ABOUT US

Cost effective, time efficient airborne solutions
Improvements in technology, driven by billions of dollars of R&D investment into defence and government projects are making their way into commercial and consumer drones rapidly enormously improving the capabilities of the airborne platform.  It’s forecast there be 29 million consumer drone shipments and 800,000 commercial drone shipments in 2021, that’s less than 5 years away.

 

Drones are changing our perspective on the world.

 

The technology is fast approaching complete commercial suitability, fully compliant safety and regulatory standards-based design, platform and payload interchangeability, automated safety modes, enhanced intelligent piloting models and full autonomy, full airspace awareness, auto action (takeoff, land, and mission execution), but we are not quite there yet.

 

We are Innovators...and solution providers

GPAS’s ‘measure twice, cut once’ approach to each and every job using integrated management systems enables us to plan effectively then execute our missions and gather all of the required information correctly, the first time, with the UAV in the air for the minimal amount of time.
