Tasmania deploys drones in $15 million dam project

Tasmania: Tasmania’s statewide water corporation, TasWater, has deployed unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) as part of a major $15 million upgrade of the Ridgeway Dam. The UAVs were deployed during the initial design and investigation phase of the project, ahead of wall strengthening work and an impermeable membrane being attached to the upstream face of the dam planned for 2016 to 2017. Fraser White, Project Director of TasWater, has revealed that the project involves services of commercial UAV operator as well as cloud-based mapping and surveying platform Propeller Aerobotics.
