wave distribution
  • Radio field and network planning
    • Exchange with specialized company advised

Sonar measurement

  • Locating objects under water using sound impulses
    • Water corpses, missing persons search, object identification

Our modern and secure DIM platform provides you the possibility to optimally visualize, structure and evaluate your data. Our DIM cloud solution simultaneously offers you flexible worldwide access to your data.
