The company says it now offers the following services: aerial photography and mapping, aerial inspection and inventory, topographic mapping, change detection, infrastructure monitoring, conveyance evaluation, resource management, volumetric surveys, vegetation monitoring, and wildlife and livestock surveys.
“This developing technology will allow us to safely gather timely information so our project managers and clients can make better management decisions,” says Jack Bedessem, company president.
According to the exemption grants from the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), the company is authorized to operate the Altavian Nova R8400, DJI S1000, DJI Inspire 1 and DJI Phantom 3 Professional. Trihydro is headquartered in Laramie, Wyo., and operates in 17 locations nationwide.
