Fulcrum use Remotely Operated Robotic Technology to provide safe and effective access to hazardous environments remotely. We perform inspection, survey and intervention using the latest unmanned robotic technologies and sensors. A leader in Australian robotics inspection and testing service providers, Fulcrum are the first company with the ability to mobilise multiple unmanned systems and sensors in the air across land and the sea. We combine our technology with skilled senior staff who have decades of experience in consulting with environmental engineering and regulatory bodies.
Fulcrum has been working with the major Australian Aquaculture companies for many years. We have established long term service contracts with clients and pride ourselves on our reliable and accurate services. With third party audited ISO certification in Quality, Safety and Environmental systems you can engage us with confidence.
Our senior staff have decades of experience in consulting environmental engineering companies and regulatory entities. We understand that the potential application of Robotics for mapping and monitoring within the environmental sector is almost endless. The high-resolution aerial imagery can be used to identify existing features either through visual observation or automated classification techniques.
Fulcrum has been working with the forestry sector since 2013. We have developed tools to help effectively manage plantations and monitor regeneration.
Investment in large grid-scale wind and solar has boomed over the past decade. Fulcrum has been providing topographical land surveys to developers and monitoring assets throughout this time. We have also conducted asset inspections and condition assessments. Robotic survey and inspection services has been demonstrated to assist with the development and maintenance of solar and wind energy developments.
Over the past 7+ years drones have become established as an integral tool in the kit for surveyors. With the capability to capture data accurately, safely and efficiently, the technology has been widely adopted. The perceived simplicity however has seen many questionable practices that have led to poor data outcomes.
Since 2014 we have been leading the charge on providing quality drone survey data capture services. Our comprehensive ISO 9001 certified quality assurance checks and processes give our clients confidence in reliable and repeatable data.
We work with a range of survey companies providing cost-effective aerial data capture services. Some survey companies have their own drone resources but prefer to commission us to complete the larger projects. Other survey firms prefer to engage us to undertake all drone-related tasks whereby not taking on the technical, commercial and financial risks themselves.
We offer photogrammetric and LiDAR capability and have worked through all the issues associated with data volumes and format compatibility for survey clients.
Landfill sites are dynamic and solid waste organisations increasingly require frequent and detailed survey information to manage this ever-changing environment.
Our methods allow for more frequent surveys to provide the data you need to tightly manage your site. Our approach provides high-resolution and accurate survey outputs. We offer a higher spatial resolution than traditional ground or aerial survey and eliminate the need to access active areas.
Typical turnaround time from a survey data capture to delivery is 72 hours. Data can be supplied in either local grid or MGA and is typically compressed and thinned to mitigate problems associated with drone data volume.
