PACS specialties include but are not limited to LiDAR, Orthomosaic Photogrammetry, Thermal Imagery, and Methane Detection for Construction, Wind Turbines, and Solar Fields.

“Several factors make us extremely unique in this seemingly ever-growing field. We only hire FAA-certified pilots to fly our UAVs. Additionally, we have been granted a Section 333 Exemption from the FAA to conduct commercial UAV flights in the US. PACS is one of only 9 companies to pass the National Unmanned Aircraft Systems Credentialing Program (NUASCP). This is a rigorous testing and vetting process sponsored by a variety of institutions. These institutions include Texas A&M University, TEEX, Lone Star Center for Excellence, the FAA, and NASA. Furthermore, PACS has specifically been recognized for setting a new standard in safety and professionalism. PACS will be deploying new cutting-edge LIDAR systems in August that will set a new industry standard for accuracy and efficiency. Furthermore, we are safe, professional, and fully insured for the client’s sake and ours,” explains Scott McGowan, President.

Precision Aerial has collaborated on a number of “industry firsts”. They have provided successful proof of concept flights as well as successful contracts for industrial, commercial, and government entities. This experience has given Precision Aerial a unique perspective on the advances and uses of UAS technology in a multitude of industries. From oil and gas assets, forestry, and agriculture to construction and bridges. Precision Aerial has the expertise and technology to capture the qualitative data clients need. Moreover, they utilize the latest UAS technology and instrumentation.
