Intel is uniquely positioned to offer comprehensive drone services and solutions. Our drone hardware is designed and manufactured to be seamlessly integrated with our advanced flight planning software, Intel® Mission Control Software, and our cloud-based digital asset management platform, Intel® Insight Platform. From the safe and accurate data collection to the storage, management, and processing of your data, you can get that from Intel. Whether you work in utilities, construction, insurance, oil and gas, or agriculture, we’ll help drive the digital transformation for your business.
Intel is addressing critical steps of the drone workflow to accelerate the path from accurate data to actionable insights. And now, the Intel® Insight Platform will help you store, organize, and harness the growing amounts of drone data associated with large assets and sites spread around the world, in a collaborative environment designed to enable geographically dispersed teams in complex multi-party projects. Available for select enterprise customers, the cloud-based platform will help drive unprecedented scale for commercial drones operations.
The Intel® Falcon™ 8+ drone is an advanced commercial multirotor unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) designed for professional use across multiple industries. It features a best weight-to-payload ratio and captures detailed aerial data for 3D reconstruction down to millimeter accuracy. The UAV can be programmed to fly an automated path, capturing photos at predetermined waypoint locations. Its triple redundant autopilot provides remarkable stability, compensating for external factors such as strong winds and offering resistance to electromagnetic fields. This helps ensure high reliability in the field, efficient flights, and precise data with every flight.
The Intel® Sirius™ Pro drone is a fixed-wing UAV ideal for commercial missions that require endurance. Capable of performing fully automatic flights over inaccessible terrain, without the need to set ground control points, this drone may significantly reduce time and cost. The hand launch and stable design makes the Intel® Sirius™ Pro drone easy to handle and safe to operate. The MAVinci Desktop Software combines flight planning and data quality check with integrated export features, delivering high precision, and superior data with every flight.
Across industries Intel® drones services and solutions are being used to increase efficiency, reduce risk, gather more accurate data, and optimize costs. Learn more about real world customer experiences with Intel commercial drones from leaders in construction, utilities, insurance, and oil and gas and see how they are driving business transformation with our aerial solutions.
The construction market is set to grow across all phases of the building lifecycle, from design to construction and operation, and potentially even demolition. More recently in the design phase, drone data and insights lend themselves well to the Building Information Modeling (BIM) approach. In the construction phase, drones offer a quicker way to develop work plans based on-site surveys and can help monitor a site's status while projects are underway. Drones can also offer safe and low-cost inspection solutions and progress monitoring tools to assist with ongoing building operations and management.
Utility asset management will be a critical challenge for the next decade and companies are seeking opportunities for preventive repairs, instead of risking costly outages. Regular inspections by commercial drones like the Intel® Falcon™ 8+ drone, or corridor mapping with Intel® Sirius™ Pro drone are an ideal solution for maintenance. Drones can be the eyes-in-the-sky for power line, pipeline, and clean energy assets utility crews.
Commercial drones are disrupting the oil and gas industry. By utilizing the Intel® Falcon™ 8+ system to conduct close inspections when operations are live and online, companies are realizing decreased downtime, reduced risk to workers, and optimized costs. Additionally, commercial drones are ideal for capturing visual or thermal images of flare stacks, underdecks, cooling towers and chimneys, and confined spaces.
