State-of-the-art drone services technology to support traditional forestry, agricultural and environmental practices – for improved efficiency, access, and safety.
Drone technology offers a fast and accurate method of capturing high-quality data, photos, and videos.
Save on People-Power
Time-intensive tasks requiring costly on-the-ground teams can now be conducted from above!
A better way to observe and monitor difficult-to-access, dangerous or remote locations.
Monitoring large assets and areas can be time-intensive and costly
Rencon offers a wide variety of effective land and asset monitoring services. We work with the forestry, agricultural, government and environmental sectors, to gather important data and high-quality imagery.
Traditionally, multiple workers have been required to perform these sorts of tasks manually, on-the-ground. This often demands large teams with long periods of time spent in difficult to access (and sometimes hazardous!) environments.
Take to the skies with our drone services!
Specialty commercial drone services automate time-intensive, manual land and asset management processes. This equals a faster and more affordable approach!
Drones – also known as Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) – are fitted with leading-edge camera equipment, and operated by highly-skilled remote pilots. This overcomes access issues by monitoring and capturing accurate, real-time data and imagery from above.

Drone Inspection Solutions
Drone Asset Inspection
Drone-conducted inspections are fast becoming the option of choice for the maintenance of valuable industry assets including industrial roofs and wind turbines, as well as image capture of important and sensitive projects.
Drones operated by skilled remote pilots can easily capture vital data and imagery for analysis. This allows inspectors and surveyors to avoid risky situations involving remote locations, great heights, and dangerous equipment.
Drone LiDAR image capture
By using the latest LiDAR technology we can survey properties or projects almost anywhere in Australia, and provide accurate 3D modelling of terrain and vegetation.
Its advanced capabilities mean LiDAR is fast becoming an essential multi-purpose planning and forecasting tool for a broad cross section of industries.
Aerial Thermal Imaging
Our drones are fitted with military-grade thermal imaging camera equipment. This enables the detection of heat emissions from specific objects or areas of land, presented in the form of digital imagery.
This advanced technology underpins services including the detection of heat loss and insulation issues, leaking pipes, and bushfire hotspots.
Drone Koala Detection
Rencon’s commercial-grade drones are combined with leading thermal imaging and sensor technologies. This enables us to work with landowners in the accurate identification and geotagging of all kinds of native fauna, including koalas.
Our expert pilots can quickly identify animals that would be difficult to identify from the ground.

How high can your drones UAV’s fly?
In accordance with Australian law, our drones must not fly higher than 120 meters (400 feet). This is more than high enough to accurately conduct all the aerial surveying services Rencon is known for.
Hidden First Field
What if we have bad weather on the day?
If unfavourable weather conditions prevail on the planned day you will be notified and the flights will be re-scheduled. This will usually happen the day or night prior. If unforecast, minor conditions arise on the day itself, the pilot will usually standby until these have passed. However, if this weather sets in, the flights will resume at the next available opportunity.
How many people do you send to operate the UAV drone?
This depends on the size and scope of your project. During initial client conversations, we work to ascertain what will be required in terms of people-power and equipment, to ensure the best outcomes.
How much do your services cost?
The majority of drone service pricing is calculated at an hourly rate. However, only after careful assessment at project commencement will the most cost-effective quote be provided for the client’s consideration.
What is the process around each drone operation?
Every operation is different, depending on the size, scope, and what the client is hoping to achieve. We spend time at the start of every project considering our client’s needs and objectives. The insights gained are then used to develop plans outlining our recommended approach, including the people and technologies required.
