Our Services

Renewable Energy

The integrity and inspection of these valuable provisions becomes more important every day. UAS are capable of close visual inspection of alternative facilities such as wind turbines, hydro-electric dams and solar farms. Precise inspections can be obtained safely and much more quickly than conventional methods. Unmanned technology allows us to inspect these facilities without any interruption to operations. The founders of Raptor have decades of experience in this area and continue to specialise within the renewables industry.

Oil and Gas

The founders of Raptor are highly experienced operators in this field. We feel at home in this environment and we understand the importance that these assets must be maintained and secured. Safety is an essential part of the Oil Gas industry and nobody knows this better than us. Unmanned aerial vehicles are immune to the most hazardous environments such as tanks and flare stacks. Our pilots can operate safely during day or night equipped with an array of visual and sensory technology. Oil and Gas operators can trust Raptor to carry out inspections safe in the knowledge we have decades of experience in this industry. The use of our technology to support the oil and gas operators can dramatically reduce costs due to no shut down of plant.


This is an extremely important British and European industry. Through 3D mapping and infrared technology Raptor can help clients react more quickly to threats and estimate crop yields. This will in turn give the client the ability to manage crops more efficiently.
