Thermal Detection Surveys for Marine Mammal and Seabirds
One of our research specialties is marine mammal and seabird
thermal surveys. By using thermal imaging we can detect and identify species both day and night.
By allowing marine mammal and seabird species to be thermally viewed in real time and recorded night and day, nocturnal occurrence and movements can be detected and mapped, and behaviour observed and recorded.
We have successfully conducted thermal survey for seabirds, seals, whales, and dolphins, including detecting and identifying Maui and Hector's dolphins, two of the smallest and rarest dolphins in the world.
We can deliver thermal surveys from land, sea (boat based) and air (aircraft and drone). Our aerial drone thermal survey capability, can be launched from land and boat, and provides us with a survey platform to deliver surveys over the sea, along beaches and shorelines, and along the faces of cliffs. This allows us to detect and survey seabirds, seals, whales and dolphins at night using thermal imaging, as well as during the day using our drone's HD video and thermal imaging capability.
We have the proven specialist equipment, methodology, skills, experience and expertise of thermal detection field operations, thermal analysis and species identification.
We can deploy anywhere in the world and operate from vessel, land, or air, to deliver thermal detection capability night and day for surveys, monitoring, EIA, and MMO purposes. Please contact us to discuss contracting our thermal detection services.
We can also provide thermal equipment via custom order by arrangement. Please see our Equipment Provision page for more details.
