They specialize in understanding customer requirements, building, and system-integrating UAV sensors, and providing drone data solutions that deliver high-quality results. 

These include UAS consulting, UAV building, and system integration, pilot and safety training, maintenance of UAVs, and much more. Our reputation and professionalism have helped to obtain hard to get exclusive permits to fly in restricted areas.

Charis UAS’s drone technology has had an extensive social impact across the African continent. 

Through their advanced aerial analytics, they have allowed governments and other high-profile clients to make more informed decisions that improve crop production, advance energy programs, protect local environments, and even save lives.

How it Works

Construction Site Monitoring

Charis UAS deploys our technologically advanced unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) to monitor and document all aspects of your construction project, from site scouting to the outcome. 

Their drones offer remote capabilities that make it safe and easy to inspect your sites, all while delivering high-resolution imagery and 360-degree graphics.

UAV technology can transform your project in a variety of ways. The use of drones in construction is not only quick and easy to implement but it also:

  • Improves communication and builds trust with stakeholders
  • Files all drone data in a single, easy-to-use platform
  • Detects and corrects plan defects and deviations
  • Streamlines decision-making with the visual context of site conditions
  • Keeps project under budget

Additionally, their construction monitoring drones have overseen projects worth more than 30 million USD, among them Carnegie Mellon University Rwanda, luxurious hotels, and residential homes across Africa.

Aerial Photography

Whether it be for civil, artistic, or personal use, aerial photography captures breathtaking scenery and unforgettable moments in detail. Charis UAS’s UAVs offer 360º panorama photography, giving you a complete and unique aerial view.

On top of that Charis UAS can capture awesome shots thanks to their specially equipped drones for film production, outdoor and indoor event filming, and enabling other unique and original panoramic perspectives in high-quality HD video. They obtain spectacular results thanks to the advanced stabilization systems on both the drone and its filming system.

Agriculture

Farmers face a multitude of challenges when it comes to producing high-quality crops while maximizing production.

The use of drones in agriculture is dramatically changing the way the sector works.

Drones can perform several tasks effortlessly and efficiently thereby reducing costs and manpower.

Charis UAS provides comprehensive services including:

  • Crop Variability Detection
  • Aerial Crop Scouting
  • Crop Damage Assessment
  • Crop Identification
  • Drone Field Scouting
  • Drone Farm Surveying
  • Crop Spraying and Protection

UAVs bring a host of benefits to farmers and the agricultural sector as a whole and the Charis UAS is one of the leading agriculture drone companies in Africa and is ready to help you bring farming into the future.

Asset Inspections

With their high-quality drone cameras (XT2), Charis UAS offers thermal imagery that improves the accuracy of reports by providing an internal view (thermal POV) of your building or machinery components.

Their drones are versatile and can be adapted to also execute rooftop inspections. The Z30 drone camera is capable of a 30x zoom and retains perfect image quality.

Additionally, inspections are performed at a secure distance from buildings or structures thereby improving inspection safety and eliminating any potential hazards to workers.

Drone technology speeds up necessary inspections by identifying current and future problem areas, allowing you to employ efficient, targeted interventions. When it comes to asset inspections, drones present a faster, cheaper, and safer option for your projects.

Mapping

Charis UAS’s photogrammetric services are second to none. Using UAV technology, they collect, measure, and analyze aerial photographs to produce meaningful 3d drone mapping. 

Data can be imported into GIS applications and other surveying programs for further analysis by Charis UAS’s team of experts.

With their high-end and RTK-based drones, Charis UAS provides faster and more accurate topographical surveys.

Each drone is equipped with specialized sensors and equipment that gather reliable information about the environment, allowing you to make more informed decisions on your projects.

With faster speeds, lower costs, and more reliable data, aerial surveys using drones are an excellent option for upgrading your mapping projects.

Mining

Making decisions with the most up-to-date and reliable information is critical for site managers, especially when planning and executing any work on a mine or quarry site. 

Drone technology offers mining companies multiple options to improve results and speed up work projects.

Drones transform the world of mining by delivering rapid, high-resolution maps, in-depth topographical surveys, and aerial imagery that outperform traditional methods.

Drone Spraying

Be it plain fields, orchards, mountains, hills, or terraces, our agriculture spraying drones are capable of spraying fertilizer, pesticides, and other necessary liquids onto every crop with uniformity and precision.

With higher flight speeds and greater spraying flow, the operational efficiency of our spraying drone can reach up to 14 hectares an hour, which is equivalent to the work of 100 farmland laborers. 

Farmers can save time and energy while increasing their production capabilities.
