Swathe Airborne Surveys Ltd is a new division of the Swathe Group bringing together aviation services, equipment manufacturers and ten years hands-on experience of bathymetric LiDAR surveying to provide a unique, cost-effective solution to their clients allowing them to expand their survey operations into new, and otherwise inaccessible, areas of marine survey.
Bathymetric LiDAR is widely recognised as being the most cost-efficient and effective way of carrying out detailed bathymetric surveys in shallow water, reefs and complex coastal zones. Swathe Airborne Surveys Ltd (SAS Ltd) now offers that capability to survey companies both large and small, allowing them to expand into markets that may otherwise have been beyond their capability.
SAS Ltd offers a variety of services to their clients including development and consultation, desk studies, reconnaissance, aviation consultancy, flight and logistics planning, processing, client representation and team training.
Swathe Airborne Surveys Ltd can provide LiDAR project managers, LiDAR experienced 'Cat A' hydrographic surveyors for on- or offline QA and QC, flight navigators, system operators, aviation consultants and a range of supporting survey staff.
Their LiDAR team brings a wealth of experience to projects having participated in roles from project management to system operation on projects around the world including Australia, The Indian Ocean, France, Italy and the USA.
Swathe Airborne Surveys Ltd makes bathymetric LiDAR operations accessible to the smallest survey company without the massive capital investment usually involved. Their rental packages include all mission planning and data processing software and with their network of aviation contacts they can source the nearest most suitable aircraft for their clients' surveys.
