The Rise of the Drones will tell the fascinating story of how radiation monitoring took the air with advanced drone technology to enable the safe monitoring of the hazardous environment around Fukushima.

Drones have applications to all of industry and can be used for both outdoor and indoor surveys to assist with condition monitoring and other tasks at sites in otherwise difficult to access locations. Drones can provide a rapid response to access a problem that could take hours to reach with scaffolding.

Compared to the helicopter type drones that may last minutes to a few hours, when using airship technology a drone can stay in the air for days or longer.
