  • Autonomous turnkey drone-in-a-box systems, ideally suited for perimeter security applications and autonomous beyond visual line of sight (BVLOS) data collection applications;
  • Turnkey public and private sector application-specific inspection solutions;
  • Turnkey public and private sector geospatial and GIS solutions;
  • Manned and unmanned remotely sensed data collection services, including High-resolution video, imagery (RGB, thermal, multispectral), ground penetrating radar (GPR), and LIDAR. We have a network of more than ten thousand manned and unmanned aerial service provider partners located in over 165 countries worldwide;

  • Custom automated industry-specific analytic solutions, from feature recognition, to sophisticated time series analysis, to metered energy efficiency analysis, to custom artificial intelligence image analysis;
  • Photogrammetric processing of all types including digital surface and terrain maps, contour maps, multispectral index maps, thermal maps and many others
  • LIDAR processing services, accurate Digital Terrain Maps, and integrated LIDAR/imagery maps & models;
  • Ground penetrating radar (GPR) solutions;
  • 3D photomesh image processing services and analytics;
  • HD Video production services;
  • And training services to clients worldwide.

Icaros has pioneered the use of state-of-the-art sensors, manned and unmanned aircraft sensor systems, high resolution RGB, multispectral and thermal imagery, oblique-angle photography for 3D modeling, HD video, ground penetrating radar (GPR), and LIDAR and we are experts in applying various photogrammetric processing and 3D modeling techniques.

In addition to custom services we offer, we also offer the following products:
